Re: Marshalls
IHP,

What happened to the Marshall? I remember seeing pics of them in Farmers Weekly years ago but never read whether they closed down, were taken over or what happened,

Cheers,

TC.

Re: Marshalls
Marshall are gone now they i think there sales were very bad so they became bankrupt any way one of there dealers bought the rights to marshal also including the rights to nuffield and leyland they got engines cabs wheels housings 4wd axles all brand new they also got all the equipment to build them.

so they built about 50 tractors while making all the nessesary improvements with some new features like a tilting cab!

They called the tractors JWC i think which was the enishiles of the father and the two sons who now build them.:-D

Re: Marshalls
Marshall's were built in Gainsborough, Lincs. This is a town I know well. The old factory where they were built is now being converted into a shopping centre. :-(

This is also where the Track Marshall was built.

Re: Marshalls
I know every nuffield/leyland/marshall model ever made;-)

They went bankrupt only once as leyland in 1983?

Marshall are yellow leylands (owned by "Nickersons seeds" I think) they were always crap and were never as good as blue leylands.
They did not go bust because of bad sales, it was simply useless managment trying to make a profit rather than make tractors.
(They painted steyr yellow and stupid things):-/

Then they were bought by Daimler and they made even more crap tractors:-[
In the end John charnleys bought all the junk from the factory and made some "JWD" tractors! but they now sell mcormick:-(


Anyway, These marshalls in the pics are still all leyland mechanics! but the Last one has ZF gearbox

Re: Marshalls
I take it your not going to paint your leyland yellow then! Mc Cormick tractors are now for the second time going to be only history as you probebly know Internash.as you now we have had nuffields and leylands over the years as well we currently have a very original 4/60 and an industrial 10/60 with wide wings

I my self would like to get a 2100 some time as for we had some of these over the years we had one kept as a stand by tractor for our DB 1690 jurring the summer for the mower!

which was the most succsessfull internash nuffield or leylan?
one man worked on dezining David Browns and leyland i red this in some DB book.:-D:-D

Re: Marshalls
Ewww your right! those too!

Yes I read that too, He designed David browns and nuffield at the same time this is why both have chassis rails!

2100 is amazing tractor, I want one too:-)
Best leyland is the 472
Best Nuffield is the universal 4
Best marshall is the 804
But My favorite is 285 synchro (it is a 2100 but with less HP)
