    2016 Kawasaki Mule Pro FXT

    Howdy fellow SxS'ers. New to this forum, but not new to SxS. Had a 2004 Yamaha Rhino 660 for a number of years before deciding I was tired of working on it and decided to get something new. Looked at what Yamaha had to offer and was kinda disappointed, the rugged workhorse that was the Rhino was gone. I looked at the Honda Pioneer 700-4. In theory its what I wanted. But that changed when I sat in one. I looked at the other makes, Odes, Massimo, ect. and wasn't impressed either. I wanted a workhorse that could seat at least 4 and still have a functional bed. The Polaris crew kinda fit the bill but the thing is so long it should be painted yellow and have flashing lights. Then, whilst looking at my local Cub Cadet dealer for a new lawn mower I noticed they were also a Kawasaki dealer. I took a Pro FXT for a spin around the parking lot and loved it. Quiet and smooth, and the convertible bed was just what I needed. This thing was built solid as well. I got a price on the LE model they had in stock and was tempted. I started looking online and settled on a base model with EPS. I called the dealer and asked when they would get one in. I was told it would be a few weeks, maybe a month as the new 2017's were going to be shipping soon. I waited a bit and decided to do a dealer search and found one about an hour away. I called and they had it in stock . I hooked to the trailer and the rest is history.

    Welcome and congrats on the new purchase!

    I'm leaning towards the Kawi FXT for my next machine as well. They really put some thought into building them, and I think they're built to last.
