McElroy TracStar Fusion Equipment
The McElroy TracStar® fusion machines are the number one choice for fusing long pipelines on jobsites. They are easy to maneuver and move freely. They are self-propelled via rubber crawler tracks, making it easy for these vehicles to travel easily across rough terrains like mud, loose soil, snow, as well as grades of up to 30%. The track system features a zero-degree turning radius while evenly dispersing the weight which keeps it from sinking in the soft soil. The tracks minimize damage to concrete and asphalt surfaces, which is a plus on public and private properties. Cranes are eliminated because the TracStars can be driven directly to and from the jobsite from the ramps of a trailer. McElroy makes it easy to adjust the tension on the tracks when needed and the track components are replaceable.
McElroy’s TracStars are self-contained with all of the necessary electrical equipment on board. By incorporating an on-board generator, the TracStar has everything it needs with the ability to generate its own electricity and hydraulic power. This brings convenience to the operator since they do not have to transport a separate generator. The carriage is mounted on the track-driven chassis for easy pipe loading and movement along the pipe. The carriage is also removable so that pipe can be fused on special applications in the ditch. The TracStar has fusion capabilities of 2” IPS to 48” OD pipe. There is a TracStar for most any job size. The TracStars incorporate an interchangeable 4-jaw carriage, which can be easily removed for close-quarter in ditch fusion. For tight installation, the outer fixed jaw and skid can be removed from the carriage converting it to a 3-jaw carriage for an even more compact fusion unit.
McElroy equipment is built to withstand the toughest environments our industry encounters. McElroy is confident their machines will perform to the best of its capabilities, and therefore, give each piece of equipment a 5-year warranty, which is the longest available in the industry.
The McElroy TracStar 1200 provides unmatched productivity within its size range capable of fusing 16" - 48" pipe.
All TracStar fusion machines are powered by self-contained, liquid-cooled or turbo diesel engines. Each machine’s engine has the fuel tank and operational capacity to perform a full day’s work bringing fuel efficiency to the jobsite. McElroy’s newest and largest model, the TracStar 1200 is equipped with an advanced emission control engine that meets the EPA’s latest Tier 4 standards, eliminating the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
