Handling pipe and using it effectively means having the right heavy duty tools to get the job done. McElroy’s fusion machines are among the most sought after and used in the industry. We’re taking a closer look at a pair of machines that could help streamline and improve your workflow in 2018.
The TracStar 618 has been used for years in the industry and McElroy recently added some spit and polish to the venerable machine based on comments provided by its customers. The machine features a cowling design intended to improve heat dissipation and its maintenance has also received an upgrade thanks to changes in access. Circuit protection improvements have been made to the electrical system while the incorporated battery disconnect has been tweaked for a simpler lockout. You can purchase the 618 with a low, medium, or high force cylinder plus the option of hydraulic or manual clamping.
Here’s a trivia question: What was the world’s first fusion machine able to be mounted on a track system? If you guessed the TracStar 500, you’re right! A McElroy flagship, the most recent models are all about giving your productivity a massive jolt. A machine-powered facer and heater, standard hydraulic clamping, and an engine throttle setting to maximize fuel usage are a few of the new TracStar 500 features.
