Power, Performance & Efficiency
Environmental concerns are growing worldwide, along with a need for cleaner engines. The Komatsu WA800-8 meets the latest EU Stage V emission regulations with Komatsu-designed, developed, and manufactured engine and aftertreatment systems. Two Diesel Particulate Filters, two Variable Geometry Turbos, a Heavy Duty and cooled exhaust gas recirculation system, new engine control modules, a Closed Crankcase Ventilation system - and no AdBlue® required, will allow WA800-8 customers to be competitive in tenders and keep their Komatsu machine at work for many years.
As standard, Komatsu offers up to 11,5 m³ buckets, that have a redesigned spill guard, increased radius and floor angle, and provide better penetration and higher fill factors to boost productivity and income. Their ultra-strong teeth and enlarged sweeper wings increase uptime and reduce tire damage to also reduce maintenance costs. A standard high accuracy Payload Meter (PLM) lets you easily monitor and track your work’s productivity and efficiency within 1.5 % accuracy, to avoid overloading dump trucks.

The Modulation Clutch system gives operators precise control of rim pull, for fast work equipment speeds, and a smooth approach for truck loading. The Variable Traction Control system optimises rim pull on all ground conditions, minimises tire slippage and lowers maintenance costs. On-board Komatsu SmartLoader Logic, a fully automatic engine control, yields precisely enough torque for each work phase, based on the application. By automatically switching between Economy & Power modes it considerably reduces fuel usage, with no loss of productivity.
The new generation WA800-8 wheel loader’s hydraulics are improved with a CLSS hydraulic system that delivers power on demand via the variable displacement piston pumps. It keeps the hydraulic oil cool and increases both your work speed and fuel economy. Fuel savings are further promoted through the Auto Idle Shutdown system and by ECO guidance tips on the incab monitor. Combined with the Komatsu Care support package, the WA800-8 offers truly unbeatable customer value.
Safety, Reliability & Durability
A new supersized ROPS/FOPS cabin provides a completely redesigned, spacious, sturdy and safe operating environment, with a wide and unobstructed view of the work area. After dark, visibility and safe maintenance are improved by 22 LED lights, a new standard factory-fit comprehensive package. For increased safety and operating confidence, KomVision, a visual aid designed by Komatsu to help avoid contacts or collisions due to blind spots, reduces risks of machine damage and injury. On the WA800-8, five network cameras create a bird’s-eye view of the immediate surroundings on a dedicated monitor. An extra rear-view camera sends a colour image with a distance indicator line on the cabin monitor. Catwalks and handrails on the counterweight provide an additional standard safe exit and easier maintenance. In option, Komatsu proposes a hydraulically operated 45° ladder to the cabin.
