The Kekmet is a tractor owned by the player. It can be found inside the woodshed by the player's house. Its main use is to deliver firewood to the firewood guy by using the trailer, but it can be used to tow junk cars as well, and its front lift can be used to lift the Satsuma for easy access to the undercarriage.

The Kekmet is based on a Finnish Valmet 502. The Valmet name comes from Valtion Metallitehtaat (lit. State's metal factories).

The tractor uses diesel fuel. The grey fuel filler cap can be found on the right side in between the operator cabin and forklift arm. The fuel tank can hold up to 65 litres of diesel.

Levers and controlsEdit

Kekmet controls

1. Hand throttle 10. Clutch pedal
2. Brake pedals 11. Light switch
3. Accelerator pedal 12. Fuel meter
4. Diff lock 13. Temp meter
5. Gear stick 14. Ignition
6. Range selector 15. RPM/hours meter
7. Front hydraulics 16. No function
8. Rear hydraulics 17. No function
9. Hand brake 18. No function

The Kekmet has several levers in the cabin. Next to the steering wheel on the right there's the hand throttle (1). The hand throttle is used to manually set a certain level of throttle, which is convenient for operating the rear hydraulics. Holding the left mouse button opens the throttle (increases engine speed) while the right mouse button closes it.

The diff lock (4) is the pedal to the right under the seat on the floor. When activated, the differential lock forces both rear wheels to rotate at the same speed regardless of differences in traction between them. This causes the wheel with better traction to receive more of the available power (in the form of torque) and apply it to the driving surface. This can be useful for manoeuvring across difficult terrain, where one wheel may leave the driving surface, but at the same time it makes turning slower on level terrain (i.e., on roads).

On the far right side of the seat is the range selector (6) and it has two settings: low and high. The setting can be toggled with the R key by default. Low range gears are used to move in difficult terrain at slow speed (especially uphill) and to get moving from a complete stop, while high range gears are used on easier terrain, like roads, to achieve a higher top speed.

Nearer to the right side of the seat is the front hydraulics lever (7). Holding the left mouse button raises the forklift and holding the right mouse button lowers it.

Under the seat to the left is the rear hydraulics lever (8). This lever has three settings that apply (at the moment) only for the trailer: down, neutral and up. The lever is operated by left and right clicks. The engine must be revved up in order to raise or lower the trailer, either with the accelerator pedal or by using the hand throttle.

The hand brake (9) is the hook-like lever on the left side of the seat near the floor. It functions similarly to the other hand brakes. Holding left click activates the brake and holding right click releases it.

  • The front loader is based on a Solid 2100 front loader.
