Do you mean the Barford-Maskell Row Crop Tractor ?
Produced by Barfords of Belton Ltd part of the Aveling Barford Group
Looks a bit like the later Russell 3D and was powered by a Enfield 100 twin cylinder air cooled diesel
Steered by a tiller arrangement onto the two front wheels.

These row crop tractors were made by H Maskell & Son, Wilstead, Bedfordshire. A photo of one appears in the June 1961 Farm Implement & Machinery Review Magazine report of the Sugar Beet Spring Demonstration that had taken place that year at Cantley, Norwich. It was powered by an Enfield "100" 2 cylinder air cooled Diesel Engine.


By March 1963 the design has changed substantially, with more underbody clearance due to bridge style frame. It was being advertised by Barfords of Belton as the Barford-Maskell Row-Crop tractor, it cost 760 delivered, when a David Brown 2D cost 424 and a Fordson Super Major was 745 12s.
