Floyd county museum has re prints of them St. Charles Iowa. Just need to know your model of tumble bug. If is a TK or TW the TK has steel wheels and round tube type axle housings where the TW is rubber tired and uses square tubing. Also the is a little difference in the tongue as well.

I also have a 2-16 tumblebug plow I'm trying to identify. Mine has 6 hole 15" implement type rims. Do you have an idea what it might be? I'd like to find a manuel for it also.

Hello, Yes i was a little vague on the wheel I.D. as a give away. The TK pictured is yes on rubber as you can see and did come out that way but a little hard to date them as rubber was hard to get during WW2 This one could be a post or pre war plow TK model. Mine is on steel and has a tongue and axle housing tubes "round just like this one as well.

Pardon the pun but they are a trip at plowing shows and fun I got a story on one show.LOL

Kevin, Mine is a TK, it came on steel but I switched it to rubber like the one pictured, Charlie Doty had one on rubber to send to England, "I think", and he needed steel so we switched wheels.

Yeah I wasn't too clear on that post and hit send before I really read it. One thing about steel the tire won't go flat on less you drag it.

Hi Kevin, nice to see sombody who knows a bit about MM tumblebug ploughs. Over here in the county of Nottinghamshire I run a tractor club and we have a workig weekend every year. 3 years ago we featured tumblebug ploughs. One MM pulled by a ZTU, one MM pulled by a UK built UDS one MM pulled by a UK built Turner tractor, one IH tumblebug pulled by a Fordson E27N tractor on Roadless halftracks and finally a Case tumblebug pulled by a Case LA tractor. All 5 tumblebug ploughs had been imported into the UK in the last few years as none were brought here when they were new. MJ
