Hello

Has anyone shot a 5k run from the rear of a Mule? Did you find that it worked well and did you need to use a intercom with the driver? Any insight would be a great help!

Thanks

Kurt--

I have a device that may be of service for this type of vehicle shot.

I built this receiver hitch mount for hard mounting to my father's Polaris Ranger...but it also fits any 2" receiver hitch.

I have done many shoots with a Kawasaki Mule...check the pics below.

Let me know if you need this unit for your shoot, email me off board at brant@brantsfagan.com.

Best,

I like having a ?spotter? with a monitor in the back seat. They can relay instructions to the driver and keep an eye on my safety.

Brant,

That's really cool! Not much head-room there, but really cool.

I agree with the Polaris over the Mule as the ragers have better suspension and better speed regulation and range.

I however would love for you to see our 6X6 air ride suspended 60mph automatic transmissioned Polaris 500 Pony Cam Camera Bike with front and rear mounting capibility.
