Connectra Outrider 1500 Product Details & Specs


The outrider 1500 is designed for quick and accurate fusing of 1/2" through 4" sidewall fittings and outlets on all sizes and densities of polyolefin pipe. Its lightweight design allows one person operation, even in confined ditch space. The machine's mechanical/hydraulic load cell applies up to 1500 pounds of fusion force through the centerline of the fitting for consistent fusion force. The outrider 1500 consists of the fusion unit and fitting holder. Accessories for the unit include rounding shell assemblies to fit 2" or 4" pipe, and a chain shell assembly with bolster plates that accommodates 1-1/4" through 6" pipe.
