An evolutionary dead end! This Turner Yeoman of England tractor belongs to Edwin Hughes of North Wales. Yeoman of England diesel tractors made their debut in 1949, and whilst these Wolverhampton-built tractors did have some features that were ahead of their time, they were found to be poor starters. Turner simply couldn’t compete with the big guns, and production ceased in 1957, making this a rare and very sought-after tractor, despite its reputation as a rather unreliable machine.
