3010, KAWASAKI’S GASOLINE-POWERED FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE
The Kawasaki MULE™ 3010 utility vehicle is similar
in concept to a four-wheel-drive pickup truck, but
its deliberately rugged design and smaller size
enable it to maneuver into places that are normally
inaccessible to full-sized vehicles.
With features that include a gasoline-powered, four-stroke
industrial engine, selectable four-wheel drive,
continuously variable transmission (CVT), automotive-type
controls, bench seat and a tilting cargo bed, the
MULE 3010 off-highway utility vehicle is perfect
for a variety of outdoor work and recreation. Ranchers,
farmers, hunters, law enforcement agencies and owners
of large estates can benefit from the versatility
and durability of the MULE 3010.
2003, the MULE 3010 is available in all-new Aztec
Red, traditional Hunter Green and Advantage® Classic™
camouflage. It features aggressive styling, a rugged
grille, headlights and rounded fenders, and the
body panels of the cab are made of durable, color-infused
plastic to help hide scuffing. The front hood of
the MULE 3010 can be lifted with the touch of a
button to reveal a large storage space, which also
has convenient D-rings to secure cargo. Located
beneath the front grille are winch-ready tabs for
easy winch mounting, and a passenger-side grab rail
is mounted on the cab frame. Plus, two lever latches
make opening and closing the tailgate easy.
Controls on the MULE 3010 are also easy to operate.
The high/low-range, forward/reverse shift lever
and the lever for selecting four-wheel drive operation
are placed within easy reach on the dash. The coolant
temperature warning light is easy to see, and a
push-button control activates 35-watt cat-eye headlights.
Other standard features include an hour meter, fuel
gauge and horn.
A liquid-cooled, four-stroke V-twin engine provides
power for the MULE 3010 utility vehicle. A large
radiator and fan help maintain consistent engine
temperatures, even in hot climates, for increased
durability. A digital electronic ignition enhances
engine response and also helps prevent spark plug
fouling. A double-barrel carburetor accurately meters
fuel and air flow for more complete combustion.
There is a cyclone-type air cleaner and air restriction
gauge to indicate when the filter needs to be serviced.
The fuse box, oil dipstick and oil filler tube are
located under the seat for easy access.
MULE 3010 utilizes Kawasaki’s highly refined Kawasaki
Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS) to create a
wide ratio of pulling power and quick acceleration,
and tension for the KAPS drivebelt is adjustable.
When four-wheel drive operation is selected, a two-speed
transfer case gives the operator the option of a
lower gear ratio for extra pulling power. Dependable,
low-maintenance shaft drive then transfers power
to a dual-mode rear differential that maximizes
traction, yet minimizes ground disturbance when
making tight turns.
chassis of the MULE 3010 features stiff front springs
to maintain optimum ground clearance and the De
Dion rear leaf-spring suspension is designed to
carry heavy loads yet provide a smooth ride when
the cargo bed is empty. Self-adjusting hydraulic
drum brakes at all four wheels ensure progressive
stopping power and have extra flanges with upgraded
seals to keep out mud and water. Rear wheel bearings
are highly durable and have special seals for better
protection from water. Also, 23-inch tires provide
a comfortable ride as well as maximum traction over
a variety of surfaces.
The MULE 3010 can carry 803 pounds in its steel
cargo bed and can tow 1,200 pounds. Those who want
to customize their MULE 3010 utility vehicle can
choose from a vast array of accessories available
through Kawasaki MULE dealers. Consumers can also
