Default Little behind the times, got my first side x side.

Been wanting one for years, and we are in a good place now, so after saving my pennies I picked it up yesterday. Been doing a lot of research on the Can Am, Ranger, Mule and Kubota. Went and test drove all of them, and the mule went from last to First on my list within 60 seconds of the test drive. Got a few goodies for it With a 6 year warranty, Iíll have this thing for a while. It is an awesome machine!

Those Ranch editions are nice looking but I donít blame you. You made a good decision.

Anything that is solid colored plastic shows scratches over time. Camo resists looking like that. Scratches just blend with the pattern.

Congrats! I’ve got the same rig, went with camo because I think it’ll show less scratches. If you plan on keeping that roof throw a strap over the rear part that flips up when towing. A lot of people told me it wasn’t an issue but mine flew off this past weekend towing it home.
Also if you have Facebook join the Kawasaki mule pro page. Lots of good info there.

Good deal. I finally broke down and bought a mule a few years ago and it has become an everyday tool.

Like you I checked all brands and I also have an inside advantage because I service Kubita,JD, Can Am, Polaris, Kawasaki and Yamaha dealers. More repair techs told me to buy a mule than any other brand.

Got one this year myself. After years of wanting one just could not see spending the money. Me and the wife was bored one day and went and test drove them. I choose the mule the next day she told m to go pick it up. She had bought me the pro fxt ranch edition.

Congrats to you sir.

I kept telling myself that I could buy a Jeep for what a mule cost. I have beat the heck out of my pick up truck with my stubbornness.

Congrats on the mule and no your not the only one behind the times. I been wanting one also for several years just hadn’t done it.

Curious about the Ranger though. What didnt you like about that one?

My only negative about the ranger was, all the complaints about it being in the shop. Seems like it was constant. In my opinion, the mule out preforms the ranger in everything except speed(I donít care) and no front locker(I do care!).
