Hi Guys -
Starting to think Spring projects, and one disappointment I have with my 2038R is the 57HD bucket I ordered. The loops just aren't that useful and I would rather have my Ken's bolt on hooks back.
Has anyone tried to modify this bucket to remove the loops and put hooks in their place? I don't think it would be terribly difficult, just grind the welds on the loops off and they should come off? Then buy some weld on hooks from Ken and weld in the same place?
I've also considered just welding a set of hooks to the top of the loops, but I'm not sure about that plan.
In my opinion, the 57HD bucket is a waste of money. The loops are practically useless (compared to hooks) and the only other difference is the extra piece of steel on the side edges.
Plan B: Anyone in the NW Indiana area want to trade a 57HD bucket for a standard 57 bucket?
