Kawasaki Mule - cold start squeeling

Recommended Posts

Hello All! I picked up a used Mule yesterday for a small holding equestrian centre I run.

Ran fine in the warm, no problems as you would expect for a machine with 1500 hours. did all the usual checks before horking over cash.


Super cold and frozen this a.m. in England... started fine but when I put into gear, it's squealing away.

is this normal?

is it just some sort of belt like you have on a water pump on a car?

figure there is some sort of hydraulic transmission and something in there is just a bit cold as only squeals when in gear/driving. anything to worry about??

thanks in advance.

Ok.. I turned it on a for a few minutes and let it warm up. no sound at all.

So it's a 2006, I think. 24K kms and 1500 hours and I'm super happy I bought it.

Let me know if you think the squealing is a sign of wear in the trans or not.
