More and more innovative technologies were applied to products with a heavy focus on hydraulic shovels. Using mechatronics for engine control was one of the examples of Japan's advanced electronics technology that surpassed the world standards.
This model was developed as a successor of JH90EV, renewing workability, livability, and maintainability. Its large dumping clearance and dumping reach was able to load 18 to 20-ton Dump trucks as well as 11-ton, so it was often used together with HD180 and HD200 Dump trucks.
Bucket capacity: 3.5m3
It was 1949 when the first wheel loader was manufactured in Japan, however, it was not until mid 1960's when Komatsu entered the wheel loader market aligning with International Harvester. From JH series in the beginning, to the 500 series, to Komatsu's original WA series, our wheel loaders have met the needs of construction sites by scaling up, coping with the environment and adopting advanced technology such as mechatronics and IT.
