Four-wheel drive, fuel-injected, powersteering: Reliable utility competence
When four-wheel-drive traction is a must for hauling cargo around farms, through fields or to remote job sites, the Kawasaki MuleTM 4010 4x4 is the off-road utility vehicle of choice. With its full-size chassis, selectable four-wheel drive and powerful, digital fuel injection (DFIŽ) equipped engine there is never a doubt it can get the job done. The Mule 4010 4x4 also features an electric power steering (EPS) system, a fully-automatic transmission, locking rear differential and a tilting cargo bed.
The Mule 4010 4x4's liquid-cooled 617cc four-stroke V-twin is managed by a digital Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and features a DFI system that compensates for variations in atmospheric pressure, engine and air temperature. The result is smooth and consistent engine starting, crisp throttle response and precise fuel metering, which helps reduce fuel consumption. The ECU incorporates an automatic fast idle speed control that activates when the engine is cold, eliminating the need for a manual choke. Its electronics also regulate maximum engine speed, eliminating the need for a mechanical governor.
The powerful 617cc V-twin engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that features both high and low range plus reverse. Power is transmitted through a dependable, low-maintenance shaft drive system to a dual-mode rear differential that can be locked to maximize traction, or unlocked to improve handling and minimize ground disturbance when making tight turns. Mule 4010 drivers can also engage four-wheel drive for extra traction in difficult conditions.
