The McElroy Acrobat — a hydraulic butt fusion machine originally designed for the plumbing and mechanical industry — is now available for the underground/construction market.
The McElroy TracStar® Series 2 machines are ideal for fusing long polyethylene pipelines installed with slip-lining, pipe bursting and directional drilling technologies. They are easy to maneuver on the jobsite, having everything needed on board including a generator to provide electricity and hydraulic power. The TracStars are self-propelled on a rugged, dual track system which offers greater freedom of movement even across rugged terrain. Each machine’s diesel engine has the fuel tank and operational capacity to perform a full day’s work bringing fuel efficiency to the jobsite. The TracStars are offered in a wide range of pipe sizes from 2” IPS to 48” OD pipe.
McElroy has unleashed the Talon 2000, designed to revolutionize the way large-diameter thermoplastic pipelines are built.
