Marston-branded trailers back on the market

Farmers lamenting the loss of Marston’s trademark blue trailers can now get their hands on a series of new models sporting the Grantham maker’s name and colour scheme.

Marston Agricultural Services went into administration in late 2013 – after more than 60 years of trading – and the name was bought by Suffolk firm Hunton Legg the following January.

Now thanks to an agreement with Hunton Legg, Angus-based dealer Norman F. Ogg has started selling a series of trailers under the Marston brand. “After 39 years as a Marston dealer, and with lots of loyal customers, we really wanted to keep the name out there,” said Mr Ogg.

The new trailers are being built to Mr Ogg’s specifications with Dundee firm Vegcraft manufacturing the flatbeds and Buckinghamshire-based K-Two building the tippers.

Prices for the Roadeo Curve tipper models start at £19,955 for a 16t model, going up to £23,000 for a fully specced 20t model with roll-over sheets, parabolic suspension and BKT flotation tyres.
