KOMATSU: Wheel loader WA475-10, bauma 2019

Komatsu will be showing us the new WA475-10 wheel loader at the bauma 2019 trade fair in Munich. What's special about it? The machine is specially adapted to the needs of the European market.

Wheel loader model developed specifically for the needs of European customers

A premiere at Komatsu - the wheel loader model WA475-10 will be shown for the first time at bauma 2019 in Munich. This version was developed specifically to meet the needs of European customers. A combination of the lowest possible operating costs with high productivity and simple operation.

The wheel loader is used in sand and gravel construction. In recycling, heavy earthworks and material handling. This is what we developed this machine for. At the heart of this development is a completely new load-split transmission. This includes a hydrostatic power path and a direct power path. Depending on the application, this is automatically selected by the transmission. This leads to a reduction in engine speed and therefore has a positive effect on fuel consumption. The engine speed is reduced across the entire range.

Wheel loader control decoupled from the travel drive and working hydraulics

This means less fuel consumption. Komatsu's customers naturally need high productivity. That is why the working hydraulics and the mast have been redesigned. More lifting power, more bucket breakout force can be made available. This makes it easier to fill the bucket. A completely new feature of the WA475-10 wheel loader that no one else has is the control of the travel drive and the working hydraulics, which have been decoupled from each other. This means that only the speed of the wheel loader is determined by the accelerator pedal. The hydraulic speed is regulated by the deflection of the control lever. This is simpler from an implement operating point of view. The driver does not have to influence too many parameters. This is where the concept of simple operation comes from.
