A Revolution in
Large Diameter Pipe

McElroy’s biggest machine to date — the Talon brings a revolutionary new way to fuse large-diameter pipe that is in growing demand to replace aging infrastructures and increase capacity for a variety of today's applications. The machine features a self-propelled vehicle with the unique ability to safely lift pipe from the ground, position it to be fused and move from joint to joint down the pipeline. It features a quick-action facer and an electric-powered indexer to accurately and safely position the heater and facer into the fusion machine.

Innovative Jaw Design

Innovative Jaw Design

Self Loads Pipe From The Ground

The Talon 2000 rethinks the way large-diameter pipe jobsites function. Its unique design and innovative jaw capability allow the machine to pick up pipe sticks from the ground and align them in the machine without the use of added heavy equipment — greatly increasing efficiency on the job and promoting a safer working environment when handling large-diameter pipe.

Self-Contained & Self-Propelled

Designed for Pipelining

Made to be driven from joint-to-joint down the pipeline, the Talon is completely self-contained with a diesel engine and on-board generator — eliminating the need for added power on site. The machine is self-propelled by a set of rugged steel tracks. A wireless remote control ensures safe, efficient operations and precise machine placement. It also features terrain following and pitch control to better align pipe on uneven ground.

Familiar Controls Make Operations Simple

The Talon's fusion operations are controlled at a touch-screen operator station which has been designed to mimic the controls of other McElroy hydraulic machines — creating a familiar, understandable interface. When maintenance is required, McElroy technicians can remotely access the Talon to offer real-time troubleshooting on the jobsite.*

Record Fusion Joint Data

DataLogger® Vault™ Compatible

The Talon includes a built-in data logging feature that records all fusion joint data to ensure proper fusion procedures have been followed prior to installation, which is a growing jobsite requirement. Records are accessible in the DataLogger® Vault™*, a secure server on the internet which allows quick and easy sorting, tagging, sharing and storage of joint records by machine, joint, operator, device or job.
