I hired a Marshall a few years ago, really struggled to get an even spread because of the inconsistent push of the ram. When you start spreading, nothing comes out until it's pushed fair, then a heap comes out.

Ah I see, their are always reasons why others are more popular right enough.

I have a Marshall got it new in 04 did have a issue at the beginning with the pusher ram but they quickly sorted that and it’s been great. They have had a few design changes over the years a good farmers machine it’s simple and reliable

Bunning Farmstar 80 was £20k 2 months ago.

RW 4095 was £19700

If you go to the low lander bunnings it’s about £25k from memory for an 85, or £26k for a 105c

It's not the machines fault if the operator hasn't set it up properly.

The valve needs adjusted so that each stage of the ram travels at the same speed, or obviously it won't spread evenly 🙄

They're not as big a capacity as some machines, but they're the only one that will evenly spread anything from fresh dry straw dung, to slurry.

They're cheaper up buy, and with virtually bugger all to go wrong with them, they're cheaper to own. You do have to know how to operate them though!

Good to know , I only need small one as want to spread
On steep land rough land etc so don’t need nothing enormous

I spent 2 years buying a rear discharge spreader was trying to figure which was best there was none at all within 50 miles of here went to look at them all at grass and muck in Uk. ended up buying a Conor as I thought it was well built have it nearly 3 years and it never missed a beat would highly recommend them. From memory I think it was around €22k

The control valve on the marshalls can be problematic over time and fiddly to set up I have seen a few where it has been done away with and piped to a spool , not ideal for even spread but saves ££ for a new one .
Need to always remember and pull the ram in before loading it !!!! Unless your good with a grape !!
