WA800-8

The WA800-8 is designed with quarry, aggregate, and mining customers in mind. When matched with 60 to 100 ton haul trucks, the WA800-8 delivers the performance and legendary reliability customers expect from Komatsu wheel loaders. The new cab keeps operators comfortable throughout long shifts. Walkways, handrails, catwalks, and ISO certified tie-off points are strategically located throughout the machine allowing for simplified access to all check points. Maintenance is made easy with the standard ground level service center. Optional KomVision all around monitoring system with Radar Obstacle Detection increases operator awareness.

Features

New Productivity and Efficiency Features

  • Variable Traction Control System optimizes rim pull for various ground conditions, minimizing tire slippage and reducing maintenance costs
  • Modulation Clutch gives operators precise control of rim pull, allows for fast work equipment speeds and a smooth approach when loading trucks
  • A new Closed-Center, Load Sensing Hydraulic System (CLSS) keeps hydraulic oil cool, work equipment speed quick, and reduces fuel consumption
  • Throttle Lock improves cycle times by maintaining high work-equipment performance and saves fuel with auto-deceleration
  • Komatsu SmartLoader Logic helps reduce fuel consumption without compromising production
  • All new Komatsu bucket design, with modified profile to maximize bucket fill factor and increase productivity

New Operator's Environment

  • Large, ROPS/FOPS certified operator's cab with trainer seat provides a full view of the working area
  • 45 degree power staircase (optional) and 45 degree walkways on left and right side of machine for convenient access to the cab
  • Catwalks and guardrails on the counterweight and in front of the cab allow for easy maintenance
  • Work equipment shock reduction control (4 settings – off, low, middle, high)
  • Higher capacity air suspension seat (heated and ventilated)
  • LED external and internal lighting
  • Anchored tie off points (ISO 14567) located around the machine provide technicians locations to attach service lanyards
  • Electronically Controlled Suspension System (ECSS) provides a smooth ride for better travel performance, reducing operator fatigue and material spillage during operation

Reliability and Durability

  • Increased overhaul intervals on transmission and axles reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • New loader linkage design with increased arm plate width for structural durability in the most challenging digging applications
  • Standard brake cooling and redesigned wet, multi-disk service brakes extend service intervals and require fewer service hours to complete planned maintenance
  • Standard engine pre-lubrication system ensures full lubrication upon startup to minimize unnecessary engine wear

New Machine Technology

  • Large 7" LCD color machine monitoring panel with integrated load meter
  • Advanced machine monitoring system with onboard diagnostics, no laptop required
  • KomVision with radar obstacle detection provides a bird’s eye view utilizing a 6-camera system and dedicated display (optional)
  • KOMTRAX Plus, for near-real time remote diagnostics of machine health and performance
  • Energy saving operation and ecology guidance provides operator with recommendations to improve operational efficiency and fuel economy
  • Automatic Dig, Semi-auto approach, and Semi-auto dump features automate work equipment control throughout a v-cycle to reduce operator fatigue while maintaining high levels of productivity
