    Questions about installing bucket hooks on a 3520 with JD heavy duty bucket

    I need to install bucket hooks on my 3520.

    *1, 2 or 3 hooks?
    I have the HD JD bucket. Is this HD bucket strong to use a center hook, only?

    *With or without the clevis mount bolted underneath?
    What is the clevis mount used for?

    *Are bolt-on hooks a good idea/ weld on any advantage?

    Brook, please read this from the FAQ page on the website:

    Q: What if the top of my bucket is double-walled?
    A #1: Some heavy duty buckets have a double wall construction on the top, and bolting hooks to them could damage the bucket by compressing the wall’s together, and you would not be able to properly torque the bolts. If you have this type of bucket construction, then these hooks may not be the best option and you should consider having the hooks welded on.

    In summery, KBOGH/BoltOnHooks LLC does not recommend or endorse the use of the bolt on products for these heavy duty, double walled style buckets.
    A #2: One customer, Bob from IN recently did an install on his 3320/300cx/HD Bucket with custom made spacers. You can read the details here on the GreenTractorTalk forum. Bob knew the potential issues and assumed all responsibly in this application. We cannot offer this solution due to the difference's in the buckets.
