    Just ordered hooks, what paint and straps/chain to get?

    Just ordered two hooks for my 1026R/H120 FEL. I want to paint the hooks JD Green to match tractor, what paint is everyone using? I assume there is a tough, enamal, factory spay can available?

    also, regarding a chain and/or straps to use that will work well with these hooks, what size? I'm thinking of straps to use to life the 60D MMM deck as well as chain for logs/stumps, etc.

    Hooks

    Received my hooks a couple days ago and expecting delivery of my 1026R on the 22nd. Looking for advice for the chains too....looking for advice overall. Thanks.

    Your JD dealer will have JD Green spray paint cans. My Lowes had Rustoleum JD Green spray paint. I also bought at Lowes a chain with hooks that are sized to fit Ken's hooks. A strap with similar sized hook is also nice to have.

    Paint: I personally love the JD paint. While it is expensive, it really covers well and just has a better shine than the other stuff I have tried. But, these are hooks and will get all scratched up...

    Chain: Any 5/16" or 3/8" chain will work, but 3/8" is overkill, heavier, and it cost's more. I like to use G70 "transport" chain. TSC sells it by the foot but, lots of other places carry it as well-even Horrible Fright sells it.

    Straps: I have a new product that will be ready in about a week or two. It is for holding a Clevis/Shackle and will work very well for straps, slings and ropes.

    Thanks for the feedback. Should have the hooks today or tomorrow. Trying to get out to TSC to see what they have in a 5/16" chain and what in hooks that I can build myself. I saw online that TSC has some JD spray paint and I might check that out. Not sure when I can get to dealer and I'm sure they are going to get scratched quite a bit.

    I have this SpeeCo Drawbar Grab Hook which says on the SpeeCo website it will take 5/16" to 1/2" chain. If I have to buy my own hooks for the chain, which ones do you suggest to use for dragging logs, brush, etc?

    TSC will have generic 5/16" grab hooks like this:

    That you can add to a chain to make in any length you need. I thing I bought a 20' pre-made chain and cut it in half and added two of those to make two 10' sections.

    You can also put 2 of those hooks together with 3 links of chain to make a "double-ended" grab hook that's handy for shortening long sections of chain temporarily.
