Revolutionizing the Industry

The TracStar® fusion machines are the number one choice on jobsites fusing pipelines with their ease of maneuverability and freedom of movement. Self-propelled via rubber crawler tracks, these vehicles can traverse rough terrain and grades up to 30%. All of the TracStars are self-contained with all of the necessary electrical equipment on board. The carriage is mounted on the track-driven chassis for easy pipe loading and movement along the pipe. The carriage is also removable so that pipe can be fused on special applications in the ditch. With fusion capabilities of 125mm to 630mm polypropylene pipe, there's a TracStar for a variety of pipe sizes.

TracStar Diesel Engine

Self-Contained Diesel Engine

Enhanced Jobsite Productivity

All TracStar fusion machines are powered by self-contained, liquid-cooled or turbo diesel engines, eliminating the need for a separate generator. Each machine's engine has the fuel tank and operational capacity to perform a full day's work bringing fuel efficiency to the jobsite.

Removable Carriage

Perfect for Confined Spaces

The TracStars incorporate an interchangeable 4-jaw carriage, which can be easily removed for close-quarter fusion. For tight installations, 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.

Track-Mounted Vehicle

Tackles the toughest terrain

The TracStar's rugged, dual rubber tracks bring the best in all-terrain mobility to jobsites. They can travel easily across mud, loose soil, snow and grades of up to 30%. The track system features a zero degree turning radius while evenly dispersing the weight which keeps it from sinking in the soft soil. The tracks minimize damage to concrete and asphalt surfaces, which is a plus on public and private properties. Cranes are eliminated because the TracStars can be driven directly to and from the jobsite from the ramps of a trailer. McElroy makes it easy to adjust the tension on the tracks when needed and the track components, themselves, are replaceable.


On-Board Generator

Eliminates the Need for an External Power Source

By incorporating an on-board generator, the TracStar has everything it needs with the ability to generate its own electricity and hydraulic power. This brings convenience to the operator since they don't have to transport a separate generator.
