Dealer Insights



With its more dirt-worthy design, the 2012 Mule™ 610 4x4 XC is meant for those who like to venture a bit farther from the jobsite. If the XC designation makes you think 'cross country,' well, you'd be right on target, for this Mule looks like it's had a serious dose of Kawasaki Teryx™ off-road DNA injected into its flanks.

At a Glance...
  • Extra-large 26-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 radial tires mounted on 12-inch wheels offer substantial off-road capability
  • Despite its 1.3-inch wider track than standard Mule 610, the XC still fits in a full-size pickup.
  • Large tires offer extra ground clearance – now 8.1 inches – for excellent rough-terrain capabilities
  • Standard skid plates for the front differential, engine and rear diff add protection and greatly reduce the chances of getting hung up on obstacles
  • All-weather seat cover provides a secure perch for the driver and passenger
  • Sporty graphics give the XC a bold look to match its mission
  • A sport steering wheel from the Teryx RUV enhances control and appearance
  • Long front and rear suspension arms provide superb off-road performance
  • Optimum brake pedal ratio, strong master-cylinder mount and high-performance brake shoes provide substantial braking performance
  • Stain and scratch-resistant special black-texture paint in the cargo bed enhances the XC's looks and durability
  • Tailgate has a simple release for easy opening and closing
Fan-Cooled, Single-Cylinder Engine
  • The Mule's simple and lightweight 401cc four-stroke single is compact, lightweight and extremely durable
  • Overhead valve design provides maximum efficiency, while the XC's carburetor helps provide excellent fuel economy
  • Fan cooling helps the engine maintain an ideal operating temperature
  • Cab frame air intake draws clean, uncontaminated air for the engine from the top of the cab
  • High-mount exhaust design keeps the system dry and out of harm's way
  • An oil-temperature warning lamp linked to a crankcase sensor help prevent overheating
Easy Starting
  • The choke opens the throttle during starting so the accelerator pedal does not need to be depressed
  • Stepping on the brake pedal allows the engine to be started in gear
Gear-Driven Engine Balancer
  • A rotating balance weight moves opposite the piston, dramatically reducing vibration and minimizing noise and wear for increased comfort and reduced fatigue
Environmentally Friendly Emissions
  • Carburetor settings reduce exhaust emissions, a good thing for the environment
  • Positive crankcase ventilation system recycles blow-by gases to the intake tract where they're burned in the engine
  • A USFS-approved spark arrestor in the muffler greatly reduces fire hazard
  • California models have a check valve on the fuel tank/charcoal canister connector hose to prevent gasoline from entering the canister when operating on inclines or over rough terrain
Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS)
  • A simple and lightweight CVT (continuously variable transmission) is fully automatic and keeps engine speed in the most efficient range for any selected vehicle speed, load or terrain
  • Fully automatic transmission features selectable 2 or 4 wheel drive
  • An open-sided drive pulley cools better for longer belt life
  • Belt deflection can be easily adjusted by changing the shim thickness of the adjuster bolt located on the outside of the driven converter
  • A die-cast aluminum belt converter has high silicon content for compactness and light weight, and offers excellent toughness and durability
  • The belt converter case is sealed to keep out contaminants
  • A long-wearing ATV-style double cog CVT belt provides long wear and minimal maintenance
  • The belt converter's air cleaner cover uses a clip-type clamp for easier maintenance, and a revised sealing method provides an improved seal
  • A maintenance-free sealed bearing unit is used between the front and rear driveshafts
Dual Mode Differential
  • Locked mode provides maximum traction in difficult conditions
  • Unlocked mode decreases turning radius and minimizes ground disturbance – great for use on grass
Rack and Pinion Steering
  • Ackerman rack-and-pinion steering provides precise, accurate handling and a small turning radius that facilitates working in tight quarters
  • Rack-and-pinion system is durable, simple, easy to maintain and helps reduce tire wear
MacPherson Strut Independent Front Suspension
  • Long-travel front suspension serves up a comfortable ride, excellent load-carrying capability and excellent terrain ability
  • Simple, rugged single A-arm design provides a tight turning radius for extra maneuverability
Unit Swingarm Rear Suspension
  • Unique design places engine and rear wheels on a sub-frame with a mid-point pivot that isolates vibration for a smooth ride
  • Mule 610 4x4 XC's long-travel rear end can handle heavy loads, yet provides a comfortable ride even with an empty cargo bed
  • The front grille includes space for mounting a 3,000-pound capacity winch
  • Compact, lightweight and easy to transport to the job, the Mule fits in the bed of a full-sized pickup
  • Durable plastic body panels resist dents, and the Mule 610 4x4 XC's Super Black finish is molded in for long-lasting good looks
Safety Equipment
  • Fully meets SAE Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS) requirements for wheeled tractors under SAE J1194, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.4, and 7.5, and FMVSS 216
  • Two seat belts enhance safety
  • Speed limited to 25 mph keeps the Mule well within its performance envelope
Ample Storage
  • The front hood opens up to reveal 12.6 gallons of sealed storage space
  • A passenger side glove box is perfect for small item storage
  • Cup holders located at each side of the front hood by the dash keep hydration close at hand
Tilting Cargo Bed
  • A steel cargo bed covered in non-slip paint can carry up to 400 pounds, and tilts for maintenance and cleaning.
  • A Teryx-style tailgate with simple release mechanisms makes loading and unloading easy.
Simple Maintenance
  • A crankcase oil-level dipstick and dual-element air cleaner make maintaining the Mule quick and convenient
Cab Features
  • An automotive-style dash features easy-reach controls
  • A standard-equipment hour meter makes maintenance intervals easy to track
  • Fuel gauge and oil temperature warning light keep track of essential fluids
  • Gear selector for High, Low, Neutral and Reverse couldn't be simpler
  • A differential locking lever and convenient parking brake are simple to find and operate
  • Powerful and stylish 35w headlights let the work day continue after dark
