Product Catalogue B240XP-2


The Casagrande B240 XP-2 is a multifunctional hydraulic piling rig for foundation construction by drilling boreholes in rotary piling, Large Diameter Piling (LDP), to insert and extract casings, to power a casing oscillator, for piling by the continuous flight auger method (CFA Rapid), displacement piles (DP) and soil mixing.

Designed and built using the latest state of the of art technology. A machine engineered for the most demanding conditions with particular emphasis on performance efficiencyreliability and economy.

“Keep the operator happy in a comfortable working environment” is our formula for added productivity.

The B240 XP-2 is designed to satisfy the 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 XP hydraulic power system uses the Full Load Sensing (FLS) technology. Unlike the common hydraulic
managing systems, the FLS pressurizes only the required amount of oil requested by users thanks to the back-action between pumps and distributors. It allows to manage the power demands and reduces dissipations, achieving up to the 25% of fuel saving (calculated on the basis of a theoretical working cycle).


The B240 XP-2 has a very low sound emission level as a result of the of sound-absorbing materials 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 last international standards to guarantee the maximum safety of the operations.


The XP control system offers the following advantages for the operator and the supervision of the work: monitoring of all working function, diagnostic of the working systems to ensure the constant monitoring of the status of sensors and components, easy conversion in any drilling arrangement, friendly customization of working functions e.g. mappings of torque and speed for EP rotary head, remote rigs assistance, diagnostic, monitoring of working parameters.
