The WA500-8 Yard Loader adds to the proven design and technology of the WA500-8 to help move even more material faster, move more trucks out of the yard, and move your business forward. The WA500-8 Yard Loader is configured with a large capacity bucket that is optimized based on material density with up to 9.8 yd3 capacity, additionally a large capacity bucket cylinder provides increased power and control to help handle those big loads. Added stability comes from 875/65 tires that increase ground contact and feature a low profile sidewall that reduces flex for added stability while dumping into trucks or hoppers. An additional counterweight also adds to the improved stability and allows the increased capacity of the bucket, while the front and rear brake cooling system helps to control brake temperatures in higher speed applications to ensure optimum performance in load and carry situations.
