I got the choremaster running the other day, although not with the correct engine, and had to try it out tonight. The only thing is I don't have dry enough dirt to play in. I said the heck with it and played in the garden (mud pit) a little. They are a handy little thing, but hard to use one handed.

Wanted to use the original engine but to many parts were missing to get it going again. I had a 3hp briggs sitting on the shelf for a coulpe of years and decided to throw it on.

I finally think the snow is done here they're talking 70s for the weekend. Can't wait for it to dry up so I can get out "the toys" and play around a bit in the garden.

Never seen one of those. My wife has one that's a push version with giant wheel out front. We too have snow in the woods still in spots and are hoping for Spring to come. Thanks for posting pics.

That did a great job! Congrats on getting it running! :thumbs:

 

What size Clinton was on that a 700 series? And what all are you missing to get it running?

Hi Nate, great work - the bed looks really good!

 

Looks like you have a turfy soil in Minnesota!

Glad you got to try it out even though a little wet , ok a lot wet lol   That should be nice going through the rows , I have a high wheel culitivator that I adapted a beet sweep to for getting close to the beans and peas ( gets under the vines )  that you might be able to do to yours

If you want the proper engine, check this out.  The owner claims it is a Briggs model N, But you never know ...  It looks similar to some of the bits in your photos.

When I got the engine it was in pieces and after looking at it lots of little things were missing.Linkage rods, points cover, and part of the carb. Not to mention one of the valves is stuck. It'll sit on the someday shelf for now.

 

It is a 700 series Clinton.

Nate, I've got a 705 Clinton if you need it and want to make the Choremaster original.  Even though it looks good "as is!"

 

Couldn't one come with a Briggs, anyway?

That style is for the newer Power Hos. Out the tractors I brought back from Indiana there was one like I needed on one. But still would like to find another one for running attachments on a couple tractors at once.

If it would've come with a briggs it would've been a cast iron block like a "N". Not positive if they came with briggs engine on them or not.
