:greentractorride: How many Kens Bolt On Grab Hooks do you have and do you want more for the same bucket?? I am looking at putting some on hopefully this winter but want to make sure I get the right quantity.

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.

Perfect.... Whatever I do end up with it will have the clevis as well......

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.

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.

Thanks for the in sight Eric....I will definitely buy them from KBOH.... I would rather it fit right from the start, and everything I have read about KBOH has been fantastic. Not a single negative comment and everyone seems to love the hooks and clevis.

3 may not be enough

You might want to consider more than 3. I've been thinking about adding a few to a box blade for chain storage, pulling (light) objects without dropping the blade, holding stuff on the blade etc.

I'm not sure you can ever have too many attachment points. :gizmo:

Ditto on this configuration as I realized a third kook in the center could bow the bucket if I lifted too much. I do think I'll add a clevis also to the center inside the bucket. The receiver in the center is the best for the trash and recycle bin moves to/from the street.

Treefarmer- "I've been thinking about adding a few to a box blade for chain storage, pulling (light) objects without dropping the blade, holding stuff on the blade etc." Thought of this myself so if you do post some pictures. I do carry a choker for convenience and additional weight on the BB now, hooks would be better than wrapping.
