I have a 610 ...In think it's the XC version. Factory more aggressive tires, lift kit, etc. It does everything I ask, and I ask a lot at times. Last week it spent a lot of time tree trimming. Mom had a guy cleaning up under her pine trees and removing dead branches and it
hauled that for a couple days. A storm went through Thursday and we cleaned up trees for a couple ladies from church. One tree I said "Cut it in two and I'll drag it to the pile"
"That won't pull anything that big!"
I have a 15 gallon sprayer that gets used a lot. I've been waging all out war on Poison Hemlock and Johnsongrass.
We have a 50 gallon tank (originally a starter tank from a JD planter a LONG time ago) my wife has used all summer watering some trees we planted this year.
I plumbed in a 12 volt pump and 50 ft garden hose and threw a battery in the cargo box and put a blue light on top and it was a 1st response unit for our 4th of July celebration at the local park.
Having said all that, I'd look closely at that 550 before buying the Mule. I think it has a bit more speed, maybe a bigger engine, and may ride better because I think it has fully independent suspension instead of a solid rear axle.
There are two things about the Mule that could be improved. A bit more speed (23 or 24 MPH) and it would be nice if it were quieter. It's very difficult to talk while moving.
