I have a Kubota 2013 L3200 tractor. I have the opportunity to buy a Kubota LA 525 front end loader. I am trying to verify that the LA 525 front end loader will fit my L3200 tractor. Are the bolt patterns on the support arms of the LA 525, the same as the bolt pattern on my L3200 Kubota Tractor on the left and right side?

Tractordata lists the LA524 as the loader for it. I don't know how much difference there is between the 524 and 525 loaders.

I appreciate your response. I have a Dealership willing to sell me a LA 525, but won't install it. And once the sell is final. There will be no returns. Just trying to get confirmation that I am not wasting a lot of money. Thanks again.

I understand that the LA 524 was the front end loader that originally came on the 2013 Kubota L3200 tractor. But the LA 524 are no longer in production. And it is close to impossible to find a LA 524. The LA 525 are getting hard to find brain new. Just trying to get something before the LA 525 are impossible to find. Just need to know that it will bolt on to the L3200.

No problem.



Will they not install it because it calls for the 524? Mine was sold new with the 525 on it
I don't know why they won't install the LA 525 on my L3200. They are a Kubota Dealership and they tell me that it is a corporate discision. Something about liability concerns. I will have a independent tractor mechanic install it for me. I just need to know for sure that it will bolt up.

I have seen multiple YouTube videos with a LA 525 on a Kubota L3200 and L3800 tractor. I was just trying to verify that they didn't do some kind of modification to make them fit. I appreciate everyone's response. It helps put my mind at ease. Before I spend all this money. Thanks again.

The part numbers for the two sub frame members that bolt to the tractor are the same number.
Thank you. I have checked the parts number. And the specs sheet for the 524, 525, and 526. And you are correct. The part numbers for the sub frame members for the LA 524 FEL, LA 525 FEL, and the LA 526 FEL are all the same. The LA 524 was for the L3200 and L3800. The LA 525 was for the L3301 and L3901. The LA 526 FEL is for the L 3302 and L3902. All the same L series of Kubota Tractors. Just the next generation. I just don't understand why the Kubota Dealerships want confirm that the LA 525 will fit the L3200. I have checked with multiple local Kubota Dealerships. And they all check with corporate. And give the same statement. Quote " we can't say that it will fit, because of liability issues." They don't say it won't fit. They don't say that it won't bolt on. But they will not install the LA 525 on my L3200 Kubota Tractor for liability issues. I understand that there is about 4 pounds of lifting capacity difference on the specs sheet. But for what I will be using for. I don't plan on hitting the top end capacity. I just need to know that it will bolt up.
