The Komatsu WA500-8 wheel loader comes equipped with an EPA Tier 4 Final certified engine, and combines an enhanced lockup torque converter function and SmartLoader logic to achieve low fuel consumption and high travel speeds. The standard bucket capacity has increased to 7.6 cubic yards and the bucket now fills easier and retains material better, contributing to machine efficiency and productivity gains of up to 10 per cent. Also, by optimizing control of engine power, and improving power train and hydraulic efficiency, the WA500-8 consumes up to five per cent less fuel than its Tier 4 interim predecessor.
