I saved this from possibly being scraped, but do not have the room to give it a home.  I need all the room I have for my Rototiller collection.

 

Choremaster with incorrect B&S 2 1/4 hp engine.  Engine is not stuck.  Here is the info on the engine: 

Model 60331, Type 942053, code 5909250.  Three cultivators and one row furrower.  The furrower may not be original as it looks too new and light weight compared to the stoutly made cultivators.  Gearbox will need new bearings.  I did get it freed up, but the bearings on the worm shaft are rusty and rough.  I would like $45 for the lot. 
I could bring this to Rough & Tumble's August show for pickup.  Also could bring it to the Jacktown Show on July 19.

man that's cheap, I could use a good between the row machine here. Wish it would fit into a #10 envelope, maybe you'd have to use a couple.

I learned that production started in 1947 but don't know how long they were produced.  I believe most of them had Clinton engines on them.

I plan to attend the Jacktown Show July 19 and could bring the Choremaster along for pickup.

Also will be at Rought & Tumble for the duration of the August show and could bring it there for pickup.

I will get you some fresh pics today and put them on this evening when I get back on here. They will run but they have Briggs motors on them from that era. I don't have any attachments though. I wouldn't mind having a couple of the attachments my self.
