I have learned that dealers dont give a **** about the customer... as long as they sell a machine, customer service doesnt matter. Although My Kawasaki Mule 2510 Diesel 4x4... is the best machine made, better than Kubota and I own some Kubota tractors.

I pull a 16' set of field harrows with it, a round bale wagon feeder with 5, 4x4 650 lb hay bale in it. let alone through the mud pull equipment. you name it, it does it. the only good thing the dealer told me was that the gas engines SUCK and dont buy one pay the extra and get a Diesel and glad I did cause all I hear is that there **** on this forum.

610 performance is worse than yamaha rhino, better than EZ GO... will pull a full load (28gal watertank/sprayer, 4sacks cement, 2adults & tools) up a very steep 4x4 hill at nearly 4000' altitude, 70F temp - slow but makes it... not sure anything but rhino could do that...

pulled off govenor, top speed is about 35 now (flat ground only)

that's w/bearclaw 25" tires - in stock trim seemed the same on the hill, but 2-3mph slower on the wide open stuff...

if it had more low end grunt, it'd be great... maybe a pipe, big bore kit, etc would be fine...

electrical system is a bit weak also - would be nice to run 4 55watt lts rather than 35W ****, although it seems to run the 120w stereo w/sub woofer & 2k winch just fine...

performance stats are at 3500' spring temps in socal - at sea level it'd be better no doubt, but who lives at sea level w/a ranch?

dealer is another story - morons is being generous at best...

The biggest problem with the Kawasaki Mule is lack of knowledge on the dealers part. There are several things one needs to know about a Mule as well as any other piece of equipment and if the dealer fails to tell the customer it can be costly. If you understand the Mule it is one of the best Utility vehicles on the market.

Now that is a good example. I can tell you right now 610dog should own a 30104x4 not a 610 and throw the heavy duty alternator option on the 3010!

I can tell you stories about dealers who replace heads,head gaskets and numerous other parts just because the mule needs to have the air bled out of the cooling system during dealer prep, before it is delivered to a customer. If you don't the mule will sometimes have a coolent light come on and overheat during customer use. Never run a Mule in 4 wheel drive on hard surface or your asking for trouble. Most all of this is in the owners manual, but sometimes the customer forgets to read it.
