B175 XP-2

The Casagrande B175 XP-2 is a machine dedicated to giving the specialist contractor equipment to perform large diameter rotary and CFA piling. It is the result of research and innovation based on over 50 years of experience and success of the company in the fi eld of foundations and geotechnical engineering

Due to the high torque of the rotary head, up to 175 kNm, and to a powerful winch, the B175 XP-2 is able to rapidly drill deep and large piles. The crowd winch with a line pull of 280 kN and the stroke of the rotary head of 13,5 m will drive casings deep into the ground with extreme accuracy.

The SPM (Smart Power Management) allows intelligent engine power management in order to improve the performance and productivity of machinery. The XP technology monitors the instantaneous power and hydraulic fl ows and allocates the full available power according to the requirements of the task. The result is an increase in the machine effi ciency.

“Keep the operator happy in a comfortable working environment” is our formula for added productivity. The B175 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.

Technical Innovation

PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTIVITY

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.

FULL LOAD SENSING TECHNOLOGY

The XP-2 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).

SAFETY & TECHNOLOGY

The B175 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.

FLEXIBILITY

The XP-2 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.
