The WA 1200-3 of Komatsu

Also in the squad of the wheelloaders, Komatsu can assert itself. With the WA 1200-3 covers the Japanese place three of the world-chart. The drive-aggregate for these 456,000 lb of heavy wheelloader doesn't come this time from the house-own motor-smithy. The performance for this giant delivers a Cummins QSK 60 16 cylinders turbo-diesel engine, that scoops its strength from well 16 U.S. gal of capacity. This engine strong 1562 HP already develops its full performance with a motor-speed of 1900 r.p.m. and gets itself from a fuel-tank grasping 1348 U.S. gal. These accomplishment-data make possible a monstrous breakout force of over 287,000 lb for the WA 1200. The WA 1200-3 is the mechanically driven wheelloader biggest world-wide. The gigantic shovel of the loader can grasp rubble up to 46 yd³ what corresponds to a payload of 133 lb. It reaches a maximum speed of barely 14 MPH and if it must be, the hydraulics-pumps generate a gpm, that equals the entire hydraulics-oil-reserve of 317 U.S. gal.
