Mule Pro FXR Report

Recommended Posts

Picked up my Mule in late November and have been using it a lot over the past few weekends. This UTV just keeps on amazing me of what it can do. I have lots of old logging trails that have been overtaken by brush and sappling's that my 4X4 truck can no longer navigate through, but the Mule plows through and over anything in its path. I have a natural gas line running up a steep hill that is covered in limestone and other huge rocks that the Mule has conquered going up and down and sideways. Going through pastures at 25 mph as smooth as a Cadillac on the highway is really nice. I have yet to try deep mud or snow but that should be coming soon in the next few weeks, I hope.

She may not be a speed demon like some of the others out there, but she will climb with the best of them.

Ol' Reliable.  Kawasaki's never fail to deliver what you need.  Just treat it right, regular maintenance and it'll last for ever.

54 degrees today, but 21 for the low tomorrow and possible snow for Christmas! Lots of rain the past 24 hours so the mud holes should be nice and fresh!

I'm in Kentucky, so we experience all 4 seasons in one week, LOL!

Took it out earlier. Its like 7 degree's outside. Mud frozen solid but the Mule went everywhere I wanted her to go with no problems. My face is now perma-frosted!

    • 2015 Kawasaki Mule Brush Guard Installation

      I purchased a Kawasaki Brush Guard for my Mule and cant seem to make it fit. The upper brackets will not slide in enough to meet up with the hole to put the bolts thru (about 1/2 inch short). I had removed the scored area in the grill as shown in the instructions, so that is not it. It seems like I might have to score out the upper most section of the grill to make it fit but all i see or read this should not be? Anyone else had a problem with installing one?

    • Just picked up a nice old Kawasaki Mule 2510, 617cc, 4x4

      Hey guys, I have held off buying an ATV/UTV until I finally couldn't stand it, the price of $1700 for a great running, fairly clean 1997 Mule got me into the game. I couldn't pass that up, went on Amazon and found a 72" steel plow and 4000 lb winch and now have a snow plower for under $2100. I will need to fab the mount for the plow but thats not a big issue, I am retired and have nothing but time so its a fun project. I am loving having the workhorse with the 4x4 and tilt box and low range...it's everything in a work/toy that a guy could ask for.

    • UTV as a compact truck

      Finding small trucks are no longer available for purchase in the USA (Ford Courier etc) I had been looking to import a small truck from another country, but there seems to be problems registering one of these (smog). The problem I have to overcome is a sharp turn in my drive in front of my garage. I could not do the turn in a Ford Ranger. Someone suggested a UTV. They are street legal in my state, so that works fine. I would be driving around town, occasionally hauling appliances, and moving snow. Off-road capabilities and some rugged trips to the mountains would be a big plus. Having very little experience with UTVs or ATVs, and never owning one myself I looked through all the specs and can find no problem. My question is what limitations would I likely run into using a UTV as a small truck? The two likely candidates (based on top speed and hauling capacity) are the Arctic Cat Prowler 700 HDX and the Polaris Ranger XP 900 LE.
