TracStar® 618

6" IPS - 18" OD (160mm - 450mm)


The TracStar® 618 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 28, 250, and 412 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 6" IPS to 18" OD (180mm to 450mm), the TracStar 618 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 618 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.

Also available is the Automated TracStar 618 Series 2 which guides the operator through a step-by-step procedure for fusing pipe. This option provides automated control over the heat, soak, fuse and cool cycles.
