    Default Weld on bucket hooks!

    In finally got around to welding on my bucket hooks. It's been a while since I've mig welded, so excuse the welds. Also the hooks have been in my basement, that's the reason for the rust. LUTT

    lutt,
    Looks like a pretty good job to me ! ! I used the same type hooks on my BX2350 loader, and there has never been a failure to date. I'm sure you will get LOTS of use from them.

    I think those welds look pretty good and suspect they'll stay put for a good long time.

    Grab a wire brush then a bit of sanding and paint if you want them to look factory installed!!

    Lutt, be careful with using only one hook. Applying weight to only one side of the bucket especially on uneven ground could tip the tractor on its side...Just a heads-up is all....
