The WH716 belongs to the series of Komatsu telescopic handlers, which offers:
High quality, safety and cutting edge technology that typically characterise all Komatsu products. Super Low Boom Profile, a new design with unique advantages in terms of stability and visibility.
Superior versatility and manoeuvrability
Automotive style interior
The ROPS/FOPS cab has a modern and ergonomic layout. It is mounted on four elastic supports to reduce vibration and internal noise level. Several well distributed storage spaces in the cab maximize comfort and a state of the art LCD panel displays all the main readings. The servo-controlled joystick features a unique slider switch and allows three simultaneous boom functions: lifting, extending and tool carriage rotation. The adjustable wrist rest reduces operator fatigue.
The door opens at 180° and is made of two parts: both can be fully opened and secured for more air circulation; the lower windows enhance visibility.
Control at 360°
The wide glass surfaces, the super low boom profile, the extension system with internal cylinder and chains and the low position of the stabiliser frame give Komatsu’s telescopic handlers an unrivalled all around visibility. Forks and wheels are well visible from the seat so the operator constantly has a perfect control of the working area.
New concept frame
Thanks to the particular frame design, the boom’s hinging point is the lowest in the market. The Super Low Boom Profile offers unique advantages in terms of stability and visibility, two of the most important features for telescopic handlers.
The CLSS hydraulic system is a closed-centre circuit, with Load Sensing and a variable displacement pump that ensures smooth proportional and combined movements; all this guarantees maximum productivity and minimum consumption. High lifting capacity to the maximum height and reach, both on stabilisers and on tyres. High travel speed and engine torque are set off by the standard Full Power Shift transmission.
Komatsu has developed the WH series giving high importance to stability. The low position of the load centre, the innovative extending system, the wide bearing area and a huge range of stability devices, place the WH range’s lifting performances at the top of its class and guarantee a high safety level for the operators.
Frame levelling keeps the tool carriage horizontal, whatever the ground condition. It reaches angles of 10° on both sides and increases flexibility and lifting performances.
Wide type stabilisers guarantee highest stability on any ground type. Cylinders are well protected inside the frame.
An automatic rear axle oscillation lock enlarges the bearing area, thus increasing both lift performance and security and reducing the risk of lateral tipping. It engages automatically over a 50° boom angle.
The wide steering angle (52°) makes the steering radius, both for tyres and forks, extremely short for a machine in this category. Moreover, when manoeuvring with a Komatsu WH machine, there is no need to worry about its rear overhang: it will always stay well within the wheel radius. 3 steering modes (two-wheel, four-wheel and crab) allow the operator to smoothly and precisely move the machine, under all conditions. To avoid accidental shifting, the steering mode selection is achieved by the simultaneous pushing of two buttons. For each axle a visual warning advises the operator when the wheels are perfectly realigned.
