So there's a part of the loader bracket that's right infront of the step that goes to the rear of the subframe that has a bolt pattern for 4 bolts. When I got the tractor delivered it came with 3 of the 4 bolts installed. Two on the front and the third on the bottom.

I had some setup issues from the dealer(couple loose bolts on loader, forgot to connect 4x4 driveshaft, connected driveshaft housing wrong resulting in rubbing metal) so now I'm starting to wonder if they missed a few bolts as well. However the main Kubota site shows a mix as well. Here( https://www.kubotausa.com/images/default-source/features/0215_l3560_cab_snowblower_7037.jpg ) you can clearly see 3 bolts. However here( https://www.kubotausa.com/images/default-source/features/0812_l6060_0098---rwc.jpg ) you can clearly see 4 bolts behind the wheel.

How has other machines with the LA1055 been setup when you've gotten them? It seems odd to omit the bolt when the hole is already there and the cost of an extra bolt is pretty small in the scope of a whole machine.

My LA805 has 4 bolts. And my feet are cold from checking!

The Illustrated Parts Drawing shows 4 bolts on each side for a total of 8.

If the two holes are there I would put the bolts in. If you happen to be at the dealer I would ask your salesman for the two bolts and a free filter (hydraulic....if possible)
