About Falcon Equipment
Falcon Agricultural Equipment (Pty) Ltd is an owner-managed business and the largest manufacturer of rotary cutters in Africa. The company opened its doors in 1985, at its current premises in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This is the ideal location, as it is in an agricultural area with a leading agricultural college nearby. Falcon is a recognised Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment contributor and our skilled labour force is a dedicated team of whom we are proud.
Our primary market is the agricultural sector, with niche efforts into the industrial and turf implement markets. We distribute our products through more than 350 authorised dealers countrywide, as well as across our borders into 12 other African countries.
We manufacture the Falcon and Locust ranges of implements and our on-going programme of innovation and improvement ensures that we consistently launch implements to satisfy our customers’ ever-changing requirements.
The Falcon range includes slashers, Haymakers®, material handling implements, mulchers, mowers, spreaders and rotavators. Each one is designed to be simple, safe and serviceable, offering excellent value for money. They are built to last and are capable of coping with the tough South African conditions.
In many parts of South Africa, “Falcon” is the generic term for grass-cutting implements, making us the undisputed leader in our field. Delivery on a marketing promise is the foundation of any successful marketing drive and farmers buying the Falcon brand buy more than just a product – they buy the heritage and expertise of a company that has been around for more than 30 years!
The Locust range of implements is particularly suited to smallholders, more price-sensitive buyers and emerging farmers. These implements, which include slashers, ploughs and a rollermower, work well with older or lower-powered tractors.
We also import a range of implements that complement the locally manufactured ones. These include the Amazone spreaders, sprayers, mowers and soil tillage implements (from Germany), and the Votex shredders and mowers, including reach mowers (from the Netherlands).
Falcon Agricultural Equipment (Pty) Ltd is committed to supporting our local communities in many different ways. Our main focus is the well-being of children, and we provide a safe and suitable school environment for them, as well as school-related necessities.
Our team prides itself on its professional approach to business. We have built long-standing relationships with our dealers and their customers based on honesty, trust, respect and integrity. Excellent customer service is an important part of the Falcon promise.
