New Mule Owner...need a little help

Hi folks...1st post as a new Mule owner.

Actually, I have bought a new 2011 Mule 610 (standard model) and will be picking it up on Wednesday next week. I found a used 2010 5' x10' utility trailer (3000 pound axle and 15" wheels) with a tilt bed, so I am ready to go and get it!

Well, maybe.

I never owned one of these units before, and I have had a couple of short test drives....

I am sure open to any suggestions and advice for this new UTV....

First question is how do I get it on to the trailer. I assume that I just tilt the bed and drive it on. Seems too simple to me. How might you suggest I tie it down. I bought two tie straps that are 2" wide and 10' long with hooks on each end.. I am assumming I can wrap each strap around an axle or the frame and ratchet it to the frame rails...anything else I need to do?

Should I position the mule all the way to the front rail of the trailer or should I try to center it?

Silly question, I know, but I really do not want to wreck it on the ay home from the dealer...thanks in advance for the help...

Good product !

Just drop the bed and drive it on !

I ALWAYS use at least 4 straps, most of the time 6 or more. If one comes loose you are still OK. If you only use two, ONE comes loose you are in sad shape !

Place the Mule in the center then pull forward to put some extra (small amount) on the front of the trailer. You are suppose to be carrying 10% more weight on the nose of the trailer. You should be able to see you tow vehicle sag down a little as you pull forward. If you don't the trailer will whip as you get up to speed. Watch the trailer as you first start down the road for the whipping. If it does, pull over and adjust, don't just keep driving.

Let us know how you did.

Good luck & have fun !

      I have a 2018 Pro FXT-LE and had a 3" lift kit installed at purchase. I am looking to replace the stock 26" tires that came on it with some 30" mudlite tires. How can I confirm whether they will fit or not or determine whether extended A Arms are required for clearance?

      This is a new problem for my 3400. When plowing, it shifts into reverse with no problem. When I try to shift to high or low is when it’s hard, sometimes VERY hard to get it in gear. What’s up?

      Question for the group....i have a 2015 Mule 610..........been pretty reliable....250 hours on meter.....this past weekend, i was plowing snow..........yes, extremely cold, but i noticed that Mule ran fine when running around the neighborhood, but when i went to plow, especially when the snow was heavy,  when i would come to the end of a "push", the thing would stall out......started right back up with no issues......ran ok otherwise.................doesn't miss, doesn't backfire, idles fine otherwise.....any thoughts? thanks
