Komatsu WB142-5 Backhoe Loader
January 26, 2009

Komatsu America offers the WB142-5 Backhoe Loaders. The machine has an operating weight of 14,513 lbs and with a large loader bucket of 1.00 yd3 with bolt-on cutting edge, has the power, speed and operator comfort to be extremely productive in a highly competitive world. The WB142-5 is the fifth model in an outstanding line of backhoe loaders from Komatsu, said Jeff Aubrey, Product Manager Backhoe Loaders. It’s aimed at the cost-conscious buyer who wants a machine with lots of performance in a simple package. Owners looking for a solid backhoe loader that’s economical, yet powerful enough to tackle a variety of tasks can turn to Komatsu’s new WB142-5 that delivers on both counts. It’s priced lower than our high-spec deluxe models; it’s what we call an “entry-level” backhoe loader, but it has many of the same design features of its big brother, the WB146-5.
