This ones a no-brainer: If youre looking for the most functional, most useful and most durable utility vehicle on the market, look no further than the 2011 Kawasaki Mule 4010 Trans4x4 Diesel.
The Trans4x4 truly does it all, from people hauler to cargo hauler to everyday workhorse. The key to all this functional flexibility is the Trans4x4s convertible design, as it only takes a moment to go from two-passenger, long-bed, cargo-hauler configuration to four-person, short-bed mode. Plus theres the peace of mind that comes with a diesel engine, a design renowned for its long-haul durability and reliability. This powerful and torquey three-cylinder engine teams up with selectable four-wheel drive, electric power steering (EPS) system, a fully automatic transmission and locking rear differential to make the handy Mule 4010 Trans4x4 Diesel an outstanding choice for practically every utility vehicle role. Producing 38.3 lb.-ft. of torque @ 2,800 rpm, this 953cc engine has enough low-end pulling power to tackle the heaviest workloads.
This diesel engine is matched to the Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS), a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that features a high and low range, reverse, and the ability to keep engine rpm in the most efficient range for any selected vehicle speed, load, or terrain. It yields a wide drive ratio spread for ample pulling power and quick acceleration.
Large torque converters maximize belt engagement area for optimal heat dissipation, strength and durability. Wear is reduced by the use of a thick, strong drive belt and sheaves with high silicon-type material. Tuned specifically to accommodate higher payloads, the KAPS durability is further aided by cooling the torque converter with filtered air from a special air cleaner with an easily replaceable element and an efficient fan to move sufficient cooling air through the CVT. A high-flow cover also helps lower CVT temperatures while providing superb splash protection and resistance to water intrusion.
This reliable system transmits power to a dual-mode locking rear differential through a dependable, low-maintenance shaft drive. The Trans4x4 Diesel also sports a limited slip front differential and two-speed transfer case for the four-wheel drive system, allowing the operator to engage four-wheel drive for extra traction and pulling power in difficult conditions.
A cyclone-type Donaldson air filter system with a replaceable paper element supplies the engine with clean air. This efficient design needs less frequent cleaning, even with repeated use in extremely dusty off-road conditions. Helping the filter stay clean and last longer especially in the rugged conditions for which this Kawasaki was built is a design in which engine air and converter cooling air are both drawn from the top of the cab frame, where theres less dust.
