Leading things of is a liquid-cooled 617cc V-twin engine that is managed by a digital Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and is fed by a fuel injection system, compensating for variations in atmospheric pressure, engine, and air temperature. This allows the Mule 4010 to have consistent starts and ultra-precise fuel metering, two traits that only reduces fuel consumption, but also limits unwarranted emissions. The ECU also regulates top engine speed, which means the Mule doesn’t need a mechanical governor.
The Mule’s power is transmitted through a dependable, low-maintenance shaft drive system to a dual-mode rear differential that can be locked to maximize traction or unlocked to improve handling and minimize ground disturbance when negotiating tight turns.
