Casagrande’s new series of XP-2 hydraulic piling rigs are designed and built using the latest state-of the-art techniques. A range of machines engineered to satisfy the needs of the most demanding contractor with emphasis on performance, reliability and economy.

The Casagrande B470 XP-2 is a multifunction machine designed to drill boreholes, to insert and extract casings, to power a casing oscillator, for piling by the continuous flight auger method and ready for conversion in diaphragm wall equipment.

Due to the high torque of the rotary head of up to 470 kNm, the HD kelly bars and a powerful winch, the B470 XP-2 can rapidly drill deep and large piles in hard soils. The crowd winch will drive casings deep into the ground with extreme accuracy having a line pull of 660 kN and rotary head stroke of 26 m.

“Keep the operator happy in a comfortable working environment” is our formula for added productivity. The B470 XP-2 is designed to satisfy the severe European Union standards on safety and is manufactured to comply with the ISO 9001 requirements on quality.


The Smart Power Management (SPM) is an intelligent engine power management system that improves performances and productivity of the machinery. The SPM system monitors the momentary power flows and immediately allocates the available power to the different jobs, so the operation function has always the maximum power available.


The new XP-2 series hydraulic and electronic systems can directly control the performance of the hydraulic pumps in order to achieve efficient, precise and rapid execution of all operations. The powerful diesel engine uses a highly efficient coupler to transmit the required power to the latest generation of hydraulic pumps, whilst ensuring reduced pollutant emissions and minimal fuel consumption. The hydraulic system layout, combined with specific chosen components has optimized efficiency leading to reduced load losses and fuel consumption.


The new superstructure has been designed with manual canopy openings for quick and easy access during inspections and maintenance. Optional Stairs, platforms and railings provide excellent and safe accessibility to the engines, hydraulic and electronic systems and winches for inspection and maintenance. Optional cameras and display monitors give the operator full visibility of the winches, the sides and rear of the machine.


The XP-2 control system offers a number of advantages for the operator including: monitoring of all working functions and parameters, diagnostics of the working systems to ensure constant monitoring of the sensor and component status, easy conversion to any drilling arrangement using the control system: there is no need for manual intervention when changing drilling settings, customization of the working parameters, remote rig assistance, diagnostics, monitoring of the working parameters.
