Default Kirby Lauson, shearing plant info wanted

Just found this little Kirby Lauson Shearing plant on one of our farms.

All I know about it is that it is 2.5 hp Kirby Lauson engine on a shearing plant made by Sunbeam in Australia.

Just after some info.

How high is that machine,as an old shearer with a stuffed back it looks to me like it is too low.Maybe it is designed to sit on a bench or in the back of a ute.Good find never seen one like that,Norm
