I bought a brand new Trans Mule last Oct and having a horrible time with dust filling the Cab while driving..I did put on a windshield but the "vacuum" effect makes it unbearable for the riders in the second bench to go anywhere...Does anyone else have this problem..?I have the 80/20 windshield...When i open the 20 part it helps some but not a bunch...It was doing it even before I installed the windshield...

The faster you drive the more dust you create.Take it easy and enjoy the scenery.

Obviously you dont know that Trans Mules have governors on them so speed isnt the issue with the dust kicking up..Thx anyway....

Hmmm, the only solution is to flehan for more rain. I don't have the trans but with my windshield on it def. sucks the dust in. My bro in law has the trans and dust is pretty bad but I just figured it was the oversized tires and drought, but maybe the short bed has something to do with it?

I think Don meant to take it slooowwwwww and enjoy the scenery cheers.

One of these helps considerably. You'll still get dust, but not nearly as bad as without.....

I know because I have a Kubota that only goes 25 MPH. There is a lot more dust at 25 than there is at 10. Also there is a lot less now that the rain has settled the dust for a while.

Put doors on and the dust is gone.With a top and windshield on it just creates a vacumn effect.



This country is stuck on stupid!

That's why the back shield helps. Doesn't stop it, but cuts it way down.

Thx TXLT...just ordered one...There is a cab enclosure but dont want to spend 1700 dollars...Right out of the box with stock tires and no lift it was a dusty mofo...I see now they have some plate that can be installed beneath the rear seats that is a dust deflector as well....Must have seen some flaws..It was not available last year...

I use the Cabela's product on my Polaris Ranger and it cuts down on the dust significantly

Where did you get it? I have been thinking about getting one for the cold weather. Does it look like it will last awhile?

I actually ordered the Kolpin tinted lexan rear shield that is actually mounted on...I already have trouble with any velcro staying on so went with the permanent solution...
