Equipped with an EPA Tier 4 Final certified engine, the WA600-8 combines an enhanced lockup torque converter function and SmartLoader logic to achieve low fuel consumption and high travel speeds.
By optimizing control of engine power, and improving power train and hydraulic efficiency, the WA600-8 consumes up to 13 percent less fuel than its Tier 3 predecessor. Also, the standard bucket capacity increased to 9.2 cubic yards and the bucket now fills easier, retains material better and provides better visibility, contributing to machine efficiency and productivity.
The machine monitor displays various machine information and allows for various settings of the machine. The LCD monitor is a 7-inch color LCD and displays maintenance information, operation records, ecology guidance records, etc. The switch panel is used to select various screens and the air conditioner control screen. By using the switch panel, you can display various user menus on the LCD screen and adjust machine settings.
The WA600-8 provides Komatsu SmartLoader Logic, an engine control system. This technology creates the right amount of torque for each work phase. For example, engine torque needs are higher for digging in V-shape loading, but less when driving with an empty bucket. This system optimizes the engine torque for all applications to minimize fuel consumption. Komatsu SmartLoader Logic functions automatically and doesn’t interfere with operation, saving fuel without decreasing production.
