Komatsu America WB156-5 and WB156PS-5 Backhoe Loaders
January 26, 2009

Komatsu America offers two  backhoe loaders: WB156-5 and the WB156PS-5. The machines are equipped with Tier 2 Engine and feature operating weights between 16,530 -18,780 pounds and loader bucket options up to 1.50 yd3. These new models, in the 15 foot backhoe class are the big brothers of the WB146-5 and WB146PS-5 introduced earlier this year. The new backhoe loaders feature a spacious operator station that has been completely redesigned to provide maximum comfort for any size operator. They are available in either open ROPS canopy or enclosed dual entry cab which allows for easy access from either side of the machine. The climate-controlled cab has 10 vents for maximum air circulation and its curved shape and large windows provide the operator with 3600 visibility. A one piece, floor-to-ceiling rear-opening window provides outstanding backhoe visibility. The machine accommodates operators of all sizes with its multiple suspension seat adjustments and a tilt steering column that locks at any desired angle.
