All TracStar fusion machines are powered by self-contained, liquid-cooled or turbo diesel engines. Each machine's engine has the fuel tank and operational capacity to perform a full day's work bringing fuel efficiency to the jobsite. McElroy's newest and largest model, the TracStar 1200, is equipped with an advanced emission control engine that meets the EPA's latest Tier 4 standards, eliminating the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
The TracStars incorporate an interchangeable 4-jaw carriage, which can be easily removed for close-quarter, in-ditch fusion. 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 TracStar's rugged, dual rubber tracks bring the best in all-terrain mobility to jobsites. They can travel easily across mud, loose soil, snow and grades of up to 30%. The track system features a zero degree turning radius while evenly dispersing the weight which keeps it from sinking in the soft soil.
The tracks minimize damage to concrete and asphalt surfaces, which is a plus on public and private properties. Cranes are eliminated because the TracStars can be driven directly to and from the jobsite from the ramps of a trailer. McElroy makes it easy to adjust the tension on the tracks when needed and the track components, themselves, are replaceable.
By incorporating an on-board generator, the TracStar has everything it needs with the ability to generate its own electricity and hydraulic power. This brings convenience to the operator since they don't have to transport a separate generator.
