SMOOTH SURFACE UTILITY VEHICLE
Created for work on smooth or delicate surfaces,
the full-sized Kawasaki MULE™ 3020 utility vehicle
rides on wide, smooth-tread tires and is well suited
for golf course maintenance. Like its sibling, the
MULE 3000, it features a steel, tilting cargo bed,
bench seat, automatic transmission and automotive-type
The MULE 3020 features aggressive styling, a rugged
grille and rounded fenders. The body panels of the
cab are made of durable, color-infused plastic to
help hide scuffing. The front hood of the MULE 3020
can be lifted with the touch of a button to reveal
a large storage space, which also has convenient
tie-down loops to secure cargo. Located beneath
the front grille are winch-ready tabs, so mounting
a winch is made easy, and a passenger-side grab
rail is mounted on the cab frame. Two lever latches
make opening and closing the tailgate easy, and
sound-deadening insulation around the engine helps
to keep the MULE 3020 operating quietly.
Controls on the MULE 3020 are simple and easy to
use. The forward/reverse shift lever is conveniently
located 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.
An industrial, liquid-cooled four-stroke V-twin
engine provides power for the MULE 3020. A large
radiator and fan help keep engine temperatures under
control, even in hot climates. A digital electronic
ignition enhances engine response and also helps
to prevent spark plug fouling. A double-barrel carburetor
accurately meters fuel and airflow for more complete
combustion. There is a cyclone-type air cleaner
plus air restriction gauge to indicate when the
filter needs to be cleaned or replaced. The fuse
box, oil dipstick and oil filler tube are located
under the seat for easy to access.
MULE 3020 utilizes the Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive
System, a highly refined, continuously-variable
transmission, to create a wide ratio of pulling
power and quick acceleration. Dependable, low-maintenance
shaft drive transfers power to a dual-mode differential
that can be locked to maximize traction or unlocked
to minimize ground disturbance when making tight
The chassis of the MULE 3020 features stiff front
springs to maintain optimum ground clearance and
the De Dion rear leaf-spring suspension is designed
to carry heavy loads, yet provides a smooth, comfortable
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. To minimize
ground disturbance, the MULE 3020 rides on smooth-tread
Like the other MULE 3000-series gasoline-powered
utility vehicles, the MULE 3020 can carry 803 pounds
in its steel cargo bed and can tow 1,200 pounds.

through Kawasaki MULE dealers. Consumers can also

Available in Hunter Green, the MULE 3020 has a suggested

12-month, unlimited mileage warranty that can be
extended up to three years.
