Mule Mistake? I'm looking to buy a mule. I found a 2006 Mule KAF620 with 3200hrs. Is this asking for problems with that many hours? What are common problems?

It was owned by a large engineering/construction company and it has a speed governor that I would like to remove. What kind of problem could that give me?

I had the opportunity to visit with a Kawasaki rep in the late 90's when and we were discussing the advantages of water cooled Kaw engines over air, specifically in John Deere lawn mowers. Whether it is correct or not, he mentioned the majority of engines (air cooled) are designed to run around 200 degrees and with good maintenance you might expect to see somewhere around 3500 hours and add 50% to that time when coupled to liquid cool. Even if this estimate is correct or not, 3200 hours is high and a new complete engine would set you back $2000, so I would factor that into the equation, assuming you like the unit.
