I have a 2015 PRO FXT CAMO. I love it This is my first ever wheeler. It does everything I wanted. I bought a plastic roof, a glass windshield, rear bumper and the axle protectors. The rear bumper is a joke it bent when I backed into a one inch sapling.. Other than that I really love my MULE.

I am looking for a manual windshield wiper for my PRO FXT, I bought the Glass windshield that is part of the Cab Enclosure. Anyone have any info on where to buy one for the Mule? I have looked at hundreds and none of them have the correct length of arm or the wiper blade.

I've had my pro fxt eps for a little over a year now. Still impresses me every day. I'm on a dog hunting lease where most members have jacked up Polaris rangers due to the deep mud we have. After continually working on my 2007 Ranger I decided to give the mule a try. This thing is a beast. Other than 27" tires on 14s it is bone stock. I rarely have to use low gear or even 4 wheel drive while the rangers are going into low 4 all the time. Unless it's a super bad hole I cruise right through in high gear with the rear diff locked. It also hauls 5/6 grown men with all their gear and deer with no problem. I've yet to encounter an issue. Headlights are a little dim but I'm putting in LED bulbs shortly to hopefully address that. I've also added the Plano underseat storage box. I've have other mule models in the past and they were tough as nails too, but this thing is awesome.

I've had mine sine January - '19 PRO FXT with the power steering. Added a roof, 4" lift and winch at the dealer. Roof is janky as hell, but it works for now. Brush guard, front and rear light bars, swapped out my stock headlights for some LED's (best upgrade so far, and it was about $40), underseat storage, tires, green LED cab lighting and will do the hood scoop fairly soon. I have a winch and davit crane on the rear headache rack to help load deer into the bed.

I had the steel wheels, but dumped those for some Polaris takeoffs for my mud tires. Drilled the lug holes out so they would fit, makes keeping the brake system and discs clean much easier. My other tires are all terrain on some wheels I bought off of Amazon - use those during the summer and cruising around the neighborhood so I don't put wear on my mud tires.

I had one issue - my CPU had a glitch. Dealer warrantied it, no cost. That 3 year warranty is well worth it and one of the main drivers in going with a Mule over a Ranger or other brand. Plus I love the fact I can go from a front and back seat to just a front seat without changing the wheel base.

Cons - no rear bumper, tailgate is pretty chinchy and doesn't have a lock open ability, and rear tires could be pushed further back to give better wheel clearance. I have though of swapping the rear A-arms, but seems about 50/50 on people that have done those and end up with problems on the rear CV joints and axles, so I'm holding off.

I bought a '19 Pro FXT LE over a year ago to use on the farm. I have used it for everything from hauling newborn calves in the back in the spring to pulling sleds for the kids in the winter. It is the smoothest riding UTV I've ever been on: the suspension, EPS, and power curve complement each other nicely. I have found it to have plenty of power, and tons of passenger and storage space. It's not a go-fast machine, but I am able to cruise at 35 mph on county roads. Aside from the roof, the build quality is great...nothing feels cheap, and more importantly, not broken since I have owned it.

Love mine. I also use it around my Wise Acre Ranch. "Ranch" is 5 acres of garden pond and do what I want. I would've opted for the FX as I rarely haul more than one passenger but always fill up the bed. But I got a really good deal on a hardly used one.

Just wondering it there are any other FXT owners out there an how they like the machine.
I bought one a few weeks ago and am VERY impressed with it so far. It is a massive leap for Kawasaki and makes the Mule a real competitor. Hope to see others on the boards and see some discussions started now that they are hitting the market!
I have had mine for little over one year. I am extremley satisfied with it. I bought it for fun and has since become a real work horse.

Anyone done any research yet to see what k&n fits and any cross reference numbers for oil filter
Fuel Filter 49019-0013 Kawasaki K&N KA-6201
Air Filter 11013-1290 Kawasaki WIX 46449

The K&N lets in a lot more dirt though, so keep that in mind. I ended up putting my K&N on the outside and kept my paper filter in the main filter housing. Keeps the paper filter clean a lot longer, no reduction in power and basically acts like a filter sock would on a regular washable filter. Dealer was strongly against using a K&N only air filter.

Schmellba99, How did you attach the piano hinge?
The attached .pdf is a great resource that has all kinds of information. Hinge is in there, actually a couple of different designs. I went with the piano hinge - like the look of it more, prefer the continuous hinge over the other design. I didn't bend the brackets like they did though - welded some up to eliminate the sandwich portion of it, also spot welded the hinge to the main bar as well to eliminate some of the screws.

My mule. Have been really happy with it so far.The davit crane that is on the back headache rack isn't the same anymore - still have the winch there, but just a pulley - really helps with loading things into the bed when I'm out at the lease. Like deer, see below.
