HistoryEdit

Marshall, Sons & Co. of Gainsborough were manufacturers of a range of Steam tractors and Engines.

The companies early attempt at an Internal combustion engined tractor was the huge Marshall Colonial of 1908. This huge 70 hp Prairie monster was built for export mainly to Australia and New Zealand and few have survived from the 300 built. One example (pictured) is in the Robert Crawford collection and is occasional exhibited at shows such as the special Marshall gathering at Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show in 2008, were it won the Old Glory prize for the oldest tractor at the Show.

Before going on to build the Field Marshall range of tractors. (see separate Article)
