Improved loaders

Redditch-based Marubeni-Komatsu have announced the introduction of a range of improved Komatsu wheel loaders covering models from the 2.6m3 WA320-3 up to the 4.6m3 WA470-3. Carrying the additional designation of 'actiVe plus', the new machines feature Komatsu's Application Mode Selection (AMS) system which is designed to improve working efficiency and is said to provide fuel savings of up to 15%.

AMS offers a choice of three work modes: 'High' maintains normal working for maximum power and fast V-shape loading; 'Standard' provides smooth, economic operation and is suitable for fast road travel and slow V-shape loading; and 'Economy' allows light operations and load-and-carry work to be carried out at maximum efficiency. In addition, the new WA470 has a central lubrication system fitted as standard and models from the 3.1m3 WA380 up are available with optional joystick steering.
