Komatsu WB97S-8 Backhoe Loader

Built around the successful features of previous Komatsu backhoe loaders, the new Komatsu WB97S‐8 has an operating weight of 8,750 kg, and an improved EU Stage IV Komatsu SAA4D99E‐1 engine with more power (75 kW /101 HP gross), lower fuel consumption and no loss of performance or productivity. A viscous fan clutch helps to achieve fuel savings by reducing the engine load when maximum cooling is not required.

The WB97S‐8 also offers a high level of standard specifications along with unrivalled operator visibility thanks to Komatsu’s unique combination of a lateral exhaust pipe and compact bonnet.
