The 414EP is one of the most versatile electric machines on the market today. Its sturdy rectangular frame design provides a rigid and safe fusion platform from which it can handle most fittings, including the fabrication of 12 inch elbows. Its carriage assembly is powered by an electrically driven hydraulic system with a proprietary manifold and gear pump for high reliability. The 414EP is easy to learn and operate. And like all Connectra machines you can expect low maintenance costs and a rapid return on your investment.


  • Unique manifold system with a frame-integrated fluid tank prevents overheating of hydraulic oil.
  • Preset three individual pressure zones for facing, heating and fusion cycles.
  • System has 14,136 pounds of total interfacial force to handle any job.
  • Ball bearing facer design driven by a durable electric motor beefy enough to cut thick walled pipe.
  • Three-clamp unit quick-releases for in-the-ditch work.
  • Hydraulic front pipe lifter with an optional rear manually operated pipe lifter.
  • Ported for the DataConnect or other competitive data recorders.
  • Rugged design with no “bells and whistles” means less maintenance expense.
  • A superior piece of equipment at an extraordinary price.
  • Limited three-year warranty.


Ask us about: An integrated side fusion adapter is optional equipment as is a rear pipe lifter.

Connectra offers a complete range of accessories for the 414EP. Ask about reducing and mitered inserts, (available in IPS, DIPS and metric), stub end holder, and pipe stands.
