The Falcon Rotavator is the most efficient means of transmitting engine power directly to the soil with no wheel slip and with a major reduction in transmission power loss. The rotavator will produce a perfect seedbed in fewer passes. It is the ideal implement for cash crop farmers who need to bury and incorporate crop residues quickly, between crops. The rotor turns at the optimum speed for all cultivation operations and the required tilth can be obtained by adjusting the forward speed and the setting of the rear deflector. Blades can be mounted in the three-bladed configuration for a fine tilth or in the two-bladed configuration for a coarser finish. It is a versatile implement that can be used to create seedbeds, for green manuring as well as for weeding and stubble-mulching.
Falcon Rotavators are designed to suit tractors from 35 to 60 kW. There are four different models, the smallest being the F125 with a working width of 1,28 m (35–60 kW). The F150 has a working width of 1,53 m (42–60 kW). The F175’s working width is 1,75 m (45–60 kW) and the largest rotavator is the F200 with a working width of 2,03 m (48–60 kW).
Bedformers are also available in all the above-mentioned sizes.
All implements are supplied with a PTO shaft and torque-limiting slip-clutch, central and offset mounting points, depth control skids, a parking stand and a complete set of blades. Applications for the rotary cultivator include:
- seedbeds – from coarse to fine, on uncultivated, ripped or ploughed soil
- green manuring
- fertiliser incorporation
- planting kikuyu grass
- preparing playing fields
- soil stabilisation for roads.
