All of the machines require fuel to work. Each machine will come with a small amount of fuel to get you started, but then you will need to purchase more fuel.

Fuel:

To purchase fuel, click on the market icon (scale on your task bar), then click "Machinery", then click "Fuel".  You can purchase fuel in different amounts from 100 to 5000 litres.  You use coins to purchase fuel, except for the 5000 litres, which costs 1 diamond.

For every plot your machine does, it will use 1 litre of fuel, so if you purchase 100 litres of fuel, then you will be able to run your machine on 100 plots before you need to buy more.

To get a machine to stop once you've started it working, just click on the machine with your "shovel" & it will stop.

 

The Machines:

Red Tractor and Blue Caterpillar - these plow your plots for you. If you have a lot of plots to plow, it is much faster to use a tractor to get the job done and a lot easier on your mouse finger. To use, click on the machine, then click "plow".

Yellow Harvester - this machine will harvest your plots for you and does it much faster than your farmer doing the harvesting.

To use, click on your machine, then click "collect crops". 

Please note: You cannot control where your harvester goes; it will always harvest everything in its path that is ripe, including your craft items.  If you will need something for a craft, remember to collect it by hand before starting your harvester!

Orchard Harvester - this machine will harvest your trees, berry & flower bushes for you and does it faster than your farmer doing the harvesting.

To use, click on your machine, then click "collect fruit". 

Please note: You cannot control where your harvester goes; it will always harvest everything in its path that is ripe.  If you need something for a craft, remember to collect it before starting your harvester!

Seeding Machine - this machine will seed your plots faster than seeding invidually with your farmer. 

To use, click on the machine, then click "seed". It will ask you to choose your crop. After you choose your crop, click on the plot where you want to start seeding, then pull the green grid left or right, up or down to cover all the plots you want to seed. Remember to click on the the last plot you want seeded or it will only seed the first plot & none of the rest.

Truck - this machine will go around to all of your factories, greenhouses and animal sheds and collect everything, sending coins to your counter & product to the appropriate factories.

To use, click on the machine, then click on "collect crops".

Please note: You cannot control where your truck goes; it will always collect from every shed or factory that is ready. Remember to collect by hand for your crafts first!

NOTE:  Your machines won't run while your farmer is collecting product by hand.  Instead, it will sit & wait until your farmer is done, then begin working as soon as your farmer is finished.
