2014 diesel mule transmission failure

Recommended Posts

Showing 1,200 miles & 140 hours the transmission failed, the selling dealer tells me the different sized tires on the front vs rear are the culprit.

They installed matching taller tires on all four (at my request) and tightened up the spring @ the converter to the 2nd notch. ( I have no idea what that means).

My previous mule 3010 gas lasted over 1,000 hours of abuse, I mean hard abuse on construction sites by my employees.

I went with a diesel for my own use thinking that diesel is a heaver duty machine. This machine gets babied.

Now they stopped making the diesel option for 2015.

Can I expect an additional failure soon? Maybe go back to stock size tires & wheels?

      Rear right tire blew out going down the gravel road the other day, tried plugging it, but it was on the sidewall and it kept tearing down the sidewall, (rear tires are probably 10 years old, at least), so i called the dealership here in town since  i knew they keep tires in stock.
      Employee:"thank you for calling pro powersports how can i help you"
      Me:"i need to check on a price for a rear tire, 01 mule 550 KAF300C5, tire size is 22x11-10"
      Employee"alright, hang on one sec"
      Me:"okay"
      Employee "$237 for 1 tire"
      Me :"thank you sir"

      Do not know if any of you Hisun E1 owners have  had issues with the parking brake pedal  not returning completely, thus preventing you from moving forward or reverse.   I had this issue and even sometimes when going over rough road the parking brake pedal would move down far enough to shut off power.  Local  dealer said no one had complained about that issue and they had no fix.  So decided to correct it myself. I installed a return spring on the parking brake arm and it stopped the problem!

      Hello everyone,
      I am a mechanical engineering student who is trying to design a UTV to be used by maintenance workers around parks and university campuses. One of our unique selling points was that the rear cargo area would be modular so it can be swapped out for different "rear modules". For example, it could just be cargo hold but also a cage, refrigeration, more passenger seats or carrying woodchip etc.
      What would be an easy way of detaching the different rear modules and swapping with a new one? A way of securing it to the frame but also allowing it to be removed with ease. From what I've seen, most UTV bodies are directly bolted to the frame.
      Thank you for reading.
      Ash
