Harry,

Any chance you would consider an optional piece of flat bar stock welded between the sides of your Quick On Bucket Connector for the mounting of say one of Ken's bolt on hooks or clevis mounts?
It doesn't seem like much of an extra head ache and would be a great place for it.
That way the hook stays on machine and also the bucket can be removed and backhoe used like a small knuckle boom for picking.

I run big iron for a living and we always use the provided ring that is on the quick coupler.
It allows you to remove the bucket and still be able to set manholes, pumps, pipe or whatever. It is also because the ring on the coupler is solidly mounted to stick by the pins. Unlike the ring on bucket that is now relying on the quick attachment points of the coupler.

I'll buy one instantly I promise. :laugh:

Me too! I'm ready to order the Connector now but would much prefer one with a mod like above.

Sorry guys. There isn't enough clearance to add the hook. It would interfere with the bucket curl linkage or attachment.
Working within the space constraints is just one of the challenges of building parts for smaller machines.

Thanks for looking at the possibility.

I have received my BH Quick Attach. It works great and saves a lot of time and struggle in swapping buckets. When doing stumping I change from bucket to ripper tooth several times and the BHQA makes swapping a breeze!

Like all your products, the BHQA and the Trenching Bucket are top notch tools.

This is exactly why I want one on my 46 BH, just have to wait for R&D and a compatible adapter to come to market from BXPANDED!
