Komatsu Europe International N.V. announces the new WA80M-7. This latest model in Komatsu’s range brings Komatsu’s industry leading EU Stage IIIB technologies to the compact wheel loaders class. With up to 8% less fuel consumption and upgrades to operator comfort, visibility and safety, the WA80M-7 offers an unbeatable customer value on construction sites, in the recycling industry or for agricultural jobs.

“The WA80M-70 was designed keeping in mind proven values of the popular Dash 6 Komatsu compact loaders,” says Sebastian Zienau Product Manager at Komatsu Europe. “Targeted upgrades to comfort and safety, along with a cleaner engine and a lower fuel consumption give this new machine industry leading characteristics that can lower overall operating costs for customers.”

Powerful and environmentally friendly

The fuel-efficient, EU Stage IIIB certified Komatsu SAA4D95LE-6 engine puts out 52 kW/70 hp. Optimized for tough applications, it delivers high torque even at low rpm. A fully automatic, hydrostatic transmission sends power to all four wheels, while the large 130 l fuel tank gives long and uninterrupted working hours. With high rimpull and enough reserves for the most challenging ground conditions, the WA80M-7 still features low fuel consumption.

First class comfort

A larger cabin and a new color monitor guarantee comfort and smooth operations. The PPC multifunction lever has a forward-neutral-reverse switch for quick and easy travel. Third spool attachments can be set to “continuous” or “proportional” to control the boom, bucket and attachment with a single lever. Two doors with large glass surfaces and a heated rear window further improve the great all-round visibility. Optimal noise insulation, easy-to-reach buttons and adjustable vents complete the comfortable work environment. For an even smoother ride, a special seat, a radio and an automatic inching function are available on request.

A reliable partner

Komatsu compact wheel loaders are known around the world for their robustness and durability. All maintenance and service is performed easily and quickly thanks to the unique tilting cab. The redesigned engine hood can be opened widely for a quick daily inspection, and the easy-to-clean wide core radiator with tilting fan guard is conveniently accessible. A new compartment for the battery, main switch and relays improves maintenance access to the electrical system.

KOMTRAX telematics and Komatsu Care, a complimentary maintenance program for customers, offer top fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime.
