Wheel Loaders - WA500-7

Download Specifications Enquire


The Dash 7 wheel loader range is faster, more fuel efficient, more productive, more comfortable and easier to service.
Fuel savings are achieved through various improvements within the Komatsu Engine, driveline, and Hydraulic Components.
Powered by Komatsu’s new Tier 4 Interim Engine featuring High pressure common rail fuel injection (HPCR), Komatsu variable geometry turbo (KVGT) Cooled gas recirculation technology(EGR) and the Komatsu diesel particulate filter (KDPF), the Dash 7 delivers cleaner emissions, reduced fuel consumption and exceptional performance.
Komatsu SmartLoader Logic, the NEW engine control system ensures optimum torque delivery based on load and working conditions. The NEW Large Torque converter with Enhanced Lockup provides more efficient power transfer and increased productivity and performance in both Load & Carry and V-shape operations.
