I am in the process of doing a little horse trading. Does anyone know anything about a Chore Master tractor? The current owner took it apart 10 yrs ago and it's been sandblasted, but never painted. It's all in boxes on some shelves. He thought he remembered the original handles were wooden... There are a set with it... Only pics I can find online are with pipe handles, the drive assembly looks just like this picture.

Thanks in advance -Alan

Alan,
Dad has a few Choremasters, all his have the pipe handles and some implements, so I say you should pick it up, easy to work on. Generally the bearing all NEED to be replaced and that means total teardown, and it sounds like you are already there. Hope it helps.

I agree that the handles were pipe. One of the problems was the big drive gear wearing out. Another problem is the ones that take a 7 inch tire. Those are expensive! It originally had a Clinton engine. They had a nametag that said Choremaster on it.

was never offered with wood handles, i have the choremaster's brother the choremaster's roto spader sold by david bradley, some of the components are interchangeable like the handles and such, the tiller was made with the same worm gear type drive and the frame was casted in iron instead of aluminum.
the wheel rim is a split type and can be a pain to re-seat the bead on the tire so a tube is good, choremasters only had clinton engines and the fuel tank was mounted differently on the lator ones, bearings can be had and were not special, double belt pully centrifugal clutch can also be had but is expensive, look at mini bike websites for it, everything stated in the above posts is right on.

Maybe he has the right handles for it somewhere, I don't know. The cultivator pieces all look to be there, the clutch is on the engine, and the gas tank is with it. I think this will be in the registry by next weekend. Thanks guys.

Any idea what this would be worth if I wasn't trading "stuff I don't need" for it?

Thanks for the info guys. The one I'm looking at has the round tank mounted to the engine. It had a stamping of b 30 or 30B on the block.

Unfortunately, I wouldn't know one of those from Mel Tillis. :D

I hope to get it home this next weekend. Pics will be taken. I'm going to ask a lot of questions when I put this kit together. Thanks guys!
