Workman utility meets power and convenience
The foundation of Kawasaki's full-size industrial-grade utility vehicle line, the two-wheel drive MuleTM 4000's full-size chassis and more powerful, digital fuel injection (DFIŽ) equipped engine offers a step up in cargo and towing capacity from the compact Mule 600 series. The Mule 4000 also features a fully-automatic transmission, locking rear differential and a tilting cargo bed.
The Mule 4000's liquid-cooled 617cc four-stroke V-twin engine 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 power, easy 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 Mule 4000 harnesses a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to provide quick acceleration and efficient pulling power. Dependable, low-maintenance shaft drive 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 making tight turns.
