Marst Agri

What We Do

Our overall combined agricultural experience is more than 55 years and we are amongst the most highly-trained Merlo engineers in the country, making us best-placed for both servicing and sales. We hold a large volume of spare parts for all types of Merlo machinery and CORVUS UTVs. We also stock a vast range of consumables, oil and PPE for your everyday needs, to keep the machinery safe and in top working order. If, however, you need something more specialised, we will source this for you through our network of exceptional supplier accounts.

We have an on-site and online country store. We stock the Hazy Blue Country Collection – gilets, jackets and classic shirts – along with TuffStuff workwear, Amblers Safety boots, Muck Boots and Crocs.
