Hello all, I am new here as well as a first time tractor owner. I am hoping someone can help me with the spacer size for Kens Bolt on hooks for a LA1055 loader. Currently my new tractor is in another state and I really want to get the option #2 hooks before I go up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You'll probably have to measure your specific bucked per the instructions on Ken's page. Kubota used different buckets and the dimensions can vary. I followed the instructions and was quite pleased with the result. Until you get back to your tractor you probably won't be using it and Ken's gives really speedy delivery and fantastic customer service.

Unfortunately just saying "LA1055 loader" does not help. Assuming you have the SSQA (skid steer quick attach) bucket that comes off with the two black handles, there are still a few different buckets you might have.

I will "guess" that your bucket is like the first one we cover on THIS page at the website, but it has a wider top so you don't need the extra metal shim piece, just our regular Bolt-On Hooks with 1-3/4" bolts instead of the normal 1-1/2" bolts.

Here is an example of what I think you may have:

Waynes MX5200 LA1065.JPG



This bucket will not use the welded spacers, bolting the parts directly to the heavy top plate is the strongest.

If you have any pictures of your machine, I could help better here or directly via email. boltonhooks@gmail.com

Thank you everyone for your responses. With the help of kennyd4110 we were able solve the mystery. I am sure I will have more questions that seem simple but this is our first tractor and we have a ot to learn. Thanks again everyone.

Happy to help @Tsage66 , thanks for the business!
@Kennyd4110 i'm new to the forum here (found it when doing some basic searching for my new tractor -- two weeks old) and trying to find the best set to get for my bucket, too. I have the LA555 loader with the L2256 quick attach bucket.

I knew that grab hooks were going to be my first add just because of everything I need to move around the house currently and keep getting directed to your store. i'm just trying to make sure that I choose the correct combo before checking out.

These are the ones I currently have in my cart on your site: https://www.boltonhooks.com/product...e-back-quick-attach-bucket-shim-and-bolt-set/

TIA


@Tsage66 sorry for jacking your thread somewhat, but your question and mine seemed to be the same. just hoped it'd be easier to comment on here instead of starting 'another' hooks thread. :cheers:

After reading this thread, I decided to order a set of hooks for the loader on my Kubota MX 5100. Great little hooks,had them in less than a week, informative instructions, and installed in about an hour! Thanks Kennyd4110. Richard

I bought the bolt on hooks from Ken two years ago. I can move things I never could in the past. They are very handy. They still look like the day I purchased them! Thanks Ken!
