I saw this today.  Don't look like too much of it is left.

The front of the frame reminds me of a Page garden tractor.

Looks like a Mighty Mite to me, or perhaps an Ottawa Mule Team or a Jaques Frazer.  Is the front axle sticking out in front of the front of the frame?  If so, was it only the Ottawa Mule Team that did that on some of their tractors or did the other two do it as well?  Definitely from that family of tractors though.  I have a Mighty Mite (pictures are here somewhere).

It's shaped like a Shaw Du-all frame ?  

However the flat side of the channel is out on the Shaw and the rib side is out on this frame.

I was thinking Shaw, too.

The steering on the Shaw is not at the same angle as what we see in the other pics.  Gard'n Master maybe?

I think you are right on the Mighty Might.  

Did a search and came up with this.  Looks just like it to me.

Sorry, but I'm still 100% on the Mighty Mite/Ottawa Mule Team/Jaques Frazer train.  Here are some pictures of my Mighty Mite:

I just wonder if it's the Ottawa Mule Team version as it looks like the front axle is mounted in front of the nose of the frame, which I've seen on the Mule Teams but not on the other two.  It may just be my eyes and/or the camera though.  That part I'm not sure of.

the Ottawa mule  tractor   suggestion is probably a good one, as I have seen an Ottawa for sale on here a few years back.

Didn't we just have a history lesson on someone elses question stating that some frame got passed around to diff manufacturers and made into their brand for moment?  Think it's one of those. Seems that Frazor rototiller engine was in the one I"m thinking of. So, you could ALL be right in some way, ha!

After reviewing your pictures, I'm on the Mighty Mite band wagon too.  I agree.

The Frazer axle is under the frame same as the Jaques.

I originally thought the steering angles looked different but the more I look, the more I think it's the same, just a weird angle in the one picture.

Here's a little more of a square on side view.
