But with those holes in place, when I drilled with the 1/2 bit, it just cut the weld out of its way. Take your time drilling, and dont forget to use coolant or oil on your bit.


    Honestly, I would have bought weld on hooks, if I didnt want to fight with fixing the paint after welding them on my brand new bucket
    Thanks again! Man, that Ken is awesome!! Ordered my hooks this morning and he already has shipped them out. I like dealing with people like that!! Even sent a personal note letting me know they were enroute..

    Where did you get the receiver hitch? I'd like to offer them as well if I could.

    Thanks, I know they used to sell them but I can't find them any longer on the website. I have a note to my supplier to see what they can do.

    Here is the receiver I bought...

    3500 Lb. Step Bumper Receiver

    They also have this one, which has a wider mounting plate (may be better for bigger tractors)

    5000 Lb. Step Bumper Receiver

    I also plan to pick one of these up on my next visit to keep in it I think...

    D-Ring Receiver Hitch


    Kenny, the trick to finding them is to type 'receiver' into the search...

    I looked at all the receiver tubes and HF does have just a plain 12" long tube with nothing on it other than the little reinforcement ring at the end but at $13 sounds like a fellow could do better just buying the stock tubing and making them himself if in the market to sell them. I don't have a clue as to how much 2x2x1/4 tubing cost per foot though, and then you have to cut to length, cut the 2.5 tubing for the reinforcement at the end, drill the hole for the pin. Maybe $13 isn't too bad after all.
    It looks like the 3500# would fit nicely on a FEL and plenty strong for a CUT.
