Default 2020 Kawasaki Mule Pro vs Polaris Ranger 1000

Okay the green screen has never steered me wrong before so I asking for advise again. I am in the market for either the new Mule Pro or the new Polaris Ranger and I am stuck between the two. I will be going and test driving both of them before I purchase one but want to ask what everyone opinions or experience has been that own them. Let me know and I appreciate the help.

MULE PRO...there will be plenty of guys say Polaris because the mule is slow. well its not a speed demon but its not designed to be a drag race winner but
built to work. suspension is very nice IMO. Me and my dad were hesitant to get rid of our Hondas but needed to move up to 4 seaters and went kawi and have had no issues

I plan on buying a Mule Pro within the next 30 days, although someone in another thread mentioned they might be redesigned next year. I searched around online and couldn’t find anything one way or the other, but it’s worth keeping in mind.

Good info here. I just sold my 2014 Polaris this evening and never had any issues with it but I’m starting to lean towards the Mule Pro honestly. Looks like the first 4 votes have been for the Mule.

I was interested in the mule, but when it came time to buy, Kawasaki put recalls out and retailers were unable to sell. This was only a few weeks ago. I ended up buying another ranger anyway, since my 2013 was an awesome machine. Routine oil changes and maintenance and no issues whatsoever. So far, I’m in love with the new Ranger 1000. Super quiet and very smooth.

Can am is great as well..
I look at it from a different perspective since I have have to repair most all of the major brands.
Yamaha and Kawasaki fall into the same category..very dependable and will take an arse kicking and still run..although usually on the lower end of "high performance"
Bombardier(can am)/seadoo and Polaris were the top performers not only for high performance but for modding and tuning... I could get gobs more power from these engines vs the Japanese ones.
So it kinda leans back to preference-- if you want extreme reliability and dont really care for the options in expanding the hp and mods then go with Kawasaki yamaha or Honda
If you want to add some pep like clutches axles and lifts then go with a Polaris or the can am...the aftermarket options are endless

Everyone is giving you advice without knowing your needs and uses. "If" you will be hauling 4 people AND filling feeders, running dog boxes, have a bed sprayer or anything you NEED more than 1.5' of bed space, the Mule Pro won't work for you. If you plan on trail riding for long periods, The Mule Pro is not near as comfortable with upright bench seating and wheel-wells blocking where your foot would comfortably sit. Now, for short, deer lease/hunting rides, it's a non-issue.

I really like The Mule Pro, but for my needs, I'd have to take a lot into consideration before I bought one.

In my opinion those two are both great but very different. The ranger crew is much bigger.

Kawasaki over Polaris any day, all day.. The warranty alone is a huge difference. I've owned 2 Polaris products in my life, years ago, and both were junk..

I've got a Mule Pro FXt because of the warranty, solid and quiet engine and the bed being able to convert to 2 different sizes. Speed not a priority for me but dang it goes 46-47mph. How much more speed do people need for a hunting rig? I've had the rig for a year and taken it to New Mexico hunting rough country to carrying 18 bags of corn in bed around farm filling feeders with no issues.

I went and test drove the Mule Pro today and all I can say is WOW. Very smooth, very quite and plenty of speed. The ONLY cons it had was a small bed (it was actually bigger than I thought) and seems like the Polaris may have more storage but really really liked it. I am going to test drive the Polaris on Saturday before making a final decision but as of right now, it will be awful hard to be the Mule Pro.

If you decide to get the mule the upgraded seat is well worth the money, and Iíd also get elka shocks, instead of a lift and HD springs.

I was worried about the small bed in crew mode, only time Iíve had to extend was picking up a fourth deer and over 15 bags of corn.

In rough country mule suspension felt like it “rolled” if that’s the right term way more than Polaris. Performance isn’t even close. My picks from ranch use would be CanAm, Polaris, then the Mule. Have had no real issues with any of our rangers but CanAm is even better so far and that with lift and 30” tires. Even without the performance factor I pick them in that order

I have only had my CanAm a month though.

Mule trust me. Everyone likes their Can AM's and Polaris until they go in for repairs. Yeah the rangers and Can am's are faster and taller and look better, but they will not last compared to mules. This is coming from a guy with 2 rangers right now. We went from Mules to Rangers. Terrible mistake.

I'll go against the grain... Polaris all day.

I have a 1000 crew (2019) and it just flat out works. Suspension on the new ones are much better.. How reliable, this is my 3rd ranger and I have never turned the key and one not start, I have never been left walking... All damages and problems I have had with my rangers were self inflicted.

2009 700XP - no issues, still doing work for a buddy up in Wisconsin
2015 900 Crew - No issues other than a could axles (doing things I shouldn't)
2019 1000 Crew - Routine fluid changes is all that has been done..

Mule, Ranger or Can Am = Dodge, Ford, Chevy

Go look at them and get the one YOU like...

I got a 19 mule pro FXR. I have a friend that repairs 4wheelers and UTVs at his ranch. He used to worked at a Dealer for 15 years before that. He told me the mule is way easier to work on. The rangers come back more than a dealer will admit.


When I bought mine the dealer threw in a sound bar. I stopped in at the shop when they were installing it. All rangers in the bays with issues. The dealer mechanic tells me ď you got the right one. The rangers always have problems... I didnít even ask him he just made that statement on his own ď

I test drove both. The ranger is quicker off the line no doubt. The mule has torque and you can feel it by comparison.

No issues with mine so far. My tech says the issues that do come up are with the transmission when people get stuck and they try to ďhit itĒ out of holes. Instead of working there way out of a problem. Itís a band transmission and it knocks it off the ďguidesĒ. He said ďif you get stuck , donít redneck it out of there... shift and ease your way out .. it will come out ď 2nd the parking breaks often need adjustment. Other than that we see Um for oil changes.

I also test drove the Honda pioneer. The guy tells me they are solid but a lot of people donít like how they shift. I felt that right away. Not bad. Just felt ... odd.

So I went through this last year. Went to the dealer thinking I would be buying a Ranger, and came home with a Pro FXR. $ for $ more upgrades and features on the FXR and it just rode and drove so much nicer than the comparable polaris. I've had it for a year now, about 175 hours on it, use it daily on our ranch and its just a workhorse.

Are you talking speed or ride? I have never understood the go super fast on an ATV crowd. I use mine for hunting 90% of the time and I drive 15 up to 30 mph. Driving 50 thru a pasture does me zero good hunting wise. If it's the ride you are talking about I have no comment as I havent ridden in or owned a Can Am. I have owned a Mule and multiple Rangers. I would own a Ranger again.

Overall ride, comfort and features. My biggest complaint with the Mule is the seats and leg room and lack of storage. Also the bed is small for my needs. We have had Rangers, Mules, Gators and Can Am. By far the Can Am has been the best for us. We have 2 at the ranch and my Brother in law has a Mule Pro still and if my sister would let him he would sale it and switch to the CanAm.

Now if a person wants a no frills simple machine the Mule is good.

Elka series 1 shocks turn the ride into an extremely impressive machine. It also is an adjustable lift and HD springs

If anyone asked me what singular mod to do thatís it.

Had a Ranger EV. Great machine for an electric one.

Now run a Mule Pro FXT. Ranger wasn't really in the running when I was shopping. Neither was Can-Am. I needed a crew to haul more people (clients) and those two machines are just too long. I get into some pretty tight places and really liked the turning radius of the Mule. The Mule was quieter (very important to me) and rode smoother. I don't care about going fast. I think I've had this Mule up to 30 maybe one time "just to see", and that was enough. Most of my ranch cruising is at less than 20mph. Also, I did not need a bigger bed. The beds on ALL makes are too dang high for me to throw deer in by myself, so I always just use a hitch carrier. The Mule also seemed to be better built. It's heavier for a reason.
