Komatsu launches WA380-8 wheeled loader

Komatsu America has introduced its WA380-8 wheeled loader.

It has a 6.69 liter, 191hp Komatsu SAA6D107E-3 variable geometry turbo charged, after cooled Tier 4 Final certified engine, that uses up to 6% less fuel than its Tier 4 Interim predecessor.

Komatsu’s SmartLoader Logic software combines with a lockup torque converter, which activates in second, third and fourth gears. Together, the system provides more exact engine torque for improved acceleration, hill climbing, a higher top speed and fuel savings.  

“With one of the highest breakout forces in its class and excellent balance, this machine is made for tough digging tasks,” said Craig McGinnis, Komatsu America product manager.

“The WA380-8 is ideal for carrying pipe, sand and other aggregates, site clean up and support, digging into piles and backfilling,” McGinnis said.

Komatsu designed the machine’s Komatsu diesel particulate filter and other after treatment components to work in harmony with the engine for efficiency and long life. A selective catalyst reduction assembly is incorporated to further reduce NOx emissions using diesel exhaust fluid.

The engine uses an advanced electronic control system to manage the air-flow rate, fuel injection, combustion parameters and after treatment functions to optimize performance, reduce emissions and provide advanced diagnostic capability.In-cab enhancements and features include:

  • A new, air-suspension, high-back, heated seat that softens machine vibrations for operator comfort, and cast frame members for increased strength.
  • Seat-mounted electronic pilot control levers with F-N-R switch for operator comfort and convenience.
  • Pioneering Komtrax telematics system and monitor that provides key machine metrics.
  • Komatsu Auto Idle Shutdown to reduce idle time and save fuel.
