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 other African countries.

Nationally (across the country)

The Falcon range includes slashers, Haymakers®, material handling implements, mulchers, mowers, spreaders, rotavators and ploughs. 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 a long time!

The Locust range of implements is particularly suited to smallholders, more price-sensitive buyers and emerging farmers. These implements, which include slashers 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), the Votex shredders and mowers, including reach mowers (from the Netherlands), and the heavy-duty Woods Batwing rotary cutters (from the USA).

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.
