The WA600-6 has two features that make it standout as a top producer in quarries across North America. The operator uses his left pedal to control the modulated clutch which makes it easy to control the massive tractive effort to reduce tire slippage, reduce shift shock and control speed when truck loading. Advanced joystick control puts fast but precise control at the operator’s left hand.
