Turner 'Yeoman of England' agricultural tractor on pneumatic tyres with a 40 hp V-4 overhead valve diesel, manufactured by Turner Manufacturing Co Ltd, at the Wulfrana Works, Wolverhampton. This was an attempt by a British manufacturer to produce an all new diesel tractor in the up and coming market for such machines. Sadly the tractor was flawed and reliability problems killed it off despite its good points. It was fitted with with power take-off and three-point hydraulic linkage.
