Mule 610 was taken off my list of possibilities (air cooled not liquid cooled) as it has a cooling fan located on the side of the motor, 8-10" off the ground that is directly tied into the motor. you cannot put that machine in deep water or it will cause issues. Otherwise, the mule 610 XC would be in my garage.

I agree with Bill, get the Mule and slap on some mean 4 wheeler tires, surely this thing can go anywhere.

The Honda is also air cooled, or oil cooled, however you want to look at it. The cooler is mounted under the handle bars, installing a winch can make it run hot.

For what it's worth, when I shopped for a 4 wheeler, I wanted oil/air cooled rather than liquid cooled. I figured it was less to go wrong over the years. 16 years so far, and I was right, so far. Of course, it's a Yamaha, so maybe that's what really mattered.

I have o 2013 foreman 500 and love it. I am hard on equipment and it has taking a beating and keeps on going. Got my first honda in 1983, a big red 250, and its still going as well

I have numerous four wheelers along with a 2007 Foreman 500. Hard working, tough SOB. Can't kill it. I hate mules. Had one, terrible in the mud.

To each his own. Good luck with your choice either way.
