The C16 XP-2 is the new Casagrande drill rig designed and manufactured to tackle the larger projects in the field of foundation and is suited for constructing anchors, micropiles, CFA piles and jet-grouting.

The rig’s upper structure is connected to the undercarriage by a slew ring making the C16 XP-2 a machine highly manoeuvrable machine, easy to sett up on the most confined sites.

The SPM – Smart Power Management – and the full load sensing hydraulic system allow an intelligent engine power management to improve performance of the machinery and reduce fuel consumption. Available in hydraulic and full radio-controlled version, the new C16 XP-2 is designed thinking of the operator.


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 required jobs, so the main function has the maximum power available.



The C10 XP-2 has a very low sound emission level due to the sound-absorbing materials used and oil heat exchangers, designed for reducing the overall noise level. The layout of the machine and the wide openings of the canopy offer comfortable and easy access for inspection and maintenance. The machine conforms to the latest international standards to guarantee the maximum operating safety.


The XP-2 hydraulic power system uses the Full Load Sensing (FLS) technology. Unlike the common hydraulic managing systems, the FLS only pressurizes the required amount of oil needed thanks to the feedback between pumps and distributors. Thus allowing the management of the power demands and reduces dissipation, achieving up to 25% fuel saving (calculated on the basis of a theoretical working cycle).


The XP-2 control system offers the following advantages for the operator:

  1. monitoring of all working function,
  2. diagnostic of the working systems to ensure the constant monitoring of the status of sensors and components,
  3. easy conversion in any drilling arrangement,
  4. friendly customization of working functions e.g. mappings of torque and speed for EP rotary head,
  5. remote rigs assistance,
  6. diagnostic, monitoring of working parameters.
