Leyland 802 - Marshall 802

Post by Mr. Dactyl » Thu Jan 07, 2021 1:35 am

I am looking at a 1981 Leyland 802 tractor.

In what ways are the Leyland 802 and Marshall 802 similar or different?

Thank you.

If the tractor is a "Rebuilt" Leyland then there is very little difference, but as Marshal said at the time "Better built by Marshall". A number of Leylands were rebadged as "Marshall", they retained the Leyland serial number plate.

On the other hand if it is a Marshall, Gainsborough, built tractor then there are a number of "Improvements", See attached chart for the differenced brought in at the commencement of production. A load of other improvements were introduced as time went by, the main one being a much improved hydraulic system and the Hi-Lo sandwich box at the front of the gearbox.

I have probably missed a few items.


If it ain't bust don't fix it!
