imagesKOKomatsu America Corp.’s WA480-6 Wheel Loader with Large Capacity Torque Converter has a net horsepower of 299 HP. The WA480-6 has an operating weight of 55,920 to 56,340 pounds and a dumping clearance of 10′ 6 when equipped with a 6.0 yd3 general purpose bucket.The new wheel loader comes equipped with the latest Komtrax technology which monitors a variety of machine operating information including daily fuel consumption, working hours, hour meter, location, cautions and maintenance alerts. Utilizing wireless technology, Komtrax relays this information to a secure website for analysis, thereby increasing machine availability, reducing the risk of machine theft, and allowing for remote diagnosis by the distributor.






The WA480-6 has a newly designed Large Capacity Torque Converter that provides the machine with excellent tractive effort, improved acceleration and improved hill climbing ability. Because of the increased tractive effort, the machine has greater productivity in V-cycle applications. The improved hill climbing ability allows the machine to up-shift gears faster due to  improved acceleration, achieve higher gear ranges and maintain higher ground speeds when working in load-and-carry or hopper feeding applications.  In either application, production is increased and fuel consumption maximized resulting in improved fuel efficiency (tons/gal).




Increased fuel efficiency and maximum productivity
