LATEST KOMATSU WA100M LOADER HITS IRELAND
Komatsu has launched its latest version WA100M Dash 8 compact wheel loader on the market here with agricultural contractors, farm users and bulk grain and feed merchant users firmly in their sights.
Farm-fit in terms of its general dimensions, accessible mechanics, and all-round durability and maneuverability, it is described by Birdhill-based distributor McHale Plant Sales director, John O’Brien as ‘one of the most reliable and versatile machines out there’.
Powered by a 94hp EU Stage IV engine, the WA100M has an operating weight of 7,200kg and an over-the-ground speed of 40km/h.
A redesigned, easier-to-fill bucket of 1.3m3 capacity comes with a longer bottom, modified back and side walls, and a newly-designed guard. A tilting cab gives better access for maintenance and servicing.
Its low centre of gravity enhances stability, whilst its compact dimensions and new engine hood provide what Komatsu terms ‘exceptional all-round visibility’.
