The MULE PRO-FXT 1000 models are full-sized, high-capacity side by sides that features our exclusive 3- to 6-passenger Trans Cab system. With a reliable 999 cc Kawasaki built engine, these dependable side by sides are ready to transport heavy loads or transport the entire crew without breaking a sweat. Work harder and smarter with the dependable help of the MULE PRO-FXT 1000.
To transform from six-person mode to three-person mode:
1. Release the seat latches and lift the cargo wall struts to disengage the cargo wall securing mechanism.
2. Fold the seat bottom out of the way and slide the cargo wall forward.
3. Lower the cargo wall struts and reattached the seat latches to secure the cargo wall.
Adding to the MULE PRO-FXT 1000’s versatility, Kawasaki’s unique Trans Cab system offers the ability to maximise carrying capacity with the extended cargo bed in three-person mode or maximise personnel transport in six-person mode. The system enables transformations to be done with one person, in about a minute.
The compact litre-class engine delivers both high power and high torque, as well as an increased top speed. The mild character, complemented by a CVT (continuously variable transmission), offers driver-friendly throttle response and delivers smooth acceleration and deceleration.
Like the models in the MULE PRO Series, the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 offers a 453 kg cargo bed capacity*, and a 907 kg towing capacity.
Ground clearance 295 mm or greater reduces the chances of the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 models scraping their bottom, which translates to greater accessibility and increased ride comfort.
Kawasaki’s first self-levelling suspension helps keep the vehicle level when carrying a heavy load. When a load compresses the rear suspension, a built-in mechanical pump system automatically pumps up the suspension as the vehicle moves to return the rear of the vehicle to its optimum level. Spreading the weight more evenly benefits both handling and braking performance.
The MULE PRO-FXT 1000 improves on the acclaimed engine and chassis performance of the MULE PRO Series models with a new, larger-displacement Kawasaki-built engine and a sturdy chassis augmented with longer-travel suspension, increased ground clearance and (on the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 LE Ranch Edition) Kawasaki’s first self-levelling rear suspension.
Compact 35 W outer headlights are complemented by LED inner headlights (16.0 W / 9.4 W). The quadruple headlamps cut a bright path.
On the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 LE Ranch Edition, the grille cover is painted to match the bodywork as is the panelling around the headlights, creating a high-end image.
Clean dashboard design includes switches for the headlights, selectable 4WD and rear differential lock (and for the winch on the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 LE Ranch Edition). Five (four for the Ranch model) spaces for additional accessory switches have been prepared.
On the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 LE, black cast aluminium wheels add a high-quality touch. Cast aluminium wheels with machined finishing give the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 LE Ranch Edition an even higher-class look.
The MULE PRO-FXT 1000 models feature a front end based on that of the MULE PRO-FXR, including quad headlights. The serious looks reflect the new models’ ability to perform at work sites and in moderate recreation environments, while a silver Kawasaki emblem on all models and painted parts on the MULE PRO-FXT 1000 LE Ranch Edition add a high-end, premium image.
In addition to its tough engine and rugged frame construction, numerous features (like considerations to prevent the ingress of water and mud, efficient air cleaner design with snorkel intake, etc) add to the MULE PRO-FXT 1000’s strong build.
The frame offers a good balance between lateral and torsional stiffness. This delivers high durability while allowing just the right amount of chassis flex to be able to handle the shocks of off-highway riding, ensuring a high level of ride comfort.
Kawasaki MULE side x sides are famous for their strength and durability, and the new MULE PRO-FXT 1000 models are no exception. Like other MULE side x sides in Kawasaki’s line-up, these new flagship series models were built to last in a variety of conditions and are backed by a three-year Kawasaki STRONG limited warranty.
Double-wishbone suspension is used both front and rear to enable each of the wheels to drive over obstacles with minimum effect on the chassis. Longer wheel travel (F: 279 mm; R: 256 mm) contributes to the increased ground clearance as well as ride comfort.
A wide-body chassis enables a roomy interior space that offers the shoulder and legroom for six adults—three abreast on each of the bench seats.
Kawasaki’s high-grade electric power steering (EPS) system is speed sensitive, offering light steering effort at low speed, while reducing assistance as vehicle speed increases to ensure responsive steering.
Drivers can set the position of the tilt-adjustable steering wheel to suit their preference, as well as lift it out of the way to facilitate getting in and out of the vehicle.
Easy access to oil filter (and oil dipstick) and air-cleaner filter greatly facilitates maintenance chores. Further, the improved dust resistance of the new intake duct system results in longer maintenance intervals.
Class-leading comfort has been a hallmark of Kawasaki’s hard-working side x sides. The MULE PRO-FXT 1000 models deliver on that front, with the new, longer-travel suspension further contributing to ride comfort offered by the composed chassis and roomy interior. Creature comforts like EPS, tilt-steering, handy storage spaces and numerous cup holders are complemented by improved maintenance-related elements.
