The vacuum pump will be used to pump the crop inside the packing station and pack all your crops to sell them to the traders. Next to the road you will find a packing station, drive your vehicle along the roads and eventually you will meet one station.

You can create a vacuum pump from a craft bot, which you will find in the mechanics station. You need to install the vacuum pump on your vehicle. Place the vacuum pump in the packing station as shown in the picture. The packing station will take 10 harvests and pack them in a shipping container.

Note. To use the vacuum pump, install a switch and connect it to the pump.

A water pump will help you collect a lot of water, and much faster, and you can use it to water your crops. You don’t need to refill a bucket of water every time you want to water your crops.
