Are there any good alternatives to Ken’s Bolt-on hooks that any of you have experience with? I was planning on going with Ken’s, but they are out of stock until at least the beginning of Apri. I know that isn’t that far off, but that’s an estimated time to get back in stock and I have projects I would like to get done while I’m on vacation. So, any recommendations for alternatives or am I better off waiting for Ken to restock?

Thanks in advance!

Ken's are the only made in the USA option if that maters, they have the smallest laser cut plates that don't look like a chopsaw cut them and left the squared corners, the plating is beautiful, the hardware is high quality, the instructions are impeccable, the plates are flat and not warped like a potato chip, the welds are beautiful and not ground on to try to make them look good, and he's a really nice guy (LOL).

Its worth the wait plus you can bundle other things that you will need.
handles, steps, and diff lock pedal are absolutely worth getting and mandatory in my personal opinion.

One suggestion if you want our hooks, you can buy the Bolt-On clevis mounts/Pad Eyes now and put them on top, then at a later date you can get the hooks and make your own "combos".

Nope. They (and you) are much better even than that!

Ken’s, they’re like an EA Wicked Grapple, worth the wait. Plus, you’re supporting a small business and not Amazon.

Are there any clearance issues with the steps and the load-and-go brackets on a 60” deck?
Only with the really long cab step as far as i know. Some cut a notch for clearance on those.
Tractor Tim has LnG with steps on his machine. Many others do as well.

Please read the about/contact us page. we are at least an hour off of 81, probably closer to 1.5 hours some days.

Picked them up from the powder coaters today, they will be back on the website shortly. The handle are at Line-X, but now there is a national chemical shortage so no telling when they will be coated.

This year is shaping up to be just as crazy as 2020 so far.

Hmmmm I wasn't all that far from you when I picked up my used x738 from Gladhill Tractor. They have a beautiful warehouse building full of what most would call a "Deere Museum".
