Grain Sides – Available on S/5 upwards; comes complete with a full height door to allow bulky loads to be safely discharged.
Silage Sides – Available on S/5 upwards; comes complete with two side loading panels and uses Marshall's unique hydraulic silage door locking system fitted to the rear of the trailer, preventing any damage from the side.
Mesh Sides – Available on all models; these sides simply bolt on to the trailer. They provide an increased capacity for light loads such as leaves and grass.
Lighting Arrangement – Lights are standard on our S/4 model upwards and optional on our S/2 model. The standard light units fitted are commercial grade, and sealed to prevent water damage. In addition it is also possible to upgrade to LED lights and LED beacons are available as an option for all models.
Pressed Panel Construction – This production technique increases strength and rigidity without adding significant weight, ensuring that the side panels can safely and easily be handled or removed.
Fixed Headboard – Every trailer in our drop-side range has a fixed headboard as standard. This increases torsional rigidity to reduce flexing when the trailer is being used.
Fully-braced Hinge Points – Our whole drop-side range uses the same hinge points, which are reinforced to stand up to the constant opening and closing action drop-side trailers have to endure.
Fully Welded Construction – No compromises are made in the construction of our trailers, with every model utilizing a fully welded construction. This provides two major benefits; the overall durability of the trailer is increased and there is less opportunity for water to sit and cause rust.
Marshall Chassis Design – Our smaller models use a fully-welded channel chassis that provides unmatched strength while keeping weight down. Our S/85 and S/10 models use a square chassis configuration to improve stability and reduce flexing when loading. In addition our S/10 model also benefits from a further strengthened chassis, which employs an 8mm thick reinforcing plate over the front of the chassis members to provide incredible rigidity.
Spring Suspension Option – Available on our tandem S/85 and S/10 models as a no-cost option and on our single-axle S/4, S/5 and S/6 models as an optional extra. The benefit of spring suspension is for road-work because it handles uneven surfaces better at speed.
Rocker Tandem Suspension Option – Only available on our tandem S/85 and S/10 models as a no-cost option. This suspension set-up is excellent on steep ground or when transporting high-loads since it prevents lateral movement improving the stability of the trailer.
Axles & Braking – Our Whole drop-side range comes complete with hydraulically operated brakes as standard; the only exception is our S/2 model, which has the option to fit hydraulic brakes. The size of the brakes on our drop-side range are also more then acceptable; providing braking efficiency in excess of the current legal requirements.
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 – 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 – 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 S/85 drop side trailer is an extremely flexible design that can carry out a huge variety of jobs effectively.
The drop side design provides excellent versatility, allowing the trailer to be used as a flat-bed or a proper trailer. This drastically increases the jobs this trailer can be used for, whether it is moving pallets, small machines, sand or grass; it really can handle all jobs. The S/85 also has the option of mesh, grain or silage sides making it an even more versatile piece of kit and maximising the trailers functionality.
The body of the S/85 has a 4mm floor and 2.5mm sides in two panels, still allowing them to be easily removed if necessary. The hinge points for the sides are also reinforced to prevent cracking or twisting under heavy loads. To improve rigidity the trailer also has a fixed headboard, which reduces flexing during loading and transport. In addition to these design features the trailers body is tapered allowing loads to be safely discharged without the risk of them sticking in the trailer.
The trailer chassis utilises our tried and tested design developed over 60 years of trailer manufacturing, and provides exceptional strength. Its square design also helps reducing flexing, as it runs the whole length of the trailer. The S/85 is also fully-equipped with hydraulic tipping rams, hydraulic brakes and lights, which means it ready to be used from the moment it is delivered.
Significantly the S/85 has a tandem axle meaning either spring or rocker suspension can be fitted as a no-cost option. This means the S/85 can take on the most demanding jobs around the farm, whether it is simply moving silage or transporting grain on the road.
The Marshall S/85 is a multi-purpose trailer that performs extremely well in a number of different roles and easily meets the challenges of the modern agricultural industry.

What are the current regulations on agricultural trailer brakes?Read more
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.
What is the best running gear; rockers or springs?Read more
What is the best running gear; rockers or springs?
This is a question we are constantly asked by customers since the type of running gear will have a huge effect on how the machine performs. There is no definitive answer on which suspension system is better since they both have their own benefits and drawbacks.
Split oscillating suspension or rockers as it is better known is ideal for machines that will carry high, potentially unstable loads as it eliminates lateral movement of the trailer ensuring the load can be safely transported. Crucially this is benefit is not achieved at the expense of ride quality since the tandems are still able move vertically and therefore allow the trailer to travel smoothly over rough ground. The stability of rockers makes them ideal on bale trailers, which are constantly transporting high loads, or on trailers working on steep ground.
Marshalls rocking beams are all extremely heavy-duty, and are produced on site by our skilled engineers. In addition to the robust design, all our tandems utilise devlon bushes, which significantly reduces wear and prolongs the life of the rockers.
The alternative to rockers is spring suspension, which is predominantly used on trailers carrying out a lot of road work. Springs provide an extremely smooth ride and perform better than rockers can on the road, particularly at higher speeds. This type of suspension also allows air brakes with load sensing to be fitted; automatic load sensing does not work on rocker tandem suspension. However the main disadvantage of springs is that they do allow lateral movement of the trailer, making them less stable on steep slopes or with higher loads.
Whatever suspension set-up you prefer Marshalls offers either as a no-cost option, ensuring your next Marshall will be exactly what you want.
