Here at ESR, we love most things simulator, one of those things has to be Farming Simulator. There is nothing more satisfying than harvesting a field of wheat and then bailing the hay and neatly packing it onto a trailer ready for sale, am I right?
But if you are a lover of this particular niche on Xbox, PlayStation 4 or PC, we have a question for you. What is better than playing Farming Simulator? The answer, Farming Simulator with a steering wheel.
Let’s dive in and see what is actually available and compatible for Farming Simulator 19.

Which Steering Wheel is best for Farming Simulator?
The Logitech G25 was the early wheel that kind of started it all.
This fantastic wheel was the one wheel that pushed the bar higher than any other back in 2006!
With its 270mm leather-wrapped wheel and its 900 degrees of turn, the G25 was a true simmers dream.
Initially, the Logitech G25 wasn’t compatible with Farming Simulator 19 with Giants game seeing the wheel as a gamepad and the d-pad as the actual axis controls. But with updates and by reassigning the buttons in the Logitech profiler, players were well on their way to using this old trusty wheel again.
If you are on a low budget and looking for a Farming Simulator steering wheel then you can still pick this up for a steal on places like eBay and Craigslist for as little as $50.
Logitech’s G27 was the natural progressor from the G25 and was basically the updated version.
It also comes with a 270mm leather-wrapped wheel and 900 degrees of rotation, 2 paddle shifters and force-feedback. But the updated motors and gears made the wheel a lot quieter.
Is the G27 a good Farming Simulator steering wheel?
The G27 is the perfect wheel in our opinion for the entry-level Farming Simulator player because of its cheap price and brilliant build quality.
The Logitech G27 is compatible with Farming Simulator 19 although you may need to reassign a few buttons in the Logitech profiler.
You can pick the G27 up quite cheaply second hand from eBay and Craigslist.
Both wheels have a diameter of 270mm and also offer 900 degrees of rotation, with its force feedback and hand-stitched steering wheel cover it feels like a quality product.
The G29/G920 are the latest wheels to come from Logitech and offer much quieter experience than their predecessors. USB connection makes it the easy plug-in and play experience we have come to expect from Logitech.
A slightly more expensive wheel and you can still buy these brand new with warranty, the G29/G920 is probably the best steering wheel to buy right now.
The G29/G920 is completely compatible with Farming Simulator 19, making it a perfect Farmins Simulator steering wheel.
Logitech Farm Heavy Equipment Bundle
This is the pinnacle in steering wheels when it comes to Farming Simulator 19, you just canty get any better!
The Logitech Farm Heavey Equipment Bundle was made for Farming Simulator and has taken the Farming Sim world by storm.
If you want to take your Farm sim gaming to the next level then this Steering Wheel is for you. With its 900 degrees of rotation and turn knob, you will be as close to the real thing as you can be.
The bundle has two analog sticks for moving characters and cameras and a horn button in the center. This bundle comes with an all-axes loader control with more than 25 programmable buttons and a loader stick, ideal for operating cranes, forks and chippers.
Made from hard-wearing plastic we would say this wheel is more a luxury item than a necessity, ideal for the farming sim enthusiast but unfortunately can only be used with that particular game.
