Komatsu WA500-8 Wheel Loader

The Komatsu WA500-8 Wheel Loader is a utility performer with an EU Stage V engine which offers fuel consumption of up to 7 % lower than the WA500-7. Built on the recognized benefits of its predecessor, the new Komatsu WA500-8 offers an outstanding combination of stability, breakout power and tractive effort to customers and is perfect for any moving, transport or loading job. Available machine attachments extend the machine’s versatility to waste handling or quarry applications. The WA500-8 Wheel Loader has a new auto-digging mode, and along with Komatsu’s redesigned digging bucket, which further improves penetration and is easier to fill, operating comfort and productivity are increased and fuel consumption can be reduced.
