The IT revolution had a tremendous influence on the technology of construction equipment as well. The satellite operation management system was developed during the 90's as a method to supervise and manage equipment from a remote distance, and became an industry standard during this era.
WA800/900, large Wheel loaders used at mines and stone crushing, were upgraded for the first time in 4 years.
It was an eco friendly machine with low fuel consumption, loaded with the engine that passed the EPA's (Environmental Protection Agency) second regulation.
It let the operator set the transmission's cut off position, which enabled more delicate and comfortable operation.
*The engine larger than 560kw like the one with this model is subject to emission regulation only by EPA.
Bucket capacity: 13.0m3(WA900-3E0)
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.
