New Komatsu WA80M-8 wheel loader

Komatsu Europe has launched an all-new compact wheel loader. The WA80M-8 has an operating weight of 5,995kg and its 72hp Komatsu S4D98E-6VHA engine complies with EU Stage V regulations. A fully automatic hydrostatic transmission sends power to all four wheels, and the WA80M-8’s top speed can be increased up to 40km/h (25mph) for an additional cost. Komatsu quotes a 6,000-hour cleaning interval for the diesel articulate filter, which typically equates to around 10 years of use.

Other features include a tilting cab, hydraulic quick-coupler, redesigned engine hood and lowered exhaust pipe that enhance visibility, improved control ergonomics, secondary engine stop switch, seven-inch TFT monitor for the operator, and KOMTRAX telematics. Air conditioning, variable creep speed, Electronic Controlled Suspension System (ECSS) and a wide range of attachments are on the options list.
