    I have two. Hooks on top with eyes on the bottom. They are in line with the hydraulic cylinders for max leverage. Having a third in the center might be nice.

    I initially went with three hooks but found I didn't use the center hook very often. I later removed the center hook and replaced it with Ken's 2" receiver hitch. However, I do have the clevis mounts at all three positions inside the bucket under each hook and find I use the center clevis a lot.

    My current configuration has proven to be just about perfect for any lifting / pulling / towing task that arises.

    That's really what sparked my interest I originally have been thinking 2 along with the clevis but read about putting a 3rd in the middle. So I thought I'd ask those that have already spent the $$ I'd like to do it right the first time through...

    If you have the H120 like I do make sure you buy your clevis from Ken. I bought Tractor Supply versions and had to do a lot of grinding so they would fit.
