    Placement of Ken's Hooks

    So I just received my hooks from Kenny and they are great! They are currently drying after being hit with a coat of JD green paint and i got to thinking about placement of the hooks. I see that most folks set them on the top of their buckets (most of the photos show this). Doesn't this place alot of stress on the bolt that holds the hooks to the bucket?

    I have a x728 with a 45 loader and was thinking of placing them inside the bucket, on the underside of the "top" of the bucket to eliminate stress on the bolt.

    What do you guys think?

    with the grab hooks, they have to go on top to keep your chain or cable hooked when you roll your bucket up. IMO the best set up would be kens hooks on top with the clevis mounts on the bottom, then you would have the best of both worlds. hope this helps.

    The hardware thats included is 1/2" and Grade #8, your machine will never come close to "stressing" those. Maybe I don't quite understand what you are asking, but I can't see why the stress would be any less if they are mounted inside versus outside the top plate on the bucket.

    I can only imagine how complicated it would make hooking up the log chain if they were mounted inside the bucket.
