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 – 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" Fixed Headboard – Standard on all models, except our BC/18, this also dramatically increases the rigidity of the trailer.
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 – 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 – 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 – Standard on all models the crash barrier is formed from box section and can be folded away or removed if preferable.
BC Suspension – The normal suspension offered on our bale trailer range is our split-oscillating suspension, which reduces lateral movement and improves stability of high loads. Spring suspension, if preferred, is also available for high-speed road work as a no-cost option.
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 – 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.
Easy Secure System – The Marshall Easy Secure System fits BC-25-12T models upwards and can be used for a variety of loads from bales to fertiliser bags and boxes. The system incorporates two hydraulically lifted bars that pull a pair of securing nets into place on either side of the trailer, reducing the need for strapping and further tying down of cargo. There are a number of benefits to this design, using nets instead of complicated steel frames reduces the chance of damage, the nets fold together when in the lowered position so the trailer can be moved or un-hitched, and the system works with more than just bales.

The Marshall BC/32-Tridem is the largest model in our bale trailer range, and provides a massive carrying capacity and excellent Marshall build quality.
It has box section bearers and folded side rails which provide 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. Another standard feature that also helps deal with flexing when loading is the 21” headboard, which improves the overall rigidity of the trailer. The BC/32-Tridem uses 10 stud tridem axles as standard with spring suspension.
The standard floor on a BC/32-Tridem is a 4mm durabar floor that significantly reduces the potential for loads to move during transport.
The BC/32-Tridem 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. Finally the BC/32-Tridem also includes a spring drawbar as standard, which provides a smooth ride for the tractor operator and prevents the tractor bouncing.
The BC/32-Tridem has a large carrying capacity, combined with a stable and smooth ride on the road.

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.
No-cost Option. Provides excellent performance on the road.
