McElroy’s largest machine in the TracStar lineup has everything the operator needs to fuse 16in OD to 48in OD (450mm to 1200) pipe efficiently and effectively.

The TracStar 1200 is a self-contained, remote-controlled vehicle that is equipped with an onboard generator. This is a huge benefit since it eliminates having to transport an external power source. It’s also incredibly easy to manoeuvre on almost any job site, with its self-propelled rubber crawler tracks that can handle rough terrain and grades up to 30%.

For ease of mobility, freedom of movement and getting the job done right, there’s nothing like the TracStar. Here’s what you get with a TracStar 1200:

  • An onboard generator to power the heater and facer
  • Easy removal of 3- or 4-jaw carriage for in-ditch/close-quarter use
  • Engine available with advanced emission control technology
  • DataLogger® compatibility
  • Hydraulic outriggers for machine stability and levelling
  • Dual hydraulic pipe lifts to aid in loading and unloading pipe
  • Serrated jaws and inserts to keep pipe from slipping
  • Hydraulic pivoting heater and facer
  • Wireless remote driving control
  • Dual-speed tracks
  • Ergonomic operator platform
  • Cowling designed for easy access to the engine for maintenance
  • Remote engine stop/start capabilities
  • Patented Centerline Guidance System for equal distribution of force around the joint
