Komatsu Loader Features Engine That Increases Power, Decreases Fuel Consumption

Komatsu America Corp. offers the WA500-7 wheel loader, powered by a Komatsu SAA6D140E-6 engine that is EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage 3 emission certified. The environmentally friendly engine increases power while decreasing fuel consumption, according to the company.

As with every Komatsu Tier 4 Interim machine the WA500-7 comes standard with the Komatsu CARE Program, which provides complimentary factory scheduled maintenance for 2,000 hours or the first three years (whichever occurs first). Komatsu CARE also includes two complimentary Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) exchanges within the first five years.

The WA500-7 has an operating weight of 76,611 lb. when equipped with a 7.3 cu. yd. general-purpose bucket and a maximum speed of 22.1 mph. Enhanced operating performance, lower fuel consumption, improved operator comfort and easier serviceability are features of the WA500-7 that provide increased productivity and lower operating costs.

The WA500-7 is equipped with the latest KOMTRAX technology, which sends machine operating information to a secure website utilizing wireless technology. Data such as daily fuel consumption, machine utilization, operating hours, location, cautions and maintenance alerts are relayed to the web application for analysis. The KOMTRAX fleet monitoring system increases machine availability, reduces the risk of machine theft, allows for remote diagnosis by the distributor, and provides a wealth of other information to drive business efficiency and productivity.
