Under 15 mph itís hard to be mule for noise, imo the can am shins Over 15mph, per HP it should be exponentially loader but is about same as mule.

The Defender HD10 is quieter than the equivalent Ranger, and some even say the Mule Pro. I havenít compared it myself to the Mule Pro, so I canít say there. But it **** sure isnít loud.

I had a 2006 and a 2007 Mule. One was great and one was the biggest POS you could own. I replaced them with a Ranger. My 2013 Ranger got stolen last December. It was a great machine with no issues. So I bought a 2020 Ranger Crew. I should have listened to my buddy, Chance Love, and got the Mule.

I appreciate all the information, good stuff here. I am still going to go and test drive the Polaris tomorrow but like I said before, it will be awful hard to beat the Mule.

just my opinion. Very happy with canam. Not loud. Rides well. 2wd will do what other 4wd does. Only really needed to put in 4wd in very nasty conditions.

I had to put my new can am in 4wd to get up a steep hill we have on our place the first time i took it up it. Dont ever remember having to put my mule in 4wd in the 4 years i owned it to get up the same one.

Where did everyone buy their Mule Pro? Any in the Houston/Richmond/Rosenburg area? Im leaning hard towards the Ranch edition.

Mule for sure, ride better and way more dependable.. only thing Polaris 1000 would have better is faster and front locker, but that don’t matter much when it won’t start..

I priced them as far as Louisiana. Best price I found was UVC in Alvin.

Went to Victoria and they beat the price by a couple hundred dollars. Kind of regret getting it there. The service department is a headache in the making.

How much off sticker is considered a good deal?

I know the truck game well but never bought a UTV / ATV.

Been having a mule on my mind for a while. Then out of nowhere the wife come up wanting a golf cart for a town cruiser(little bitty town). I told her if we sell our 99 TJ Jeep, then we can decide what to get. I will still push for the mule although with only two votes it is not always fun to have the minority vote.......cC

I went and test drove the Polaris today, and after I left I knew hands down I’d be getting the Mule Pro. The Polaris was nice, but the Mule Pro was nicer. Now I just need to find one, I am waiting on a call back from UVC in Alvin. I called Mainland and they are waiting on a few Silvers to arrive but I am wanting the rustic bronze color and he said they are not ordering anymore of those.

He did say that the Rona virus has the manufacturers about a month behind but that the 2021 models should be coming out soon. Got me thinking if I should wait and get a 2021. Said it will be another 30-40 days and I am not a patient person at all when I make my mind up so If I can find a 2020 in the rustic bronze, I’ll get it but if I can’t, I guess I’ll have to wait for the 2021s and keep my fingers crossed they are released quicker than 30-40 days.

<<<<<<< Mule for me as well. Smoother ride than Polaris and quieter. Plus the Mule Pro doesn't have the turning radius of an aircraft carrier.

And the ATV world.. I owned 2 years ago.. Both were worthless junk. Nothing but problems from the first month until they were finally gone.... Swore I would never own anything associated with that name again and haven't since.. Never will.

I wonder what is going to change on the 2021ís. I just donít think I am patient enough to wait on the 2021ís, after asking a few dealers they all said they are not sure when the 2021ís are coming out. I have no doubt decided on the Mule though.
