As use of ICT for construction equipment became more common, things like crewless dump trucks, IT execution, and KOMTRAX were further developed. Hybrid equipment that decreased both fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission was introduced and marked a new generation of construction machines.
Komatsu executed a full model change to the world's largest mechanical drive Wheel loader, WA1200.
With Komatsu's latest engine installed, it corresponded to the EPA's emission regulation. The engine's automatic power mode changer and ROPS/FOPS equipped cab ensured the productivity and economical efficiency desired for super large Wheel loader while improving safety, durability, and ease of maintenance.
Bucket capacity: 20.0m3
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.
