The MS105 is the largest model in Marshall’s side-discharge muck spreader range, and is designed for spreading significant quantities of muck without any hassle.
It has a 4.5mm drum and 6mm ends, which is hugely over engineered for the size of the spreader and therefore drastically improves its lifespan.
The chains used in this model are case hardened flail chains with fully-welded heads, not simply held on with a bolt or pin; this significantly reduces wearing of the chains and chain heads.
Furthermore this model moves up to a 14mm chain head to ensure that the high build quality is maintained.
The chains are also mounted on four sides of a perfectly balanced main rotor, to help create a more even spread pattern.
The sprockets used in the spreader are precision steel sprockets, not cast, located to the shaft by a 10 pitch spline.
These sprockets are much stronger than cast sprockets and reduce the chance of component failure, prolonging the life of the spreader.
The MS105 model uses duplex sprockets and chains to guarantee the spreader can cope with the demands placed on it.
In addition the bottom input shaft is mounted by two bearings and the drive sprocket is positioned between them for maximum strength, further reducing the chances of component failure.
All bearings on Marshall spreaders are also mounted away from the drum limiting the potential damage from corrosive slurry.
The spreader lid is opened by a hydraulic ram which is made from stainless steel to eliminate corrosion.
The lid itself is extremely large allowing easy loading with today’s larger loading forks and grabs.
It is also worth noting lids open vertically so the muck does not have to be edged in.
The overall strength of the spreader is further enhanced by the Marshall integral chassis design that has been used for over 30 years.
This removes any stress on the drum of the spreader that could potentially cause premature cracking.
On top of this the MS105 also has hydraulic brakes and lights integrated into the back rail as standard, ensuring it complies with all health and safety regulations.
The MS105 is Marshall’s flagship muck spreader model, with a large carrying capacity and standard tough build.
