Third generation of TracStar 500

Fifteen years ago, McElroy introduced the world’s first self-contained, self-propelled, allterrain fusion machine in the TracStar 500. Now, McElroy is releasing the third generation of the machine. The McElroy TracStar 500 Series 3 features major additions over previous models. The fusion machine is capable of fusing thermoplastic pipes from 6-to 20-inch (180- to 500-mm) IPS in outer diameter. New standard features include an indexer-mounted heater and facer, economy engine throttle setting and hydraulic clamping. The fusion carriage can be removed and lowered into a ditch for fusions in tight spaces. An Automatic TracStar 500 Series 3 will be available as well, with both versions capable of recording fusion parameters with a McElroy DataLogger.
