WA700-3 Wheel Loaders

Designed for bucket sizes from 8.7-9.4 cu m, our proven WA700-3 loader is designed for production loading in large quarries, minesite face-loading, and ROM stockpile and cleanup work. As with all our wheel loaders, key components are designed and manufactured by Komatsu to work together in an integrated package. And it comes standard with our KOMTRAX remote monitoring and location system, backed by our Australia-wide service and support network.

Wet Multi-Disc Brakes and Hydraulic Braking System

The wet disc brakes are fully sealed which means contaminants are kept out, reducing wear and resulting maintenance. Brakes require no adjustments for wear, meaning even lower maintenance. The parking brake is also an adjustment-free dry disc mounted to the front driveline for high reliability and long life.

Komatsu's Exclusive AJSS

The Advanced Joystick Steering System (AJSS) reduces operator fatigue and increases total productivity while achieving exceptional control in tight loading conditions. THe seat-mounted controller allows a full range of adjustments for the most comfortable fit.
