Is anyone interested in an International #39 Plow? They were commonly called Tumble Bugs. Feel free to check out www.Auctiontime.com item #5132. It is located in Iowa. I do not have a dog in this fight.

These are certainly interesting plows - I have one and it gets a lot of attention when I demonstrate it at our local show. The advertisement refers to it being "rare" and "hard to find" which in many places would be true. However, in irrigated regions, such as where mine came from in SE Colorado, these plows are very common and readily available at low prices.

Brendon, Is there somewhere to find a supply of coulter and jointer parts for these plows? It would be nice to find all parts for my #39. The right hand parts are more readily available but would like to find some left hand parts to complete my restoration.

That is a two bottom that rotates forward and downward to reverse/switch from right hand bottoms to left hand bottoms. It has about a 2 inch shaft that it rotates forward on.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
