  • Features
    • BC Chassis Design
      BC Chassis Design – Every model benefits from heavy-duty channels to form a square chassis design that improves rigidity and reduces flexing during loading.
    • BC Bed Design
      BC Bed Design – The entire range has an option of a treated pine floors or non-slip chequered plate steel floors. The side runners and floor bearers are constructed from box-section to improve strength and remove any places where water could sit.
    • 21
      21" Fixed Headboard – Standard on all models, except our BC/18, this also dramatically increases the rigidity of the trailer.
    • Harvest Ladders
      Harvest Ladders – Standard front and rear ladders on all models, with a galvanized finish to provide effective protection. The rear ladders on all models are adjustable from a straight to an angled position to accommodate different types of bales.
    • Rope Hooks & Ratchet Strap Points
      Rope Hooks & Ratchet Strap Points – Every model has heavy duty 5/8" rope hooks along each side and at both the front and the back. The side rails of the entire range are also folded from 6mm steel plate with dedicated ratchet strap points to meet the required legislation.
    • BC Lighting Arrangement
      BC Lighting Arrangement – Every model ha sealed commercial quality light units that are recessed into the back rail of the trailer to improve protection. LED front marker lights are also a standard feature on all models.
    • Rear Crash Barrier
      Rear Crash Barrier – Standard on all models the crash barrier is formed from box section and can be folded away or removed if preferable.
    • BC Axles & Braking
      BC Axles & Braking – The standard axles on all our models are more than adequate for most jobs. However commercial 10 stud axles can be specified to provide high-speed performance and enhanced braking.
    • BC Tyres
      BC Tyres – It is possible to upgrade the tyres on our entire BC range to better handle different jobs. Tyres available include miniature super-singles, low and wide 445-45x19.5 tyres to reduce the bed height and a variety of floatation tyres. All tyre options can be "dealer fitted" except the low profile 445-45 x 19.5 or 355/50 x 22.5 tyres.
    • Paint Finish
      Paint Finish – Since November 2011 we have shot-blasted, this is acknowledged in the paint industry as the best possible method for preparing steel for painting. The shot-blasting creates a profile for the paint to adhere to, improving adhesion and in turn the protection offered to the steel. Our five man team of trained sprayers then use the latest spraying equipment to finish our products with a dual layer paint finish. Every machine is finished with 80 microns of high-build primer and 50 microns of gloss polyurethane; this combination provides excellent protection and a high-quality finish.
    • Delivery
      Delivery – Marshall Trailers uses a computerized build system to plan production to ensure that machines are delivered on time. The final stage of delivery is undertake by our two artic lorries, a 7.5ton rigid lorry and a number of other haulage partners.
    • Spare Parts
      Spare Parts – Marshall Trailers has a full selection of spare parts for all our ranges, most of which can be dispatched immediately. In some cases we have spares for machines dating back forty years, which gives of mind when you buy a Marshall that you will be properly supported well into the future.

    The Marshall BC/18 is the most compact model in our bale trailer range, providing excellent maneuverability for narrow lanes and tight spaces.

    It has box section bearers and runners which provides exceptional strength and prevents water from prematurely rusting the trailer. The strength of the trailer is further enhanced by heavy-duty channels forming a square chassis that extends the length of the trailer and also reduces flexing when loading the trailer.

    The standard floor on a BC/18 is a 3mm durabar floor that significantly reduces the potential for loads to move during transport. In addition to this Marshalls also offers a 30mm treated pine floor for customers who prefer a more traditional design.

    The BC/18 also comes with harvest ladders as standard, ensuring it is capable of carrying all types of load safely from the moment it is purchased. The harvest ladders are galvanised as standard to ensure they do not rust if left outside when not in use. The rear ladder is also adjustable and can be positioned straight or angled depending on the type of bales. On top of this all Marshall bale trailers have hydraulic brakes and lights as standard to comply with all the necessary health and safety legislation.

    The impressive standard features and quality build means the BC/18 is a capable trailer that would suit areas with tight gates and narrow lanes.

      What are the current regulations on agricultural trailer brakes?

      The law currently states that trailers travelling below 25mph have to have a braking efficiency of at least 25% (UK Road Vehicle Construction & Use Regulations). Above this speed it is unclear exactly what requirements an agricultural trailer has to meet, whether it is commercial braking requirements or still simply a 25% braking efficiency.

      There is currently EU legislation under discussion which would implement a 50% braking efficiency for agricultural trailers, but this has been already been debated for a number of years without it becoming law. It seems unlikely that it will be implemented within the next few years, if ever, since this would impose higher braking standards than required on commercial vehicles.

      Marshall products are fitted with hydraulic brakes as standard and on average provide a braking efficiency of 35%, which exceeds the current legal requirements. This impressive baseline performance is achieved by fitting high quality axles supplied by the world’s leading axle manufacturer, combined with enlarged 25mm brake cylinders and durable 2 wire hoses.

      Take time to examine the specifications of our models and take note of the brake sizes and axles sizes. In particular notice we fit commercial 420 x 180 10 stud axles as standard on our QM/14, QM/16, QM/1600 and QM1800 models; not 10 stud industrial axles, which provide significantly reduced performance. The way to tell the difference between these axles is a commercial axle uses an S-cam brake rode while an industrial axle uses a flat-cam brake rod.

      If a customer requires enhanced braking performance we also offer air brakes with loading sensing, full ABS systems and a number of axle upgrades. This guarantees a Marshall trailer can meet current legal requirements now and any EU legislation that could potentially be introduced in the future.
