Default Pipe welder

this machine is made by Mcelroy in america ,and is one of a pair the Docwras purchased early last year ,we were one of the first gangs to use it on a job in basingstoke ,it is a great machine and makes welding larger pipe much easier ,it will do upto 500mm pipe and is all self contained
unlike the usual way of doing it
cost was around 50k
cheers graham
