Outlet fusion just got bigger with the Hornet XL. McElroy brings this industry-first, all-in-one tool for polypropylene outlet fusion up a size with branches from 63mm to 160mm on to main sizes 110mm and larger.

An all-in-one design allows the Hornet to self-align on the center of the main pipe while a guided carriage facilitates the drilling of the outlet hole, heating of the pipe and fusion of the fitting without repositioning the machine. The Hornet XL performs in any orientation making it ideal for overhead and vertical fusions in tight spaces and requires only a single operator.
