With a larger 7.6-cubic-yard bucket, the WA500-8 wheel loader is up to 10 percent more productive than its Dash 7 predecessor, Komatsu says. The 357-horsepower Tier 4-Final Komatsu engine optimizes power and, with the loader’s improved power train and hydraulic efficiency, can save up to 5 percent in fuel consumption. SmartLoader logic provides optimal engine torque.

In the cab, the loader has an air-suspension seat and new cast frame members for more strength. Pilot controls are mounted on the seat.

A swing-out cooling fan has wider fin spacing and standard auto-reverse for ease of cleaning. Gull-wing engine doors provide access to daily checks and service items.
