TracStar® 28 Series 2

2" IPS - 8" DIPS (63mm - 225mm)


The TracStar® 28 Series 2 has been completely redesigned based on feedback that came directly from the field. The new machine now shares a common vehicle with the 250, 412 and 618 range of TracStars and is powered by a powerful diesel engine – which is especially useful on jobsites where gasoline is not permitted.

Designed to butt fuse pipe sizes from 2” IPS to 8” DIPS (63mm to 225mm), the TracStar 28 Series 2 offers a self-contained, self-propelled, track-mounted vehicle that can handle grades up to 30 percent.

A new cowling design aids in heat dissipation while providing easier access when machine  maintenance is required. An updated electrical system increases the circuit protection and a standard battery disconnect is now incorporated for easy lockout.

The TracStar 28 Series 2 fusion machines incorporate an interchangeable 4-jaw carriage that can be easily removed for in-ditch fusions. 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.

The 28 can be ordered as a Combination Unit (CU) that allows fusion of branch saddles with a maximum base diameter of 9.63” onto any size main. It is also available as an Auto machine.
