If You Have a Pin-On Style Bucket

KBOGH/BoltOnHooks LLC has developed a "bolt-on" solution for the Kubota pin-on buckets that have the turned up top lip that gets in the way of the regular Bolt-On Grab Hooks™ (BOGH's) or Bolt-On Clevis Mounts™ (BOCM's). Our solution is to weld a spacer to the bottom of a standard BOGH to allow the hook to clear the top lip. The spacer is placed against the lip to add more support to the hook, and a backing plate or a Bolt-On Clevis Mount™ (BOCM) is used inside the bucket as well for additional strength. These hooks are guaranteed to stay tight and secure under the most rigorous use, and will not come loose like other quick-on hooks can over time.

   

Some might ask "is this method strong enough?", well after extensive research, and hundreds thousands of these hooks in the field with zero negative feedback we have to say "Yes, absolutely!" Here are some pictures from Mike T. that shows what these hooks can handle, as well as his ingenious solution to storing chain and other accessories on his machine:

   
   

 

One issue we found while researching this project is that Kubota makes several different styles of buckets, all with varying angles, shapes, lip heights and lip depths. This makes it near impossible to make a "one hook fits all" solution. I went to a rather large dealer in the area and looked at 4 different tractors and found 3 different buckets between them. We have been compiling a spreadsheet for various models, but you will need to verify the correct lip height on your bucket before ordering, see below for more details.

We are offering these hooks in two different configurations, one with just a backing plate, and one with a BOCM (this option may require you to cut the excess threads off the bolts with a cutting wheel/angle grinder, we cannot do this for you).


•Some tools needed for a successful install:
->Drill
->Measuring tools
->Small round file or de-burring tool (Now Available from us!)
->3/8” drill bit
->1/2” drill bit* (Now Available from us!)
->Wrenches/Sockets, 3/4” size
* Or a “Unibit” capable of drilling a 1/2” hole.


*A $13.00 fee is added in the cart to all orders for USPS Priority Shipping in the United States.*

How to Measure Your Pin-On Bucket

Please follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper fitment of your hook(s) on a pin-on bucket, we show the process in the video linked above as well. The plate MUST clear the lip so the spacer can be placed against it to help support the hook. What we need is a small framing square/rafter square/combination square placed flat on the roof of the bucket up against the rear edge of the lip. Then, place a straight edge on top of the lip and read the height of the spacer required to the nearest 16th inch. You should order the next sized taller spacer for your bucket, see pictures below for more details. In this example, the middle bucket would need a 2-13/16" spacer, and the bucket on the right a 1-5/8" spacer. Also watch the video linked above for a few other tips on measuring and installation.

We currently stock these 6 sizes of spacers:
1-7/16", 1-5/8", 1-13/16", 2", 2-1/2", and 2-13/16"

   

 

 


If You Have a SSQA/Quick Attach Style Bucket

Some of the mid-sized and larger Kubota tractors use the optional Skid Steer Quick Attach (SSQA) carrier, also called the "2 Lever Quick Coupler" by Kubota on the front end loaders. If you have this style loader bucket, then no special hooks with welded spacers are needed-you can use the regular Bolt-On Grab Hooks™ or Bolt-On Clevis Mounts™ available from the Bolt On Products page.

Please scroll down to find your style bucket and read the information provided.



Square Back Quick Attach Bucket

This style bucket uses the regular Bolt-On Grab Hooks™ or Bolt-On Clevis Mounts™ available from the Bolt On Products page. Please take a look at these great pictures of Steve's "Square Back Quick Attach Bucket" (click to expand them to full size). The hooks are bolted to the large plate that runs across the top and helps make up the SSQA receiver. Because of the thickness of this top plate, and the limited room underneath the optional backing plates or larger USS washers (if sent) are not used in this application.




More Pictures:




Round Back Quick Attach Bucket

This style bucket uses the regular Bolt-On Grab Hooks™ or Bolt-On Clevis Mounts™ available from the Bolt On Products page. These pictures of Nick's "Round Back Quick Attach Bucket" (click to expand them to full size) show how/where they are installed. The optional backing plates or "combo" kits with Clevis Mounts™ (shown below) are recommended here for the added strength.





Square Back Quick Attach Heavy Duty Bucket


This style Heavy Duty Quick Attach Bucket used on some large machines also just uses the regular Bolt-On Grab Hooks™ or Bolt-On Clevis Mounts™ available from the Bolt On Products page. Because of the thickness of this mounting area, and the limited room underneath the optional backing plates or larger USS washers (if sent) are not used in this application. M1811 is one part number used for this style bucket, there may be more.

 
 
 




Sub-Compact Quick Attach Bucket

The new Kubota BX1880 / BX2380 / BX2680 / BX23S Sub-Compact models with the LA340 or LA344 loader also have a new style SSQA bucket, these buckets have a very narrow top area that will NOT accept the regular Bolt-On Grab Hooks™ or Bolt-On Clevis Mounts™ like the other SSQA buckets shown above.

Our solution for these buckets is to use the Option #1 or Option #2 Bolt-On Grab Hook™ with a welded 2-13/16" spacer as shown above in the Pin-On Style Bucket section. The hooks are place just inside the Quick Attach coupler

Special thanks to Terry B. for providing these great pictures of the option #1 Bolt-On Grab Hook™ with a welded 2-13/16" spacer on his new BX23S.
