New Komatsu WA270-7 wheel loader
To replace the previous models WA250-6 and WA250PZ-6 Komatsu America Corp. has released a new wheel loader WA270-7 weighing 13,080 kg and featuring improved efficiency, low fuel consumption, enhanced operator cabin comfort, as well as improved performance characteristics for better productivity and reduced operating costs.
The WA270-7 is powered by Komatsu SAA6D107E-2 engine which produces 149 hp and meets EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage 3B emission standards. Fuel consumption of the engine SAA6D107E-2 was reduced by 10 percent compared with the WA250-6.
The unique Parallel Z-bar (PZ) loader linkage allows parallel lift for loading pallets, high tilt forces when working with large attachments, large breakout force to fill the bucket, and increased by 10 percent lift force.
Installation of Komatsu Variable Geometry Turbocharger (KVGT) and an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve has improved precision and air management, increased the engine power and component life. Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) does not require daily maintenance, but the operator is always aware of its work.
Komatsu SmartLoader Logic system automatically adjusts the engine torque depending on the load and application, for example, decreasing the engine torque when the loader is driving with an empty bucket. Thus, the fuel economy is performed without decreasing production.
New operator cab provides a more comfortable working environment with reduced noise and vibration levels, to improve visibility the front glass has been lowered and the dashboard redesigned. On the right side of the operator`s seat there is a multifunctional mono-lever.
The high resolution LCD 7-inch monitor displays the operation information in 25 languages, using this display the operator can easily monitor the settings of the loader, such as working hours, fuel consumption, and maintenance intervals. Komatsu WA270-7 standard equipment includes a rearview camera with a separate monitor located on the right side of the console.
New wheel loader Komatsu WA270-7 features Komatsu CARE program for three (3) years or 2000 hours, Komatsu Equipment Management Monitoring System and the latest KOMTRAX technology as standard.
