Move more material with less fuel and a more comfortable operator’s environment! The WA500-8 has a newly designed bucket with increased capacity and improved digging performance to maximize production. The EPA Tier 4 Final certified engine incorporates enhanced controller logic for lower fuel consumption. A new high capacity, heated, air suspension seat provides premium comfort. Added technology includes an integrated load meter and an easier-to-use auto digging system to fill the bucket with reduced operator effort.
This wheel loader offers two selectable operating modes
— Power (P) and Economy (E).
• P Mode: This mode provides maximum power output for hard- digging operation or hill climbing.
• E Mode: This mode provides maximum fuel efficiency for general loading.
The new automatic digging system actuates the bucket tilt and lifting operations by sensing the pressure applied to the work equipment. This system can alleviate operator's fatigue and optimize bucket load. This system is activated through the LCD color monitor panel.
A new standard, heated, air-suspension seat provides enhanced support on rough roads and dampens machine vibrations, providing a more comfortable ride for the operator. An EPC-lever console is built into, and moves with, the seat. The angle of the armrest is fully adjustable for optimum operator comfort. A secondary F-N-R switch is incorporated in to work equipment lever configurations.
An operator identification (ID) code can be set for each operator, and used to manage operation information of individual machines through KOMTRAX. Data sent from KOMTRAX can be used to analyze operation status by operator job, as well as by machine.
