    Front end loader hooks or tie downs

    Hey guys
    I noticed some of you have hooks or tie downs on the top part of the front end loader. This seems like it would come in very handy.
    Please post your pics of what you got and some links to buy. I am not interested in welding them on. Are most of you just drilling through and bolting them on?

    Thanks in advance.

    I made mine. It's easy if you have a welder.

    I put the same on my in-laws 4520 bucket, with the center being the Hook/Clevis combo. I haven't decided if I'll do bolt on or weld on for the bucket on my NH, but one way or another it's going to have some of KennyD's hooks on it!

    OK, I get the concept of the hooks, great way to attach a log chain. But when I sit down and try to come up with log chain use applications, my list becomes really really short, so short it turns into a blank piece of paper. I have to be missing something. What am I missing?

    Initially I installed three of Ken's hooks across the top of my bucket with a clevis mount under each one. However, I found that I never used the center hook. In fact, I use the clevis tie points 5X as much as the hooks. That's because I use tie-down straps a lot for securing things.

    I eventually removed the center hook and replaced it with one of Ken's 2" receiver hitches. I now have what is for me the ultimate configuration. I can use virtually any type of strap, chain, rope, etc. With the Ball-Dog in the receiver hitch it essentially turns it into another shackle or hook.

    More recently I extended the capabilities even further by using a Wilton ATV vise in the 2" receiver. I use this now for securing things and sharpening/cleaning my mower blades. It gives me a third hand on the bucket.

    If you can attach a chain or strap you can lift / pull it. Chain, rope, oblong rings, tie-down straps, etc.

    I don't lift anything by hand anymore if it can have a strap connected to it. Generator, mower deck, lumber, etc. I probably use chains the least as I prefer the oblong ring straps and tie-down mainly because it's too easy to mar things with a chain.

    The straps and chains also work for keeping oversized objects from falling out of the bucket.

    I did the weld on clevis mounts on my 5055E, I had grab links welded on to my Oliver 1650 and really liked those. I still use the grab links with chain on my clevis, now.

    ^^^ This right here!

    If you can attach a chain or strap to something you can lift it. Need to put something into the back of a pickup? Move your attachments around your property?

    I try to keep a lot of things on pallets so I can move them with my pallet forks but sometimes it's just easier to leave the bucket on and use a strap or chain to pick the thing up and move it.
