McElroy TracStar 1200 Pipe-fusion Machine With Onboard Generator

May 17, 2017

The self-contained McElroy TracStar 1200 is a track-mounted, self-propelled pipe-fusion machine that can handle pipe with outside diameters from 16 to 48 inches.

The machine uses an on-board generator for powering the heater and facer, which is positioned between the fixed jaws for easier pipe transfer. The carriage can be removed for in-ditch use. Machine features include a 74-horsepower, air-cooled, Tier 4-Final diesel engine, Centerline Guidance System for equal distribution of force around the joint, three- or four-jaw configurations, hydraulic outriggers, and wireless remote driving control.
