A flexible and reliable tool to meet waste handling requirements.

At Intermat 2018, Komatsu Europe will showcase a WA380‐8 fully configured for Waste & Recycling work. The WA380‐8 wheel loader, is a versatile performer with an EU Stage IV engine and fuel consumption up to 8 % lower than the WA380‐7. It offers an outstanding combination of stability, breakout power and tractive effort and is perfect for any moving, transport or loading job. Available attachments extend the machine’s versatility to waste handling or quarry applications.

The waste management industry places huge demands on machines. Renowned for its high quality standards and reliability, Komatsu provides a wide range of factory‐fitted options to adapt our wheel loaders to the specific requirements of waste handling applications. These various options are well tested and proven to protect a machine against damage and unexpected downtime.

“The Komatsu WA380‐8 is an ideal tool for these challenging applications and environments” says Henrik Flohr, Senior Product Manager at Komatsu Europe. “Its market‐best stability, combined with a 40° articulation angle to either side, allows the WA380‐8 to easily handle many attachments within a confined environment.”

Very comfortable, the machine is controlled by a Multifunction Lever with integrated 3rd or 4th hydraulic line controls.

With its standard loading frame, the WA380‐8 features an impressive dumping clearance, which can be further extended with either a High‐Lift or a Super High‐Lift loading frame. These are unique solutions to the increased loading heights of current trailers. The exhaust gas aftertreatment system features a Komatsu Diesel Particle Filter (KDPF) combined with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. The combination provides an unbeatable passive regeneration level, which means no interruption to work, and generates very low exhaust gas heat levels which can make the WA380‐8 an ideal choice for working in fire‐hazardous environments.

KOMTRAX telematics and Komatsu CARE, a Komatsu maintenance program for customers, offer top fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime.
