TESTED | VIDEO | 2023 KAWASAKI MULE PRO-MX SE
We got our hands on a 2023 Kawasaki Mule PRO-MX SE and have been using it for all sorts of jobs on the farm. Check out what we thought of it.
The Kawasaki Mule PRO-MX SE is Kawasaki’s top of the line, mid-capacity machine. It sits above the Mule SX range and below the Mule FX range. The Kawasaki Mule PRO-MX SE runs a fuel-injected, 695 cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine which pumps out 35kw of power and 58nm of torque. It runs a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and has Electronically selectable 2WD and 4WD, with a dual-mode rear differential and of course, a diff. lock.
It has double wishbone suspension front and rear with 218mm and 232mm of suspension travel, respectably. It has 25-inch tyres, 270mm of ground clearance, it weighs 736kg, carries 36 litres of fuel, has a turning radius of 4.2m. For work, it is capable of carrying 317kg in the tub and 680kg on the tow ball.
It has Speed-sensitive Electric Power Steering (EPS), a two-person bench seat, Halogen and LED headlights, Four-wheel disc brakes and independent parking brake, a plastic roof, half windscreen and cast aluminium wheels. It also comes standard with a factory-installed 1,361 kg winch with remote control and premium special edition colour and graphics, because this is the SE model.
The Mule PRO-MX SE looks great when you first lay eyes on it. The silver colour way stands out while the cast aluminium wheels look more rec than ag. All this can be yours in Australia for $19,874. That’s great value for money!
We put it to work on our cattle farm and used it for mustering, spraying, towing and just general farm duties. It was more than capable at doing everything we could throw at it but the highlight for us was the power steering and the engine. The steering was incredibly light and accurate while the engine felt much stronger than it is.
