Komatsu’s latest version of the WA100M Dash 8 compact wheel loader has gone on sale in Ireland.
Described by distributor McHale Plant Sales director, John O’Brien as ‘one of the most reliable and versatile machines out there’, the WA100M is being pitched at construction, farm contractors, bulk materials and waste processors, of whom Ireland has many.
The 94hp EU Stage IV unit 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’.
