 Bent Front End Loader From Bucket Hooks

i have a jd790 with 419fel and my son welded hooks on the top of the fel. we placed one in line with the arms on each
side. we have bent both sides. my friend at the dealer said we should have re-inforced the top. should we put a pipe under the lip of the fel or cut off the hooks and put angle iron on top of the fel then replace the hooks? which way is best? thanks.

Well the good news is your son can make a solid weld. I'm not sure exactlly how you mean fixing it but welding something round,like the side of a round pipe,to something flat,is not maybe the best way,angle all the way across,would probably be best. Richard

 Bent Front End Loader From Bucket Hooks

Somewhere in the archives is a description of how it was done--with angle iron I think. There even may be pictures.

I don't need my loader for heavy lifting since I got a 3ph forklift. Before the forklift I used to run chain through the support pipe between the arms. That also gives the loader a bit more capacity since the load is further back on the arms. The downside is that the load also is closer to the tractor and it won't work for wide loads. Long loads have to be secured from two points to keep it from swinging and bashing into the tractor. Due to limitations of the pipe idea I'd probably reinforce my bucket and install hooks if I didn't have the forklift.

 Bent Front End Loader From Bucket Hooks

I welded a piece of 3/16 angle iron across the top of my 419 loader,really made it strong. I bent my top lip of bucket by moving huge brush piles along my creek dozer style. after straighting and welding in angle, haven't had a problem since. also have moved heavy loads with loader hooks with no bending or flexing. I think it's a must for doing that type of work with your bucket.

I also have the bucket hooks welded inline with the arms by the dealer but have had no problems. Do you guys have the 61" HD buckets? I have yanked hard too the point of almost tipping the tractor without a bend. At first I worried, should I start again? Smile

Mine is the HD 61 inch, I think I was just overworking it when I bent mine. bend was minor, but now there no worry of bending any more. I tend to work my tractor harder than most would. but the little deere just keeps on going strong!

 Bent Front End Loader From Bucket Hooks

On my first 410 loader bucket I put the angle inside the bucket where it wouldn't show.

I got a piece of 3/16 or 1/4 angle that was as wide as the flat on the top of the bucket and mounted it with grade 5, half inch bolts about every 6 or 8 inches.

Then I drilled through the whole thing to mount hooks.

Another thing I am trying on my newest loader is to mount forged eye bolts to the top of the bucket and put the hooks on the eye bolts. Under really heavy loads the eye bolts will swivel to align themselves with the load forces.

My newest bucket is shown in my pics, #2, #3 and #4.

 Bent Front End Loader From Bucket Hooks

Hi, Pawhill. Lots of good ways to do this, as others have mentioned. Pictures 5, 6, and 7 in my profile show how my dealer's top welder did the hooks for my smaller 210 bucket. Those pics were taken on delivery day, so they are no quite that shiny. I'm having the same guy do the 53" bucket coming in with my 4110. I'm also having him just add a third reinforcement plate in the center even though I'm only putting two grab hooks on the bucket at the ends where the loader arm brackets are. That way if I ever add any other hooks or contraptions, the beef is built in. Pete

That certainly looks like it would work just fine. I gotta learn to weld.

I was impressed with this shop tech's ingenuity. Before I even paid the $50 materials and labor invoice for the hooks, I bought him and the rest of the shop guys a 12-pack for the good work. Since I have no welding skills or equipment of my own, I want to stay on the good side of anyone with skill and talent in this area. Who knows what I'm going to bust up or need modified. Pete
