I'm getting a 2210. It seems like I read that some of you recommend that it is handy to have a chain hook welded onto the bucket for lifting, etc. (someone even had a photo of this). I can't seem to find that discussion again. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any advice on putting on a hook or two.

yes, hooks on your loader are real nice and handy.I welded a 3 sixteenth inch angle across top of loader then welded hooks to it. the angle also keeps you from bending the top edge of loader when pushing brush and things. pic 20 shows it somewhat fair.

Hi, bmeyer. There are a couple of pics of my favorite style of hook installation in my profile pics. I had my dealer do the work before delivery. The gusset makes for a very solid point from which to lift. I agree that locating the hooks at the ends of the lift arms makes the most sense for balance and weight distribution. You could add a third slip hook in the middle to use for stablizing loads or as a single lift point for lighter lifting and transport. Regards, Pete

BIGPETE,,I didnt say at the end of the loader arm,,I said on the top edge of the bucket,,close to where the loader arm connects,,I think you would lose the temper of the loader if you welded to the arms,,be sure if you do put a center hook on, it is to only balance a load , otherwise it will "tweek" (bend) your bucket

You're likely aware of the difference between slip and grab hooks. Some people do use slip hooks on loaders but I think grab hooks are more common.

For securing bulky loads onto a loader bucket (or to a trailer bed for that matter) load binders are useful. Without binders it is nearly impossible to get enough slack out of a chain for the load to be really secure. Often a load shifts a bit during transit and the chain can slack even more.

I like the BIGPETE set up. Transfers the load directly to where it belongs without stressing the bucket. That is a nice set-up. I assume you rig between both hooks with a balancer to distrubute the load properly.

Hi, stevenc. I meant the same thing you did when I said "...at the end of the loader arms." That is, where the loader arm quick attach sleeves are welded. I would'nt weld anything to the ends of the arms either. Also, if you use a gusset or reinforce the entire top edge you can avoid buckling the top edge of the bucket under load. I guess if I could do it all again I would do a combination of drankin's setup and grab hooks near the loader arm brackets. I like the versatility of the hitch setup, too.
