Q. How do I raise the roof?

A. The roof folds manually and is raised manually via a single crank. The roof lift mechanism is manual and does not require outside or onboard power to be deployed.

Q. Does the roof cover the entire stage floor and the stage lights?

A. Yes. The roof covers the entire main floor plus an additional one-foot front and one-foot rear. This extra roof coverage allows all lighting to be covered by the roof.

For example, a 32 ft x 24 ft. performance area can be achieved by adding stage extensions completely around the stage.

Q. How about maintenance costs?

A. This stage is all mechanically operated with no dependence on motors, pumps, hoses and hydraulics, saving you time and money on costly repairs.

    Your product exceeded my expectations. I was amazed at the engineering, the welds and the detail to workmanship. You have developed portable stage production to a work of art and delivered a product I would be proud to place my signature upon.

    The Marshall Austin MAP24 mobile stage is the best investment we ever made. Having the MAP24 gives us a huge marketing advantage. If other Anheuser Busch wholesalers don’t’ have one, they are crazy not to.

    Dereck Mendoza Sequoia Beverage Company Visalia CA

    I cannot recommend your product more highly. It’s only competitor costs over twice as much to rent and requires nearly 30 stagehand hours to build and strike. When they both are done, there is little to tell them apart. In fact, your banner package set-up gives your stage a finished look and feel that many larger, more complex stages lack. Simple, cost effective, sturdy, and endlessly sponsor dressable. It is an amazing product!

    Having five diverse acts a week at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, we needed the ultimate value and flexibility in a portable stage. After much research, we found only one stage that had the size, durability, safety and convenience that we needed – for a very reasonable.

    Thank you for your great product. It always shines.

    The MAP24 stage has been used all summer for different events around town. It provided a great place for the acts to perform during our Friday night concert series. Local talent performed every Friday night to large crowds. Each time the performers commented on how solid and safe the stage is.

    Bill Wallace City of Point Pleasant WV

    Three years ago we had an opportunity to invest in purchasing a mobile stage from Marshall Austin which has been a huge part of our success. The stage has been used for community performances, movies in the park, teen movie nights at the local high school, graduation ceremonies etc. The stage has proven to be a reliable, valuable addition to the Community Services Department.

    Maria Billingsley City of Maricopa AZ

    We are loving our Marshall Austin Stage. We just finished having a University Day Event and the stage was front and center, the focal point.

    Thanks again for a perfect score!
