The 2015 MULE™ 4000 provides the Foundation of Engineering Heritage in Kawasaki’s Full-Size MULE Side x Side Line

The 2015 Kawasaki MULE™ 4000 is a vehicle built to get the job done, no matter how big or how small. Another evolution of Kawasaki’s proud manufacturing heritage, the MULE 4000 side x side’s heavy-duty chassis and industrial grade four-stroke V-twin engine with Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®)offer enough torque to haul seriously heavy loads. With a towing capacity of 1,200 lb and the ability to carry up to 800 lb of almost anything in its cargo bed, there’s a reason this MULE is the cornerstone of Kawasaki’s 4000 series side x side line.

A fully automatic transmission and locking rear differential allow the MULE 4000 to tackle tough terrain with ease, while a burly front brush guard of tubular steel helps protect the nose from debris and minor impacts. Cabin features such as a combination digital fuel gauge and hour meter are easy to read, while attention was paid to details including a dash-mounted horn button that eliminates unintended honking while turning. A sturdy sport-style steering wheel enhances driver comfort for those long days at work or those longer days escaping from it.

If there’s one thing the MULE 4000 is not lacking, it’s power. Its liquid-cooled 617cc four-stroke V-twin is managed by a digital Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and features a Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) system that compensates for variations in atmospheric pressure, engine and air temperature. The result is smooth and consistent power, easy starting, crisp throttle response and precise fuel metering, which helps reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions.

The ECU incorporates an automatic fast idle speed control that activates when the engine is cold, eliminating the need for a manual choke. Maximum engine speed is regulated electronically, so there’s no need for a mechanical governor.

For those times when the going gets tough, the MULE 4000 features a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides quick acceleration and efficient pulling power. A dependable and low-maintenance shaft drive system transfers power to a dual-mode differential that can be locked to maximize rear wheel traction, or unlocked to improve handling and minimize ground disturbance when negotiating tight turns.

Like its accurate, light-steering rack-and-pinion system, the MULE 4000’s easy-to-operate controls are both user friendly and well positioned to maximize comfort and convenience. The gear selector on the dash is within easy reach and the headlights are activated by a simple push-button switch.

Instrumentation includes an easily viewable coolant temperature warning light, a digital fuel gauge and hour meter and a dash-mounted horn. The convenient air restriction gauge indicates when the MULE 4000’s air filter needs cleaning or replacement.

Located beneath the seat, the fuse box and oil dipstick are easily accessed, making maintenance chores a cinch.

MULE 4000’s roomy and comfortable cab is surrounded by a large-diameter steel tube frame structure. With its modern and rugged bodywork, the MULE 4000 is a contender for the toughest work environments.

Its Dark Royal Red and new Timberline Green body panels are manufactured from durable, color-molded plastic that helps hide minor scuffs and scratches. The front hood can be opened with the pull of a dash-mounted knob and allows access to a deep storage space equipped with convenient D-rings to help secure cargo. Additionally, two levers make opening and closing the tailgate a secure and easy process.

The convenience factor on the MULE 4000 extends beyond easy-access latches or controls; it can also boast owner-friendly features such as the winch-ready mounting plate located under the front grille, which greatly simplifies the winch installation process.
The MULE 4000 chassis is based around a heavy-duty ladder-type frame riding on a DeDion-type rear leaf-spring suspension designed to carry heavy loads yet provide a smooth ride when the cargo bed is empty.

The cab is surrounded by an extremely strong large-diameter steel Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS) that meets SAE J1194, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.4, and 7.5 requirements for wheeled tractors, and also meets the FMVSS 216 roof crush resistance requirement.

MacPherson struts handle front suspension duties and provide a good balance of comfort and load capacity. Sealed, self-adjusting hydraulic drum brakes at all four wheels offer progressive stopping power, and large 23″ tires at all four corners provide maximum traction for a variety of surfaces as well as a comfortable ride.

The MULE 4000 side x side can carry 800 lb in its steel cargo bed and tow up to 1,200 lb with its standard 2″ receiver hitch (when equipped with the optional draw bar.)

These and many other Genuine Kawasaki Accessories are available through authorized Kawasaki dealers.
