2010 Kawasaki Mule 600

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 600 Technology

At a glance…

– Rugged and compact off-road utility vehicle
– Easy to use, with low operating costs
– Can be easily transported in the back of a full-size pickup truck
– Can tow up to 1,100 lbs. with optional Kawasaki trailer hitch installed

Fan-Cooled, Single-Cylinder Engine – Simple, lightweight, durable, and quiet 401cc four-stroke engine
– Modern four-stroke overhead valve design for efficient running and good fuel economy
– Cooling fan helps the engine maintain an ideal operating temperature

Easy Starting

– Choke opens throttle during starting so accelerator pedal does not need to be depressed
– Can be started in gear by depressing brake pedal

Gear Driven Engine Balancer – Balanced weight opposite the piston cuts vibration dramatically and minimizes noise and wear
– Maximizes operator comfort, and diminishes fatigue

Environmentally Friendly Emissions

– Carburetor settings cut exhaust emissions
– Positive crankcase ventilation system recycles blow-by gasses to the intake tract to be burned in the engine
– Muffler has USFS-approved spark arrestor
– California models have a check valve on the fuel tank to charcoal canister connector hose for preventing gasoline from entering the canister when operating on inclines or over rough terrain

Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS)

– Simple and lightweight CVT is fully automatic and keeps engine speed in most efficient range for any vehicle speed, load, or terrain
– An open-sided drive pulley cools better for longer belt life.
– Belt deflection can easily be adjusted by changing shim thickness of the adjuster bolt located on the outside of the driven converter
– Cooling air flows in from a vent in the cab frame through a special air filter, which keeps out water and dust for increased belt life
– Long wearing double cog CVT belt

Dual-Mode Differential

– Locked mode for maximum traction in difficult conditions
– Unlocked mode decreases turning radius and minimizes ground disturbance, great for use on grass.

Rack and Pinion Steering

– Rack-and-pinion steering helps to keep steering light and accurate, which makes maneuvering in tight working quarters a snap
– Durable, simple and easy to maintain

MacPherson Strut Independent Front Suspension

– Comfortable ride and excellent load-carrying capability
– Simple, rugged single A-arm design offers tight turning radius for extra maneuverability

Unit Swingarm Rear Suspension

– Unique design places engine and rear wheels on a sub-frame with a mid-point pivot
– Isolates vibration
– Can handle heavy loads, yet provides comfortable ride with an empty cargo bed

Off-Road Tires

– Special tread pattern and 22-inch tires enhance off-road traction, ride quality and reduce tire wear


– Self-Adjusting, Hydraulic drum brakes at all four wheels provide ample stopping power
– Front grille includes space for mounting a 3000-pound capacity winch
