The Number One Choice On The Jobsite

TracStar® 500 Series 3

315mm - 500mm (12" - 20")

The TracStar® 500 Series 3 is designed to offer the utmost maneuverability and flexibility on a jobsite. The robust features include a strong hydraulic facer for fast and efficient facing of pipe ends. The onboard engine and generator powers both the hydraulics and heater.

The TracStar 500 offers a self-contained, self-propelled, track-mounted vehicle that can handle grades up to 30 percent. The machine incorporates a removable carriage for polypropylene fusion operations remote from the vehicle. For installations in limited space, 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.
