Komatsu America launches WA480-8 wheel loader

Komatsu America says its new WA480-8 Wheel Loader combines higher production with lower fuel costs, improved operator comfort and enhanced serviceability. The machine is suitable for quarry, infrastructure and non-residential construction applications, the company adds.

The wheel loader hosts a 299HP, 11.04 L, EPA Tier 4 Final certified, SAA6D125E-7 engine which is intended to use up to 20% less fuel than its Tier 3 predecessor. In addition, the Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter and other treatment components are designed in conjunction with the engine to help boost efficiency.

According to Komatsu America, an advanced joystick steering system eliminates the steering wheel and offers better visibility while allowing the machine to operate at full speed.

Meanwhile, a new bucket design has been installed with the intention of improving the vehicle’s overall productivity. Generous curves are located on the side wall and wrap to help improve pile penetration and material retention in carry operations.
