The Tier 4 interim WA380-7 will save you 10% on your fuel bill over the previous model. Two engine power modes, power and economy, let the operator match his work mode to the job at hand. The large capacity torque converter with enhanced lock-up gives the WA380-7 terrific digging power in the pile and climbing ability. SmartLoader Logic ensure that the WA380-7 works most efficiently under low demand conditions to ensure further energy and fuel savings.
Komatsu SmartLoader Logic
The WA380-7 provides Komatsu SmartLoader Logic, a new engine control system. This technology acquires data from various sensors in the vehicle and controls the engine to yield enough torque for each work phase. Engine torque requirements for a wheel loader vary depending on working conditions. For example, the loader requires higher torque for digging in V-shape loading, but less torque when traveling with an empty bucket. This technology limits the engine torque during less demanding work, therefore saving fuel. Komatsu SmartLoader Logic functions automatically and doesn’t interfere with operation, saving fuel without decreasing production.
Large-Capacity Torque Converter
The newly designed power train has a large capacity torque converter for optimum efficiency. The WA380-7 has greater productivity in V-shape loading applications because the increased tractive effort does not require full throttle. The improved hill climbing ability allows the WA380-7 to up-shift gears faster because of improved acceleration. The WA380-7 can achieve higher gear ranges and maintain higher travel speed when working in load-and-carry applications. In most applications, production is increased and fuel consumption is reduced, resulting in improved fuel efficiency.
Low Fuel Consumption
Komatsu added many new features on the WA380-7 to reduce fuel consumption. These features enable further fuel efficiency by optimally controlling engine power and matching the Komatsu designed and produced high efficiency power train components and hydraulic system.
Dual-Mode Engine Power Select System
This wheel loader offers two selectable operating modes—E and P.
E Mode - This mode provides maximum fuel efficiency for general loading.
P Mode - This mode provides maximum power output for hard digging operations or hill climb applications.
