McElroy’s Talon 2000 tackles the challenges of fusing large-diameter thermoplastic pipe from 54” OD – 2,000mm. It has the ability to lift pipe from the ground with its powerful jaws as the machine adjusts its height and orientation to correctly align and fuse pipe. It is a self-propelled vehicle, eliminating the need for cranes. It straddles the pipeline as a wireless remote control operator moves it from fusion to fusion. It is self-contained and powered by an ultra-low sulfur diesel engine that provides electric and hydraulic power.
