This year’s NAMPO Harvest Day featured a wide range of innovative agricultural equipment. At the Falcon stand producers had the opportunity to experience locally produced Falcon implements made specifically with South African producers in mind.

Launched at NAMPO 2024
The Falcon Bale Grab was launched at NAMPO and boasts the capacity for 3 x 750 kg big pack bales in one grab. Attachment options are available for either Wacker Neuson or JCB telehandlers.

Imported by Falcon, the Amazone Cayros XMS V 5-950 is a versatile mounted reversable plough with hydraulically adjusted furrow width, manual working-depth adjustment, shear bolt protection and a hydraulic turnover system with double-acting cylinder. Also new at NAMPO was the Amazone Tyrok 400 semi-mounted reversible plough which offers a choice of six to nine furrows.

Falcon F210-TI Offset Tilt Flail Mower
Introduced at NAMPO Cape in 2023, the Falcon F210-TI Offset Tilt Flail Mower enables precise cutting on uneven terrain. Whether it’s a gentle slope or a bumpy field, the F210-TI maintains consistent performance which allows mowing at a decline of 65 degrees up to a vertical incline.

The flail design ensures effective mulching and shredding of vegetation. It’s ideal for maintaining grassy areas, pasture maintenance, general bush clearing, maintenance of roadways, as well as slashing/mulching of maize and wheat residue.

myAMAZONE portal integration
Falcon Equipment also showcased its integration with the myAMAZONE portal. This digital platform provides producers with valuable insights, maintenance schedules, and real-time data related to their equipment. By connecting Amazone implements to myAMAZONE, users can monitor performance, access manuals and guides and order spare parts.
