The WA470-8 offers an outstanding combination of stability, break out power and tractive effort. A new Tier 4 Final engine and enhanced controller logic improve performance and fuel efficiency.
The comfortable and quiet cab includes a new air suspension, heavy duty, high back, heated seat with integrated controls. The 7 inch, full color monitor and separate full color rear view monitor allow the operator to effortlessly monitor key information.
For ease of maintenance, service points are consolidated and daily inspection items can be checked from ground level. The auto-reversing function of the cooling fan can be customized to meet the needs of the application. The cooling fan swings out from the engine compartment for generous access for cleaning.
Special machine arrangements are available to optimize the machine configuration for logging and waste handling applications.
The Komatsu designed torque converter with lock-up is standard on the WA470-8. 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.
