TracStar® 618

200mm - 450mm (8" - 18")

The TracStar 618 Series 2 has been completely redesigned based on feedback that came directly from the field. The new machine now shares the same vehicle with the 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 polypropylene pipes and fittings from 200mm — 450mm (8”-18”), the TracStar 618 Series 2 offers a self-contained, selfpropelled, 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.
