Vehicle Profile

The MULE 4000 TRANS™ side x side is a no-nonsense, two-passenger workhorse set at a great price. A 617cc V-twin engine and 2WD with dual-mode rear differential produce strong and consistent performance. Work faster with a 1,200-lb. towing capacity and an 800-lb. cargo bed capacity. Use the Tran Cab™ system to convert the cabin from a 4-seat crew mover to a 2-seat cargo hauler. A steel front bumper and steel cargo bed make the MULE 4000 TRANS a reliable work companion that’s built to last.
