  • Perfect for commercial job sites where diesel fuel is readily available
  • Exhaust pipe routing allows easy hydraulic lift kit installation
  • Overhead valve design maximizes efficiency
  • Cast iron block and head help ensure extreme durability

Environmentally Friendly Emissions

  • Positive crankcase ventilation system sends blow-by gases to the intake tract to be burned in the engine
  • Muffler has a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor

Cyclone-Type Engine Air Cleaner

  • Cyclone design is effective and needs less frequent cleaning even in extremely dusty conditions
  • Restriction gauge tells when to change the filter
  • Donaldson® air cleaner has a replaceable paper element

Cab Frame Air Intake

  • Draws engine air and converter cooling air from the top of the cab frame where there is less dust, so air filters last longer

Heavy Duty Battery and Alternator

  • 52 amp-hour battery provides positive starts while the high-output, 40-amp alternator keeps the battery charged

Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS)

  • Fully automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) features forward high and 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
  • Tuned to accommodate higher loads
  • Large drive and driven torque converters maximize engagement area of the thick and strong drive belt for improved heat dissipation and added durability
  • High-flow cover helps cool the CVT while providing superb splash protection and waterproofing
  • Sheaves with high silicon type material for increased durability
  • An open-sided drive pulley cools better for longer belt life
  • Offers adjustable belt deflection

Torque Converter Air Filter

  • Shift to four-wheel drive and low range for maximum traction in adverse conditions, or select two-wheel drive and high range to cut gear wear and increase fuel economy

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 means no power loss from the engine
  • EPS only operates when the engine is running to keep from draining the battery
