12 Tonne Marston Grain Trailer

The Marston Grain Trailer was the first trailer I bought after I got the RC Massey 8680 working and it’s obvious why I wanted it, what better for an RC Tractor than a dump trailer. I was only interested in getting it to tip, I wasn’t worried about LED lights or anything like that.

The trailer has a diecast body with a plastic chassis which makes it difficult to lift even without a load. In retrospect it probably wasn’t the best choice of trailer for the job and now I tend to go for trailers with plastic body only to make the conversions easier.
