1. McElroy TracStar iSeries fusion machines

McElroy’s TracStar iSeries fusion machines have improved mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and control systems. The iSeries is powered by the new FusionGuide Control System that offers three levels of control, from operator-controlled to completely automatic, machine-controlled operations. The DataLogger 7 is completely integrated with the iSeries, ensuring that each fusion joint is recorded and complies with the fusion standard. The TracStar 630i, 900i and 1200i cover three size ranges from 8-inch iron pipe to 48-inch outside diameter. All are equipped with a new and quieter Perkins (Caterpillar) engine that meets U.S. Tier 4 environmental regulations while providing greater torque. The system pressure was raised to more than 3,000 psi for more powerful ground drive, pipe lifts and other functions that use higher levels of pressure. 918-836-8611;

2. Reed CPDWW compact, cordless power drive

The lightweight yet powerful CPDWW cordless power drive from Reed adapts to drilling and tapping machines or attaches to exercise valves. Around 15 pounds, the cordless power drive is easy to handle and provides impressive torque. For operator safety, there is a power kick-off feature. The Reed VOKUCLUTCH utility clutch can be added for valve work, or the Reed TMPDA adapter can be added to connect to Reed and other common tapping or drilling machines. Since it is cordless, there are no tangles in tight spaces from power cords or air lines. Battery power eliminates the need for extra equipment on the truck, and the compact unit fits easily into ditches. 800-666-3691;
