Field Marshall Series 1 MK II was mainly used by forestry contractors & Threshing Mill Contractors,
Model history / description
It came with a Marshall built winch fitted snugly under the rear platform.
An electric lighting set came as standard with the Series 1 MKII and consisted of a single headlamp, 2 x side light & a rear number plate light, an optional rear ploughing light was also available .
Improved brakes were also added as this tractor was designed to pull heavy loads it required better brakes for stopping, Rear drum brakes were fitted as well as the standard transmission brake.
A Rag Top (canvas) canopy was fitted as an optional extra as was a threshing top exhaust which added about 1ft in height to the standard exhaust, It should be noted the threshing top exhaust had a flared top to it unlike the standard cigar shaped silencer common among Marshall Series 1 tractors.
All Series 1's were painted in Mid-Brunswick Green paint with Silver wheels
The easiest way to tell a series 1 from a series 2 is the rear hubs, if they stick out from the center then its a series 1, where the later series 2 models have a flush hub with 2 x 3/4 whitworth plugs fitted for brake drum removal purposes.
The Tractors run from sn ? to sn ?
The Series 1 MK II in the pictures is owned by Cameron Anderson, and is one of the most original condition tractors in preservation in the UK.
