This new model weighs 52,007 lbs. and features improved efficiency, improved operator comfort and enhanced serviceability. It is equipped with the latest Komtrax technology, which is integrated with Komatsu’s Tier 4 technology.

The WA470-7 also has a large capacity torque converter with lockup that provides improved acceleration, faster hill climb ability, a higher top speed and lower fuel consumption. This function activates in second, third and fourth gears, giving the machine a maximum ground speed of 23.8 mph.
