Glad I found the forum, seems like some pretty knowledgeable folk in here. I recently bought a Mule with 860 hours on it from auction and I've noticed a couple small issues I'd like to get some opinions on.
1. When the Mule is heated up, been driving 15-20 minutes, when going uphill, it'll have a really hard time getting out of a "low" gear and when trying to shift upwards, it will make a sound like it's not catching and won't pick up speed. If you push down on the gas, the noise gets worse, and you're not goin any faster. I've worked around this by stopping the mule, dropping it in neutral, leaving it running for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, then shifting back into drive and it'll go a little ways further before having the issues again.
2. When going from a stop uphill, the entire mule will shudder and shake while moving for the first few seconds, after that, it lets up.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
