    Bolt on Hooks or welded on Hooks?

    Getting real close to signing the papers for the 1025R. It's $50 per hook welded at the dealer and painted.

    So which do you guys $ gals prefer? Welded or bolted?

    That's more of a personal preference thing. The bolted on ones are plenty strong enough you'll never have an issue with them. The welded on ones are just more permanent.

    Yeah - the permanent thing has me wondering. Ever had a reason to take them off?

    Is this a Set-Up question??? Obviously you'll find a lot of us use Kenny's Bolt On hooks! Click the Vendor tab! High Quality and quick shipment and movable if need be! Ken's a long time Administrator of this group and one of the Founding Fathers of it predessors! You won't be disappointed....... ~Scotty

    The bolt-on hooks Kenny sells are just super easy to install and cheaper than what your dealer quoted to weld hooks on.

    I got my weld-on hooks from Kenny.

    Mine are welded to my bucket, I've never felt a need to removed them.

    That said, if you go with Kenny's bolt on hooks you can also install the bolt on shackle/ clevis mounts on the inside of the bucket as well if you wanted them.

    Either would work fine, but if the dealer wanted $50 per hook to install them I would certainly go for the bolt on.

    Your mileage may vary.

    I really like that 3-hook setup Diesel.
