A perfect match

MARUBENI-Komatsu has announced the launch of a new range of backhoe loaders, beginning with the WB93R-8. A second backhoe will be introduced in the coming months.

The EU Stage IV-compliant models are said to provide increased efficiency and reduced fuel consumption without compromising on performance or productivity.

Benefits of the new models include Komatsu’s power shift transmission and 4-wheel steering. Front visibility is aided by a compact front bonnet and the lateral position of the exhaust pipe.

Extended service intervals, updated KOMTRAX technology and a new 7’’ LCD colour multi-function monitor with fuel consumption indications have all been described as contributing to the optimisation of total cost of ownership.

Alex Visentin, product manager at Komatsu Europe said, “This new series represents a perfect match between performance and efficiency. Keeping the exceptional visibility and exclusive design for the work equipment of previous models, our new backhoe loaders deliver high productivity and give special attention to the operator’s needs.”
