Recognize This Machine?

Garden tractor 

A mate of mine found this piece of machinery and I have been trying to positively identify it. The differential indicates that it is a powered machine. From the general appearance, it appears to be an early garden tractor. In research I have done, the closest thing I have found is a Rede, an early version with multi-spoked wheels, but this is not positive. Would any Farm Collector readers be able to identify this piece? Very few of these types of machines were used in Australia and there is little knowledge about them.
