The WA380-8 is well suited for construction sites, agricultural and utility work. With excellent break out force, tipping loads and serviceability, the WA380-8 helps get the job done. The Tier 4 Final engine with enhanced controller logic helps to improve performance and fuel efficiency.
The comfortable and quiet cab includes a new, more robust, heated air suspension seat with seat-mounted controls for improved operator comfort. Like other Komatsu loaders, the 7 inch LCD color monitor allows the operator to easily keep an eye on key machine parameters. The dedicated color rear view monitor helps the operator get a better picture of the machine’s surroundings.
Service items are consolidated and accessible from ground level, making daily inspections easier. An adjustable auto-reversing fan helps keep the coolers clean in almost any application. Swing out engine doors, and a swing out cooling fan make inspections, cleaning and maintenance quick and easy.
The Komatsu designed torque converter with lock-up is standard on the WA380-8. The lock-up function activates in 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears. The lock-up torque converter is effective for both load and carry application and V-shape loading which uses lower gears. Komatsu SmartLoader Logic reduces the clutch engagement shock of lock-up by controlling engine torque. The lock-up torque converter combined with Komatsu SmartLoader Logic results in low fuel consumption and high travel speeds in load and carry and even some V-cycle loading applications.
