WA480 Wheel Loader Features

High Performance SAA6D125E-5 Engine

Electronic Heavy Duty Common Rail fuel injection system provides optimum combustion of fuel. This system also provides fast throttle response to match the machine’s powerful tractive effort and fast hydraulic response.

Low Emission Engine

This engine is EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage 3A emissions certified, without sacrificing power or machine productivity.

Low Fuel Consumption

The fuel consumption is reduced greatly because of the low-noise, high-torque engine and the large-capacity torque converter with maximum efficiency in the low-speed range.

Large-capacity Torque Converter

Newly designed drive train has a large-capacity torque converter for optimal efficiency. The WA480-6 has plenty of acceleration without the need for full throttle and it can achieve high travel speeds, even on grades or steep ramps leading to feed hoppers. This significantly assists productivity and also delivers great value for load-and-carry operations.

High-rigidity Frames and Loader Linkage

The front and rear frames and the loader linkage have more torsional rigidity to secure resistance against increased stress due to the use of a larger bucket. The frame and loader linkage accommodate actual working loads, and simulated computer testing proves its strength.

Low-noise Design

The large cab is mounted with Komatsu’s unique ROPS/FOPS viscous mounts. The low-noise engine, hydraulically driven fan, and hydraulic pumps are mounted with rubber cushions, and the cab sealing is improved to provide a quiet, low-vibration, dustproof with pressurizing, and comfortable operating environment. Also, exterior noise is lowest in this class.

Maximum Dumping Clearance and Reach

The long lift arms provide high dumping clearances and maximum dumping reach. The operator can even level loads on the body of a dump truck easily and efficiently.
