    I put slip hook in the center of mine and then secure to either side. But I think you did a great job.

    I have a center D ring on the top of my bucket. I find I use it more than the other lift points.

    Good looking job. Looks OEM.

    This is why I joined TBN. Thanks for the Pictures, so now I know what I want to do to my buckets. And how to strengthen the top lip of the Bucket. Great Job

    Very nice job, I may have one of my sons do some of those mods on the bucket of our M8540 this summer. It looks like a professional job.

    Well done

    The shackle mount in the center looks like a great anchor point for a boom pole. Pin the end to that point, and have two support pole legs that rest in the bucket corners and support the boom pole.

    I rember when my tractor looked new, 13 years ago.
