 B7800 bucket hooks

Hopefully I just purchased the tractor I'll be keeping awhile. Thanks, I'm pretty anxious to see what she'll do. The dealer just put on the loader and I asked about putting hooks on the bucket for lifting stumps or anything else by chain and noticed the metal near the top of the loader bucket is rather thin and would probably need some plate steel to put on the base of the hooks to keep the bucket from tweaking. I'm leary about taking a grinder to the new paint before I even drive her for real. Any thoughts if it's needed and if so how much. Any other advice. This is my 3rd tractor but first under 50 years old. jp

You will find the hooks most useful.... I recommend you get the bracing and welding done.

The day you get a tractor delivered, take a picture. That is as good as it will ever look. The first bucket of dirt will start taking the paint off.

 B7800 bucket hooks

I have a 7800 with the 60" LD bucket. For lifting, I added a load bar that bolts along the lip of the bucket. See Pic 1. It's a piece of TS2-1/2x2-1/2x5/16. For lifting with chains, I use the lifting eye in the center of the bar. The bar (tube) also serves as a slide bar for the forks, keeping most of the load from transfering to the cutting edge. There just isn't enough meat it those light duty buckets for lifting hooks.

Hooks are a must. They are as handy as any attachment you can have.

The bar and forks are homemade. If you're interested, I suppose they could be aftermarket, Laughing out loud.

The bar was easy to fabricate, the forks were a little more complicated.

 B7800 bucket hooks

I've got a toothbar ordered that bolts on to the sides, should I drill or weld onto that or just weld some plate to the top of the bucket (past the rolled edge). I want to do it right the first time. jp

I'm not a fan of welding to the bucket itself. Unless you know the type of steel used, it isn't possible to have a proper weld procedure. I drilled two 11/16" holes through the cutting edge to bolt the load bar to. The forks slide along the load bar for adjusting the width. Depending on where your tooth bar bolts, you may be able to use them. The buchet is obviously strongest at thye coners where the opposing plates offer stiffening, but the sides of the bucket are too thin for any bolt bearing capacity. I chose to bolt through the cutting edge based on it's thickness and proximity to a stiffened edge.
