Komatsu Launches WA200-7 Wheel Loader with T4i Engine


WA200PZ-7Another Tier IV final roll-out from Komatsu.

With a net horsepower of 126 hp (94 kW), the WA200-7 wheel loader is powered by a Komatsu engine that is certified to comply with Tier IV final emissions standards.

With the new engine, fuel consumption has been reduced by up to three percent compared to the WA200-6.

The new wheel loader replaces both the WA200-6 and the WA200PZ-6. Weighing between 25,342 lbs. and 26,070 lbs. (11495 – 11825 kg), the new model has enhanced design features that contribute towards improved efficiency, lower fuel consumption, more operator comfort and serviceability.

The WA200-7 retains Z-bar (PZ) loader linkage for safer handling of loads such as when pallet handling with high tilt forces for large attachments. The PZ linkage also offers large breakout and lift force, which make bucket-filling quick and easy and also aids in digging performance.

EPA Tier 4 Interim Emission Certified Engine

Built on Komatsu’s proven Tier 3 technology, the SAA4D107E-2 engine produces lower emissions and lower fuel consumption.

In the WA200-7, Komatsu has also employed the use of its electronically actuated Komatsu Variable Flow Turbocharger (KVFT) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve. The company says that this results in precise air management as well as long component life. The simplicity of this configuration on the 4-cylinder engine provides a robust and reliable system without additional hydraulic lines.

The Komatsu Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (KDOC) is part of an integrated exhaust management system that does not interfere with daily operation. The KDOC is a 100% passive regeneration system that is good for the life of the engine and does not have a scheduled replacement interval.

The WA200-7 also features Komatsu SmartLoader Logic, which provides the optimal engine torque for the job required. Komatsu SmartLoader Logic helps save fuel by automatically decreasing engine torque when the loader is not working as hard, such as when driving with an empty bucket. This functions automatically, does not interfere with operation, and saves fuel without decreasing production.

Operator Environment

The cab of the WA200-7 has been tweaked to provide a more comfortable and quieter work environment. The low and sloped front glass gives improved visibility to the front wheels. Redesigned operator controls make working mode selection and other machine parameters quicker and easier.

The redesigned right hand console has a multi-function mono-lever with proportional control for third spool. An auxiliary input has also been added to connect an MP3 player or other device along with two 12-volt ports for powering portable devices.

Extended Warranty

To further reduce owning and operating costs, Komatsu CARE complimentary scheduled maintenance is standard on all WA200-7 wheel loaders for three (3) years or 2,000 hours (whichever occurs first).

To reduce downtime, the WA200-7 offers easier access for added convenience during service. The new wheel loader has increased cooling capacity, wider cooler fin spacing and a standard auto-reversing fan to help keep the radiator clean.

In common with all latest releases, the WA200-7 is also equipped with KOMTRAX technology, which is fully integrated with Komatsu’s Tier 4 technology.
