It's a Scheuch-Schlepper, designed by Rudolf and Eugen Scheuch initially as an agricultural tractor, then as a more conventional four-wheel design, used as a bomb-cart tractor ('Bombentransporter').

Also comes with a third wheel to fit the rear for towing other aircraft the track unit also had a wheeled version that used large inflatable bags to support the lower wings. Odd there isnt more about this little truck

Just noticed if you go to the link on the last post it shows the inflatable one
