MULE 4010 Trans4x4



Jobs change, one day you might need to haul materials around, and the next may find you transporting crew members to a remote job site. The Mule™ 4010 Trans4x4® utility vehicle is the perfect solution. As a tough two-seater, the Mule 4010 Trans4x4 can haul a serious amount of lumber, tools, or hay around the farm or construction site. But if job requirements suddenly change, it easily transforms into a four passenger transport in just a few quick steps, making it one of the most versatile vehicles in its class. No extra parts to remove, no extra tools required.

Transformable Cargo Bed

• Two rows of seats easily accommodate up to four people

• Rear bench seat includes retractable seat belts and padded rear-passenger grab handle

Liquid Cooled V-Twin Engine

• Industrial strength four-stroke, 617cc V-twin engine produces exceptional torque at low engine speeds

• Modern four-stroke design with overhead valves for efficient running and good fuel economy

• Large capacity radiator and fan maintain consistent engine temperatures, even in hot climates

• Rubber engine mounts minimize vibration, noise and wear to maximize operation comfort and diminish fatigue

Environmentally Friendly Emissions

• DFI precision reduces fuel consumption and cuts exhaust emissions

• Positive crankcase ventilation system sends blow-by gases to the intake tract to be burned in the engine

• Muffler features a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor

Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS)

• Fully automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) features forward high and low and reverse, which helps keep the engine in the right operating rpm for a variety of vehicle speeds, loads or terrain

• The CVT has a wide spread of drive ratios for quick acceleration and ample pulling power

• Tuned to accommodate higher loads

• Large drive and driven torque converters maximize engagement area of the thick and strong drive belt for improved heat dissipation and added durability

• High-flow cover helps cool the CVT while providing superb splash protection and waterproofing

• Sheaves with high silicon type material for increased durability

• An open-sided drive pulley offers better cooling for longer belt life

• Offers adjustable belt deflection

Cab Frame Air Intake

• Draws engine air and converter cooling air from the top of the cab frame where there is less dust, so the air filter stays cleaner longer

Torque Converter Air Filter

• Efficient intake cooling fan draws plenty of air into the CVT

• Special air cleaner with easily replaceable filter element cuts torque converter wear by cooling it with filtered air

Four-Wheel Drive with Two-Speed Transfer Case

• Selectable four-wheel drive gives the operator traction options

• Shift to four-wheel drive and low range for maximum traction in adverse conditions, or select two-wheel drive and high range to cut gear wear and increase fuel economy

Dual-Mode Rear Differential

• Dual-mode rear differential can be locked for extra pulling power and maximum traction, or unlocked when traveling across delicate terrain

Electric Power Steering (EPS)

• The EPS system reduces steering effort, especially at low speeds when turning effort is greatest

• Electric motor’s inertia significantly reduces bump steer and kickback to the steering wheel caused by shocks to the wheels for a more comfortable and controlled ride

• Input from vehicle speed and torque sensors determine the amount of steering assistance required from the system’s motor

• No power steering pump means no power loss from the engine

• EPS only operates when the engine is running to keep from draining the battery

Independent Strut-Type Front Suspension

• MacPherson strut long-travel front suspension provide a comfortable ride and excellent load-carrying capability

• Stiffer springs prevent bottoming and increase ground clearance

DeDion Rear Suspension

• Overload-style leaf springs can handle heavy loads, yet provide a smooth ride when the cargo box is empty

• Semi-independent action

Four-Wheel, Self-Adjusting Sealed Hydraulic Drum Brakes

• Powerful, low maintenance four wheel brakes are self-adjusting and feature extra sealing for protection against mud, dust and debris

• Brake drums have an added flange and seal to resist mud and water

Wheels and Tires

• 23-inch tires with stiff sidewalls for an improved ride and added ground clearance

• Rear wheel bearings use two rollers in one large bearing for added durability

• Durable wheel bearings seals on all four wheels have three lips for better protection

Front Hood with Storage Tub

• Large under hood storage tub holds cargo out of sight

• Offers quick, easy access with a push-button latch

• Includes four D-rings for securing loads

Tilting Cargo Bed

• Steel cargo bed can carry up to 800 pounds and tilts for quick unloading

• Thick tailgate panel and secure latching tailgate locking pins reduce vibration and noise, and add durability
