Customer Question
We have a komatsu...

We have a komatsu WB 140, when operating in forward motion it worked fine when shifted the steering wheel lever to reverse it would not move. shift the lever back to forward still no movement. did this 4 or 5 times and nothing happened. shut of the machine and let it sit for a few minutes and it would not do anything to start.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I don't have it at the moment, will have to go out side and get it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes for a couple of days prior the shifter seemed not to engage the transmission for a brief moment then would start working.. serial number b1795 model wb140 I think.
