DIESEL MULE: MOST DEPENDABLE WORKHORSE
Like the PRO-FXT petrol model counterpart the six-seater PRO-DXT EPS offers “Diesel economy”, “Durability” and “Comfort and Convenience”. The diesel model was designed primarily for work applications, where their high-torque diesel engine will deliver excellent performance and allow on-site fuel compatibility. With a greater focus on cargo carrying and transportation, the PRO-DXT EPS can be transferred from a three seater features a spacious cargo bed, to a handy six-seater with ample room, making it the workhorse of choice for customers who need to transport staff and/or haul material.
The Mule PRO-DXT's combination of Diesel economy, durability, comfort and convenience make it the industry's most dependable outdoor partner. The PRO-DXT features Electric Power Steering, seats up to six adults with a ROPS approved Cab Frame and 3-point seat belts for added peace of mind.
POWERFUL ENGINE: INLINE TRIPLE
Enabling fuel compatibility amongst workplace machines, the MULE PRO-DXT is well suited for use in working environments where diesel is the primary fuel, such as in agriculture, underground mining, inside factories or on military bases and construction sites.
Combined with their rugged chassis, these hardy machines also represent practical choices for more traditional utility vehicle users who simply wish to opt for the lower operating costs, durability and reliability that a diesel-powered vehicle offers. Whether for industrial or general usage, the diesel MULE meet the needs of a broad range of utility vehicle customers. The large 30 litre fuel tank enables long intervals between fill-ups on work sites.
EXTENDED RIDING RANGE
A 30 litre fuel tank offers the range to enable long forays with family and friends. Enough fuel to travel well into the bush to find that perfect camping spot and to get back out again.
SEATING FOR SIX ADULTS
If cargo capacity is your greatest priority, then the MULE PRO-DXT is your partner of choice. Its cargo bed is the largest in its class, ensuring you can carry more, and carry it more easily. Cargo bed dimensions LWH are 1,089 mm x 1,363 mm x 279 mm in 3-person mode and a handy 560 mm x 1,363 x 279 mm in 6-person model, its long, flat design makes it easy to load from three sides. Cargo bed load capacity is 453 kg 3-person mode or 158 kg in 6-person mode.
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
Front and rear disc brakes ensure strong, sure stopping power. The hydraulic disc system offers predictable performance, delivering brake power that matches input at the brake pedal.
Front Discs are 212mm and gripped by two-piston (27mm) calipers.
Rear Discs are 212mm with single 34mm piston caliper. Semi-metallic brake pads offer the right balance between braking power and long life.
The MULE PRO-DXT model offers a number of comfort and convenience features to ensure that everyone enjoys the ride. The PRO-DXT has low vibration and excellent bump absorption when tackling obstacle on the trail and it runs quietly.

Kawasaki MULE side x sides are famous for their durability and the MULE PRO-DXT is no exception. Built to last in punishing conditions, Kawasaki's flagship MULE also looks tough thanks to the rugged styling. The rugged frame construction ensures great durability as well as superb handling. The frame festures a ladder-type construction and is built from square tubes of high quality steel. High tensile steel has been used in area of high-load (like the suspension mounting plates).
After undergoing extensive stiffness balance testing, the frame offers good lateral and torsional stiffness. The right amount of chassis flex to handle the shock of off-road work while maintaining a high level of ride comfort.
ROPS approved cab frame and and inertia reel seat belts are standard for added peace of mind. Always wear an approved helmet and read the owners manuals.
In addition to the tough engine and rugged frame construction, numerous features add to the PRO-DXT's strong build:
Water-resistant engine backing plate, spark plug cover, CVT duct layout and differential breather layout are all designed to minimise the ingress of water.
Front and rear wheel housings keep mud, dirt and water from getting into the engine compartment and away from essential components.
Efficient air cleaner design, including a labyrinth layout, rubber seal and paper filter element helps keep the engine free from dust
High quality stainless steel exhaust system
Larger gauge mounting bolts used at the A-arm pivots and suspension upper and lower mounts were chosen specifically for their contribution to suspension durability.
Fuel tank is positioned well away from the wheels to prevent it from being hit by flying debris, and features a guard for further protection.
Designed to reflect the tough construction and strong performance, the MULE PRO-DXT features rugged, no-nonsense styling similar to that found on hard working utility vehicles.
Wide stable stance
Steel front bumpers
Newly designed cast aluminium wheels.
Clean dashboard design includes switches for the lights, selectable 4WD, rear differential lock.
Door decals are colour matched to the bodywork
Steering wheel has a stepless range of approximately 40o allowing drivers to set the position to suit personal preference. This can also be used to lift the steering wheel out of the way to facilitate getting in and out of the vehicle. The thickly cushioned steering wheel contributes to comfort as well as the high quality feel of the PRO-DXT.
Two DC sockets are integrated into the dashboard provide power supply (up to 120W) for accessory items or
personal device charging.
On the PRO-DXT two more DC sockets are available in the rear (behind the driver's seat). The second power source can also provide up to 120W for rear passenger use. Additional 12V DC wiring harness connectors can be found, 1 in the front behind the dash and 1 at the rear right hand side under the tray.
BRIGHT HEADLIGHTS AND LARGE TYRES
Dual 55/60W headlights cut a bright path through the dark for clear
visibility on night rides.
Auxiliary LED headlights are standard on the PRO-DXT LE model, adding
even more lighting power.
The MULE PRO-DXT LE is equipped with 26" tyres on 12" rims. The large 26" radial tyres easily overcome obstacles and contribute to the PRO-DXT's excellent rough road handling.
Multi function display built into the dash is standard on the PRO-DXT. Some features include:
Digital fuel gauge
dual trip meters
2WD / 4WD indicator
Water temperature warning indicator
Passenger side glove box provides enclosed storage for small items. Three dashboard pockets (left, centre, right) provide a handy place to put small items. The centre pocket is large enough to accommodate the accessory audio system.
Two drink holders are built into the bodywork of the front dashboard. An accessory bin can be fitted under the front bench seat for convenient covered storage.
Under the driver's seat is a new large storage compartment with a steel guard underneath to help prevent damage by rocks etc.
The optional accessory bin can also be fitted under the front bench seat for convenient extra covered storage.
ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS)
Kawasaki's high grade electric power steering (EPS) system works best when you need it most: at extreme slow speed and when stopped. turning the wheel causes a signal to be sent to the EPS ECU, initiating assistance. At slow speed or when stopped, assistance is greatest; assistance is reduced as vehicle speed increases to ensure stable handling. The EPS system also enhances the ride comfort and control by acting as a damping system.
The electric system works immediately, without time lag, when the engine is first started. The EPS system does not rely on an oil pump, therefore there is no engine power loss and fuel efficiency is uncompromised.
2WD/4WD EASY CHANGE
Electrically selectable 2WD / 4WD and dual-mode rear differential system to allow easy changing between drive systems to suit changing terrain and applications.
Flipping the switches causes the systems to engage instantly, ensuring the rider has full control of when 4WD or the rear differential lock is activated.
Dual-mode rear differential provides maximum traction when in locked mode and minimises ground clearance when unlocked.
HANDY UNDER-SEAT STORAGE
Under the drivers seat is a handy storage compartment with a steel plate underneath for added protection.
