The ranger is probably the better of the 2. Im not a kawasaki fan at all, the mules Ive been around were little, underpowered, and not all that great where the ranger is way better imo.

The mule is basically a golf cart, its like comparing apples to oranges... For a utv, go for the ranger....

But, I wouldn't say all kawi autos are gutless, ever ride a brute? They are FUN!!! lol

Its about as under powered as a golf cart, and rides like one too...lol They are a great work horse, don't think it would do to well in a swamp, if I remember right they sit pretty low, and are heavy...

yeah they sit low and the sraight axle. the ranger is only 1000 dollars more and you get more bang for your buck. also the ranger has irs.

Polaris is king in the sxs market. they have that down, pretty tough to beat a ranger for utility work.
