Announced last year, the two new Kawasaki MULE PRO-DXT and PRO-DX have now arrived in dealers.
Designed primarily for work applications, their high-torque powerful 993 cm3 four-stroke diesel engines deliver excellent performance and allow on-site fuel compatibility.They produce 18kW (24PS) of power and 52 Nm of torque and have a towing capacity of 907kg. Fuel capacity is 30 litres and bright headlights are complemented by auxiliary LED lamps.
Hydraulic disc brakes are now fitted as standard to the front and rear and double wishbone suspension enable the wheels to drive over obstacles with minimum effect on the chassis.
The Trans Cab system of the PRO-DXT enables the flexibility to maximise either cargo space or people-moving potential. It can be changed from two-person mode to four-person mode in just one minute and by one person. In two-person mode, the cargo bed capacity is 453kg and in four-person mode is 158kg.
With a greater focus on cargo carrying performance, the PRO-DX features a long, flat cargo bed – the largest in the MULE fleet in fact – which is easy to load from three sides, making it the workhorse of choice for customers who need to haul material. It has a dry weight of under 816kg which enables access to most weight-restricted areas.
The new MULE PRO represents the culmination of over 25 years’ experience in the side x side market in the UK. New from the ground up and designed with our customers in mind, it incorporates many features such as independent all-round suspension, selectable four-wheel drive, disc brakes together with unparalleled comfort for the driver and passengers.
The PRO-DX has an RRP of £11,129 + VAT and the PRO-DXT is £12,329 + VAT.
Simon Riches, Kawasaki UK Product Manager for ATV and MULE, said: “We’ve had a fantastic response to the announcement of the new MULE machines and we’ve been and and down the country exhibiting the models at shows – with fantastic feedback.
“Our dealers have been taking advanced orders since the new machines were announced which is great and now they’ll be taking delivery of their new MULE machines. The MULE brand is synonymous with rugged durability and capability, the PRO-DXT and PRO-DX promise to be reliable workhorses.”
