The Kawasaki Mule UTV is known for its ruggedness and dependability, which makes it a perfect candidate for fitting with one of our fire or EMS rescue skids from KIMTEK CORPORATION, based in Orleans, VT. Our guide exists to help customers who haven’t purchased a UTV yet but are still interested in our UTV skids.
We don’t sell UTVs, but we can help you find a dealer and work with them to have your skid unit installed before or after you take delivery.
Why Choose a Kawasaki Mule UTV?
The Kawasaki Mule enjoys a reputation of being a go-anywhere/do-anything machine capable of handling a wide range of off-road environments. So, it’s no surprise that the Mule’s rugged construction, reliable drivetrain, and versatile configurations make it perfect for off-road rescue duty.
It also helps that Kawasaki offers the longest warranty for its side-x-side UTVs, at 36 months compared to 12 or 18 months for other brands.
Kawasaki is well-known today for its motorcycles and watercraft, but the brand’s origins stretch as far back as the late 1870s, when founder Shozo Kawasaki first established Kawasaki Tsukiji Shipyard in Tokyo. The company itself would flourish into the giant it is today.
The Kawasaki Mule UTV’s own origins came from a simple cocktail napkin drawing in the mid-1980s. The idea for a simple four-wheel utility vehicle that could seat two people while boasting a higher payload than an ATV eventually evolved into the 1988 Mule 1000. The Mule lineup would go on to gain more features, more capability, and unparalleled versatility.
Features and Options
The Kawasaki Mule family gives buyers a dizzying array of options, including several four-stroke engines ranging in displacement size and cylinder count to cab configurations that can seat up to six people.
The innovative Trans Cab system and its tool-less design lets you quickly transform your Kawasaki Mule UTV from a two-passenger cargo hauler to a four-passenger crew mover. Other impressive features include electric power steering, available 4×4 capability, and up to 1,000 pounds of payload hauling capacity.
