TracStar® 1200

The McElroy TracStar® 1200 brings larger pipe capability to its line of self-propelled, track-mounted fusion machines. The TracStar 1200 butt fuses pipe from 16” OD to 48” OD (450mm to 1200mm) and can traverse most any terrain.

The self-contained machine features an on-board generator for powering the heater and facer, which is now positioned between the fixed jaws for easier pipe transfer. The carriage can be easily removed for in-ditch use. The engine is designed with advanced emission control technology that meets the EPA’s latest Tier 4 standards, eliminating the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). An Automatic TracStar 1200 is available upon request.
