The McElroy TracStar® 412 Series 2 has been completely redesigned based on feedback that came directly from the field. The new machine now shares a common vehicle with the 28, 250, and 618 range of TracStars and is powered by a powerful diesel engine – which is especially useful on jobsites where gasoline is not permitted.
Designed to butt fuse pipe sizes from 4" IPS to 12" DIPS (110mm to 340mm), the TracStar 412 Series 2 offers a self-contained, self-propelled, track-mounted vehicle that can handle grades up to 30 percent.
A new cowling design aids in heat dissipation while providing easier access when machine maintenance is required. An updated electrical system increases the circuit protection and a standard battery disconnect is now incorporated for easy lockout.
A hydraulic clamping kit is available for all TracStar® 412 models. Add HC to the end of the part number or select the Hydraulic Clamping option when customizing your machine package.
The TracStar 412 Series 2 fusion machines incorporate an interchangeable 4-jaw carriage that can be easily removed for in-ditch fusions. For tight installations, 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.
Also available is the Automated TracStar 412 Series 2 which guides the operator through a step-by-step procedure for fusing pipe. This option provides automated control over the heat, soak, fuse and cool cycles. A hydraulic clamping option is also available.
