Komatsu is an iconic heavy equipment company and industry leader that not only sells some of the best heavy equipment in the world, but also sets a research and development standard. The R & D team at Komatsu is at it again and their hard work has paid off with the release of the new WA200-7 Wheel Loader.
The new piece of heavy equipment combines more power with less fuel use to create the new standard for wheel loaders. Other features only add to the quality of the machine.
With a net horsepower of 126 hp (94 kW), the WA200-7 is powered by an EPA Tier 4 Interim emission certified Komatsu engine. Built on its proven Tier 3 engine platform, Komatsu leveraged its leadership in technology and innovation to design a more environmentally-friendly engine. Fuel consumption has been reduced by up to three percent compared to the WA200-6.
According to Komatsu executives, the new wheel loader replaces both the WA200-6 and the WA200PZ-6. Weighing between 25,342 lbs. and 26,070 lbs. (11495 – 11825 kg), the new model features improved efficiency, lower fuel consumption, excellent operator comfort and serviceability to help maximize productivity while lowering operating costs.
The Komatsu WA200-7 Wheel Loader offers state-of-the-art systems in all of the important performance categories. Here are some of the highlights.
One Machine for All Applications
The WA200-7 utilizes Komatsu’s versatile Parallel Z-bar (PZ) loader linkage. This linkage combines the advantages of a parallel lift linkage for pallet handling and high-tilt forces for large attachments.
EPA Tier 4 Interim Emission Certified Engine
Built on Komatsu’s proven Tier 3 technology, the SAA4D107E-2 engine produces lower emissions and lower fuel consumption. The Komatsu Tier 4 Interim engine uses an advanced electronic control system to better manage air-flow rate, fuel injection, combustion and exhaust after-treatment to optimize performance, reduce emissions, and reduce fuel consumption.
Responsive Hydrostatic Powertrain System
Now in its second generation, the Komatsu hydrostatic (HST) drivetrain features large pump capacity for high efficiency and responsiveness. The result is enhanced control, especially in tight spaces.
The cab of the WA200-7 provides a more comfortable and quieter work environment plus better visibility with the low and sloped front glass affords visibility to the front wheels.
Customer peace-of-mind is standard with Komatsu CARE®
Komatsu remains focused on lowering the customer’s ownership costs by engineering machines with increased fuel efficiency and productivity. To further reduce owning and operating costs, Komatsu CARE® complimentary scheduled maintenance is standard on all WA200-7 wheel loaders for three years or 2,000 hours (whichever occurs first).
Convenient Maintenance and Serviceability
To reduce downtime, the WA200-7 provides more convenient service access. The new wheel loader has increased cooling capacity, wider cooler fin spacing and a standard auto-reversing fan to help keep the radiator clean. The machine is equipped with the exclusive Komatsu EMMS (Equipment Management Monitoring System), which provides enhanced diagnostic features.
