2010 Kawasaki Mule 4010 Trans4X4 (Camo)

A comfortable fit everywhere from farms and ranches to downtown industrial environments, the success of Kawasaki’s two-wheel-drive Mule™ 600 utility vehicle is no secret. Getting two people, tools and supplies to a job site, or letting them enjoy the great outdoors—at a price less than many ATVs—is just smart economics. The versatility of Kawasaki’s entry-level utility model is enhanced by its transportability; it’s an easy fit in the bed of a full-size pickup truck.


2010 Kawasaki Mule 4010 Trans4X4 (Camo) Technology

At a glance…

– New digital fuel injection (DFI®) system
– New electric power steering (EPS) system
– All-new styling
– New dashboard
– Two or four seats with revolutionary transformable design
– Fully automatic transmission with selectable 2 or 4-wheel drive
– Realtree® Hardwoods Green HD® body panels

Transformable Cargo Bed

– Two rows of seats easily accommodate up to four people
– It can be transformed from a four-passenger to a two-passenger off-road utility vehicle with the rear seat folded down and the cargo bed expanded to carry larger payload (From 400 lbs. with 4 passengers to 800 lbs. with 2 passengers)
– Rear bench seat includes retractable seat belts and padded rear-passenger grab handle

Liquid Cooled, V-Twin Engine

– Four-stroke, 617cc V-Twin industrial engine produces exceptional torque at low engine speeds
– Modern four-stroke design with overhead valves for efficient running and good fuel economy
– Large capacity radiator and fan maintain consistent engine temperatures, even in hot climates
– Rubber engine mounts minimize vibration, noise and wear to maximize operation comfort and diminish fatigue

Digital Fuel Injection

– Computer controlled fuel injection system automatically compensates for atmospheric pressure, air and engine temperature, for easy, prompt engine starting under a variety of conditions
– Automatic fast idle speed control eliminates the need for a choke, allowing the operator to drive off immediately after a cold engine start
– Throttle bodies feature sub-throttle valves for optimum performance and drivability. The sub throttles are located behind the main throttle valves and controlled by the ECU for smooth throttle response
– Automatic digital ignition system helps ensure smooth efficient operation
– Maximum engine speed is controlled by the ECU, eliminating the need for a mechanical governor
– Offers easy engine operation and reduced maintenance requirements

Environmentally Friendly Emissions

– DFI precision reduces fuel consumption and cuts exhaust emissions
– Positive crankcase ventilation system sends blow-by gases to the intake tract to be burned in the engine
– Muffler features a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor

Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS)

– Fully automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) features forward high and low and reverse, and helps keep the engine in the right operating rpm for a variety of vehicle speeds, loads, or terrain
– The CVT has a wide spread of drive ratios for quick acceleration and ample pulling power
– Tuned to accommodate higher loads
– Large drive and driven torque converters maximize engagement area of the thick and strong drive belt for improved heat dissipation and add durability
– High-flow cover helps cool the CVT while providing superb splash protection and water proofing
– Sheaves with high silicon type material for increased durability
– An open sided drive pulley cools better for longer belt life
– Offers adjustable belt deflection

Cab Frame Air Intake

– Draws engine air and converter cooling air from the top of the cab frame where there’s less dust, so the air filter stays cleaner longer

Torque Converter Air Filter

– Efficient intake cooling fan draws plenty of air into the CVT
– Special air cleaner with easily replaceable filter element cuts torque converter wear by cooling it with filtered air

New Electric Power Steering (EPS)

– The EPS system reduces steering effort, especially at low speeds when turning effort is greatest
– Input from a vehicle speed and torque sensors determine the amount of steering assistance required from the system’s electric motor
– To keep from possibly draining the battery, the EPS only operates when the engine is running
– When engine is stopped, more force is needed to turn the steering wheel even if the ignition is switched on

4-Wheel Drive with 2-Speed Transfer Case

– Selectable four-wheel drive gives the operator traction options
– Shift to four-wheel drive and low range for maximum traction in adverse conditions or select two-wheel drive and high range to cut gear wear and increase fuel economy

Dual Mode Differential

– Dual-mode rear differential can be “locked” for extra pulling power and maximum traction or unlocked when traveling across delicate terrain

Independent Strut-Type Front Suspension

– MacPherson strut long-travel front suspension provide a comfortable ride and excellent load-carrying capability
– Stiffer springs prevent bottoming and increase ground clearance

DeDion Rear Suspension

– Overload-style leaf springs can handle heavy loads, yet provide a smooth ride when the cargo box is empty
– Semi-independent action

4-Wheel, Self-Adjusting Sealed Hydraulic Drum Brakes

– Powerful, low maintenance four wheel brakes are self-adjusting and feature extra sealing for protection against mud, dust and debris
– The brake drums have an added flange and seal to keep out mud and water

Wheels and Tires

– 23-inch tires with stiff sidewalls for an improved the ride and added ground clearance
– The rear wheel bearings use two rollers in one large bearing for added durability
– The wheel bearings seals on all four wheels have 3 lips for better protection

Front Hood with Storage Tub

– Large under hood storage tub holds cargo out of site
– Offers quick, easy access with a push-button latch
– Includes four D-rings for securing loads

Tilting Cargo Bed

– Steel tilting cargo bed can carry up to 800 pounds
– Thick tailgate panel and secure latching tailgate locking pins reduces vibration and noise, and adds durability

Rugged and Capable

– Can tow up to 1,200 lbs with optional Kawasaki draw bar
– Meets federal Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS) requirements for wheeled tractors under SAE J1194, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.4, and 7.5, and also meets FMVSS 216 roof crush resistance requirement
– Bench seat can carry up to three
– Durable chassis includes winch-ready mounts to simplify winch installation

Simple Maintenance

– The oil dipstick and filler tube are accessed under the seat
– Cyclone-type engine air cleaner has meter to indicate when to replace the filter
