Versatility is a must for any backhoe loader: for fast and smooth operations in any application, Komatsu’s well proven Closed Load Sensing System is at the core of the WB97S-8’s hydraulics. It is supplemented by Komatsu’s exclusive parallel loader linkage, ideal for working with forks. The standard “Return to Dig” function, a kick down switch, and, for the loader, an automatic “speed up” and a selectable floating function, confirm this new backhoe loader as a premium package for customers.
