    Nice job-can you tell me why you welded the D-rings facing the sides of the bucket and not to the front/rear of the bucket? This is just an "ask" as I have no opinion.
    Let your tools do the work.

    Put rings that way so they did not flop back and forth when dumping load. Also if what to use ratchet traps for strapping an item bigger than the bucket it would be easier to use.
    You can hang deer spreader on each side of the bucket.

    bolt on hooks.... less than $20. not exactly the same as grab hooks but if your looking to pinch a penny.... they will work just fine. (infact a number of members have them bolted to there bucket.

    You spent 13k on a tractor and the dealer won't weld them on for free?

    Dealer won't do it. Didn't want the liability on their hands. Believe me I tried.

    I think you answered your own question when you named this thread?- Is the price worth it?- >No<

    No one gets rich in the tractor accessory market. Everyone has different production costs, etc. From all appearances Ken's product appears to be a good value. Obviously others have a contrary opinion to yours but thankfully America is still the place we can voice our opinions freely. How much longer is another question...................
