TURNER WINCH FOR SALE ON EBAY
The winch, as featured in the picture has just come up for sale on eBay (13th November 2017). It is an FV1600 as originally supplied for fitting to the Humber so isn't actually a Land-Rover unit.
For sale: - Turner “Yeoman of England” Mk2 tractor serial number 315 built in June 1950
The vendor of this tractor lives in Northern Italy but is willing to include delivery to the UK in the sale price.
The tractor is described as being in great mechanical condition as it has done little work during it's lifetime. It was originally sold for use on a threshing mill but was replaced with a Nuffield tractor. There is little wear on the platform, pedals and hitch. It starts easily and the brakes, clutch and gearbox are all in full working order. It is fitted with the PTO & belt pulley unit and a basic drawbar. It has its original engine.
It is understood that the normal Turner colours were replaced by the single shade of blue as can be seen in the photographs at the point of sale. The vendor's father bought the tractor from the original purchaser in the 1980’s.
The Turner tractors were imported into Italy by Selene who are better known for their 4WD conversions of various makes of British built tractors. The sales agent was a Nuffield dealer and eight Turners were sold into the Piedmont region if Italy. The status of four of those is unknown. One has already been imported into the UK possibly around 2006 but its current ownership details are unknown. One was exported to a dealer in the Netherlands and has been sold on with no further details available. One is retained in a private collection in Italy.
Could anyone interested in purchasing this tractor please get in touch via the email link on Home Page of this web site.
Please note the vehicle is to be sold without the Italian registration and plate.

I've been contacted by the son of former Turner employee who may have some photo's and also an Italian tractor collector in the last 48hrs (21st October 2017). More in due course.
A Mk2B Turner Yeoman was sold today (21st July 2017) at a displenishment sale outside Insch, Aberdeenshire. The actual running condition was unknown (the buyer has since advised that the engine did run but at a very high speed) and it was fitted with a front loader.
Despite taking several pictures they were all close-up detail type so the only overview I have was one from the rear but courtesy of Larry Hopkins I also have the one from the front.
