Is there a way to allow a windrower to pick up silage or other fill types?

Principle 'forageWagon': the vehicle needs additionally the specs 'pickup' and 'fillUnit'. And of course a discharge possiblity.

However that's not very realistic, isn't it? *g*

well in the traditional sense, no but there is a windrower mo, the windrow king, that looks like it would be excellent for cleaning up the trough area and bunker silo's if only it could pick up silage. so as a personal edit that is my plan and doesn't seem far fetched that some one would use it as such.

my question to you now is if i make it a 'forageWagon' would it still pick it up and discharge it automatically like it does now with straw, hay and grass?

ah - you mean it should not really load something, but only pickup and deposit immediately? Just what the windrower does but instead straw/grass now with silage etc.?
That's not trivial, because straw/grass are types of <fruitType ...> => <windrow> and a windrower (workArea) only manages these types.
For regular fillTypes (like silage) you need another spec. I think with spec 'shovel' it could work.
There are also some mods around kind of bunker silo tools. There fillTypes could be added.
