I picked one up today, gave him half what he wanted. This is a pic of one in similar shape, my camera is dead at the moment.

 

Runs, deck is rusted out, but all cables work, has original Swedish tires on it. 12 hp techumseh, 6 speed peerless,

 

Looking for ideas for a front mount attachment.

Runs off a center belt from a pulley at the pivot point.

Never heard of them.  Were they imported one at a time or did they have a North American dealer network?

I'm not sure yet, the Stiga brand is all over Europe. But they have shown up in Austalia and New Zealand. They show up sometimes in the States, and more in Eastern Canada.

 

They were built in Sweden, by Stiga, and were sold under the Noma brand in Canada, they were also sold under the Bolens brand in the US.

Up here Noma was taken over by MTD.

Got it running not too bad, float needle is still leaking a bit, but it starts first pull, and idles OK, also found a guy not too far away that has a parts beast.

It's unusually agile, and turns in a 12" radius, in high gear an unsuspecting driver could roll it, or get tossed off.

This thing is built a bit different than North American equipment.

All controls use push/pull cables except the brakes.
It has very few little mechanical linkages underneath. only the clutch and pto clutch
It has separate wheel brakes connected to the same pedal. Necessary since a 1 wheel brake or trans brake would make it swing when applied.

Each brake assembly is separate from the axle, and has a brake drum, axle bearings, and hub all in one piece. The axle connects to the hub assemble with a single bolt through the axle. The assemblies are bolted to the frame itself with 2 bolts. The axle/differential floats between the two rear brake/hub units.

The deck lift is a simple lever on the front of the chassis.

Separate clutch and brake pedals take a little getting used to as well as the steering. Unlike a standard front steer tractor setup, the articulated will not try to straighten itself out.

Went to a gt show today, first ever for the area.
nothing but a sea of green, MF made a nice diversion. all 3 tractors. there was a cute little rer from the 50s with nice paint.

ran in to one of the sponsors, runs a local small engine shop, and has several boneyards scattered around the county.

I chatted a bit with him, and went to look at a Bolens estate keeper ( articulated)with a blown motor. I asked what he wanted,
600 bucks for a mower deck 1000 for the tractor with deck , I don't think so.

I'll build my own setup
