Newman was a brand of compact tractor built in 1948 after the second world war in Grantham Lincolnshire by Newman Industries Ltd. They were built like several other brands as a cheap tractor for small holding to increase food production and to diversify engineering capacity with the end of war related works.
The tractor was a simple design with a C channel chassis ans a single cylinder engine. The machine was sophisticated in that it had adjustable wheel track for row crop work and a good ground clearance compared to early Ferguson and Fordson models. The tractors were only built for a few years.
(Do you know anything of the spec ? )
A few examples exist but as they were not built in large numbers only the odd one appears at UK tractor rallies and working days, often in the Horticultural section.
