    Thought you were going to see something like a donkey, right? ;)

    Silliness aside, this is my Kawasaki MULE 2510. Its a 4WD and has a winch. I use it around our property for logging, yard work, etc. We live in a remote rural area and it would be a real pain in the neck to have to haul tools, etc. all over the place on foot.

    Nice rig. On a big property, a vehicle like this is almost a necessity. What year is it?

    I saw some of those in the high desert and really thought that was a great vehicle. My friend had a ranch up that way and I thought that mule would be a great addition, but they ended up getting a broken down Jeep instead. For my two cents, would have gotten a mule in a heartbeat.

    Its a 1999 model, but only has 294 engine hours on it. I got a good deal on it from a lady that was moving out of state and no longer needed it.

    I LOVE IT !
    For living in the country, and especially on a farm or homestead, this vehicle is SO perfect ! It is just so useful for almost every task around the homestead. It is somewhere in between having a four-wheeler, and having a small jeep type vehicle.
    I used to have an old early 60s vintage IH Scout, and I just loved that old rig. I used it for hauling and dragging, and about everything else around our small farm.
    The dogs loved riding in the back, nothing could hurt that old thing, and I even taught my stepdaughter to drive with it. We went on the back roads up near mt. St. Helens, and she learned to shift using a real clutch, and even to start on an incline. That took her a while, but the old Scout was a patient teacher.

    I think a Mule would have to be an ideal addition , and also be a lot of fun to use.

    I realize I am going to date myself, but too remember the Harvester Scouts. Neat rigs. :)

    Not sure of the year but did you see the picture of the Scout I posted in this thread? http://gearheadcentral.com/index.php?threads/car-picture-thread.3473/#.UjDw1T8tIvw I think I have only past two in the last couple years around here.

    One of those would be really awesome to own. Must be great on your large piece of land, especially if there are really cool trails nearby.

    Alas, there aren't a lot of good trails on our property. It is, however, a handy tool. I moved about a cord of firewood over hilly country this weekend. I wouldn't have wanted to do that with the wheelbarrow. ;)

    Being a Subaru owner I appreciate all things 4WD and Japanese. The name is quite appropriate as well.
