You have the 8008 version with the front frame. Kubota and cat/neuson have a similar thing with their front frames. And they are naff to say the least.

My 8010 folds down to just a smidge above seat level and the e10 lower still. Thing is the jcb 8010 can be took off totally in seconds but the e10 can't and that means it sticks out over the back end when moving about.

yes front frame ,the ones on the back would fold right down .to take this front one off theres 6 m8 or m10 allen head bolts and you also loose the foot pegs ,typical jewson machine no bolts in the back of the hinge to stop it folding if it did turn over and lights not working

Yes those front frames aren't worth a you know what

Jewson machines well they aren't bad compared to some local hire firms round here

My local Jewsons just got a brand new batch of machines and dumpers. Handy for spares if I ever need any for my fleet
Seriously though I never use Jewsons for hire. There's a much better and cheaper local company that I use. The E10 is the micro of the moment, servo controls and a proper folding cage do make it better than the rest. Kubota have some catching up to do in that respect.
