 Hooks on bucket

My dealer want to know where I want (or if I want) a couple hooks welded to the top of the bucket on my 16LA loader for my TC40. Any suggestions on how many hooks to have, and if so where to have them welded on?

 Hooks on bucket

I had two welded on, one right in front of each loader arm. If you have a heavy duty bucket you may not need additional support, but ask your dealer what they recommend. The best jobs have extra support around the hooks to prevent the bucket from bending under heavy loads.

 Hooks on bucket

I've had hooks welded on buckets for 4 different CUT's. All have been attached on the bucket upper lip in front of the arm attachment. All buckets were standard, not the HD, from JD. Lifted/pulled/leveraged a lot of loads and never had any affect on the bucket. In fact, some jobs were so overmatched for the tractors that I was concerned the FEL was going to be pulled off the mounting posts, but the hooks and their mounts never suffered any damage.
Also, my suggestion is to use 5/16" clevis hooks. This size will grab 1/4" - 3/8" chain. You don't need larger chain with a CUT. Use a grinder to flatten the back side of the hook and the loop for good weld sites. Mighty handy.

 Hooks on bucket

I have 2 larger slip hooks, one in front of each loader arm. And a 3/8 grab hood welded in the center of the bucket.
This setup works real well for me.

 Hooks on bucket

I had originally thought to wait and see where I want them and weld them on myself, then I said, " DAH!!" And told the dealer to the center. He suggested 2 infront of the loader arms like all of you have said. I will inform him to put 2 infront of the arms and I am considering anouther in the middle (sounds like a good idea for straight pulls with only one cable.
Thanks guys, just wanted to make sure.

 Hooks on bucket

I use the center hook quite often moving around implements, or loading them on the trailer.
I just butt the bucket against the the front of the implement, I have a short piece of chain with a grab hook,throw chain around implement top link pin,hook chain in center bucket hook,roll bucket blade against implement frame lift and go.estimated time- 30 seconds.
Bucket hooks, picture # 8 in my photos.

 Hooks on bucket

Timberridge, I too flattened the back of a pair of grab hooks, welded them to the upper corners of the bucket of my 430 Deere loader. Next day a neighbor stoped by asking why I did'nt buy the hooks that are made to weld on that have the back allready flat. My answer was where were you a week ago ? I did'nt know they were available. Live and learn I guess. Frank.

I would put 3 on. I have 3 and the center one I probably use more than the side ones.

I would go with 3. I only have 2 and I am afraid of spraining the loader arms by using one side picking up something heavy. I'm thinking about having a center one put on for picking up rocks and what not.

A center hook has better balance but make sure the bucket is strengthened enough. There are thousands of buckets out there with the tops bent down that had hooks were welded in the center. Hooks welded over the lift arms should be stronger because of the bucket bracing.
