Just got a Champion 2000lb winch for Father's Day. Going on a 2018 Mule 4010 Trans used on the farm. Anyone have any experience/ tips for mounting? Front mount so what do I need?
Thanks in advance.
My community owns a Mule KAF620 MJF. We also have a North Star trailer mounted power washer. Fully loaded (w/water tank) the entire trailer weighs 3600#. Since the Mule has a rated towing capacity of 1200#, we are afraid to tow the trailer fully loaded. Since this unit has plowing capability, I have some difficulty believing that it would damage the unit by towing the 3600# unit short distances on perfectly flat terrain, mostly concrete or asphalt. Can any experienced Mule operators comment on your towing experiences?

Please help, About to buy a new 2020 mule 700 MX. For driving back to my cottage which is only accessible by a 5 km off-road trail. My parents currently have a 2010 teyrx which does the job for a joke. The trail is fairly smooth -1 big rock Rock section that you have to climb. A big rtv 1100 Kabota does it no problem as well.
I am looking into the mule because of its bench seat. One of my dogs cannot run in front because they’ve had a hip replacement. she also has anxiety and is not fare well on the teyrx. We think mainly because she can’t get comfortable because of the centre consul. We were thinking because of the mules bench seat she would be able to sit comfortably between me and my wife.
my concern is the mules off-road capability. Do they fare pretty well in the woods/decently smooth ride?
I also plan to do yardwork and plough my driveway with this mule MX. I love the size of it as well, Because it will be easy to store in my shed plus tow behind in my SUV.
please let me know what it’s like in the woods/snow (in Nova Scotia we mainly only have 5inchs Of snow fall on the ground at a time)
please help, me with Determining its off-road capabilities. determining it’s off-road capabilities and keep In mind the trail is in good condition. Also my 700 Yamaha raptor, and 400ex use to do the trail amazing. To give an idea that the trail of pretty good.

Crank un-installedPiston INSTALLED after honing.Crank installed after honing.
Last pic is honed.
Kind of blurry, took it with one hand. It looks better in person. It may not be professional quality but im 99.99999999999999999% sure it will work.
Did better than I thought i would.
So now, only ONE more obstacle. the crankshaft axial play adjustment BUT
I need someones opinion ( i took the piston back out afterwards) not sure if you can see it, but in the picture with cylinder honed, it's almost right where the glare from the light is, and on top of the cylinder directly across from the spot, it looks like the hone didn't get ruffed up. any ideas? out of round cylinder, cylinder wore and needs bored??
Once i get the cylinder honed, the only remaining problem is the crankshaft shim.. And i have a few questions.
1. In the manual it gives a solution to the problem i'm having of the crank NOT spinning when the cover on (by hand).
2. And i just can't wrap what's left of my brain around the instructions, i guess use a caliper to measure? (instructions circled in red)
(my brother has been helping me, he's fairly knowledgeable with this stuff, but more Diesel engines than anything) and he says to use a dial indicator set up, and to use this* as a spec for end play. and that would help us get the measurements needed in picture #2.
1st pic is the runout. But is it the same as crankshaft end play? 🤔
2nd pic is of the instructions (solution) to get the correct shim.
I don't know, maybe this makes sense the way i wrote it.

I have a Mule 550, what year I do not know. It is completely stock as far as I know. It has the original 10" wheels and I would like to upgrade to a 12" because I need to run more asphalt friendly tires. If there is harder tire available for the 10" wheels, PLEASE let me know. My question is what do I need to know to order the correct wheel size and tire size to make this swap. Links to dealers with these options would be greatly appreciated.
