Standard Features

Key Features
 Powerful and torquey digital fuel injected V-twin engine  
 Modern styling and low operating costs  
 User friendly dashboard and controls  
 Electric Power Steering System (EPS)  
 4-wheel drive  
Liquid-cooled V-twin Engine
 4-stroke, 617 cc, industrial V-twin engine produces exceptional torque at low engine speeds  
 Modern 4-stroke design with overhead valves for efficient running and good fuel economy  
 Large-capacity radiator and fan maintain consistent engine temperatures, even in hot climates  
 Rubber engine mounts minimize vibration, noise and wear to maximize operation comfort and diminish fatigue  
Digital Fuel Injection
 Computer-controlled fuel injection system automatically compensates for atmospheric pressure, air and engine temperature for easy, prompt engine starting under a variety of conditions  
 Automatic fast idle speed control eliminates the need for a choke, allowing the operator to drive off immediately after a cold engine start  
 Throttle bodies feature sub-throttle valves for optimum performance and drivability. The sub-throttles are located behind the main throttle valves and are controlled by the ECU for smooth throttle response.  
 Automatic digital ignition system helps ensure smooth, efficient operation  
 Maximum engine speed is controlled by the ECU, eliminating the need for a mechanical governor  
 Offers easy engine operation and reduced maintenance requirements  
Cab Frame Air Intake
 Draws engine air and converter cooling air from the top of the cab frame where there is less dust, so the air filter stays cleaner longer  
Environmentally Friendly Emissions
 DFI® precision reduces fuel consumption and cuts exhaust emissions  
 Positive crankcase ventilation system sends blow-by gases to the intake tract to be burned in the engine  
 Muffler features a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor  
Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS)
 Fully automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) features forward high / low and reverse, and helps keep the engine in the right operating rpm for a variety of vehicle speeds, loads or terrain  
 The CVT has a wide spread of drive ratios for quick acceleration and ample pulling power  
 An open-sided drive pulley cools better for longer belt life  
 Offers adjustable belt deflection  
Electric Power Steering (EPS)
 The EPS system reduces steering effort, especially at low speeds when turning effort is greatest  
 The electric motor’s inertia significantly reduces bump steer and kickback to the steering wheel caused by shocks to the wheels for a more comfortable and controlled ride  
 Input from vehicle speed and torque sensors determine the amount of steering assistance required from the system’s motor  
 No power steering pump, so there is no power loss from the engine  
 EPS only operates when the engine is running to keep from draining the battery  
4-wheel drive with 2-speed Transfer Case
 Selectable 4-wheel drive gives the operator traction options  
 Shift to 4-wheel drive and low range for maximum traction in adverse conditions, or select 2-wheel drive and high range to cut gear wear and increase fuel economy  
Dual Mode Differential
 Dual-mode rear differential can be locked for extra pulling power and maximum traction, or unlocked when traversing delicate terrain  
Independent Strut-type Front Suspension
 MacPherson strut long-travel front suspension provide a comfortable ride and excellent load-carrying capability  
 Stiffer springs prevent bottoming and increase ground clearance  
DeDion Rear Suspension
 Overload-style leaf springs can handle heavy loads, yet provide a smooth ride when the cargo box is empty  
 Semi-independent action  
4-wheel, Self-adjusting Sealed Hydraulic Drum Brakes
 4-wheel brakes are self-adjusting and feature extra sealing for protection against mud, dust, and debris  
 The brake drums have an added flange and seal to keep out mud and water  
 Low maintenance and powerful  
Wheels and Tires
 23-in. tires with stiff sidewalls improve the ride and add ground clearance  
 Rear wheel bearings use 2 rollers in one large bearing for added durability  
 Wheel bearing seals on all 4 wheels have 3 lips for better protection  
Front Hood with Storage Tub
 Deeper under hood storage tub holds cargo out of sight  
 Offers quick, easy access with a push-button latch  
 Includes 4 D-rings for securing loads  
Tilting Cargo Bed
 Steel cargo bed can carry up to 800 pounds and tilts for quick unloading  
 Thick tailgate panel and secure latching tailgate locking pins reduce vibration and noise, and add durability  
Rugged and Capable
 Bodywork is a rugged, modern design with truck-like styling  
 Can tow up to 1,200 pounds with optional Kawasaki Accessory draw bar  
 Meets Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS) requirements for wheeled tractors under SAE J1194, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.4, and 7.5, and also meets FMVSS 216 roof crush resistance requirement  
 Bench seat can carry up to 3  
 Durable chassis includes winch-ready mounts to simplify winch installation  
Simple Maintenance
 The oil dipstick and filler tube are accessed under the seat  
 Cyclone-type engine air cleaner has meter to indicate when to replace the filter  
 An automotive-style fuse box is convenient and uses blade-type fuses  
Cab Features
 The 2WD / 4WD lever is mounted on the dash for easy access
