Ciężarówka 2BAARS owns the most technologically advanced equipment in the world that is used to conduct CPT soundings. We utilize the equipment from renowned Dutch companies, which are some of the most important CPT and CPTU sounding equipment manufacturers. We own a 200 kN CPT TRUCK on a STEYR car set. Its advantages include ballast chassis, which results in no need for anchoring prior to commencing work. The machine is equipped with a system for drilling, e.g., foundations, breakstone, concrete, asphalt etc.

Furthermore, within our operations we also use a Marchetti’s dilatometer for DMT tests, equipped with a state-of-the-art control system, a seismic module and the only VIDEOCONE in Poland.



Even up to 200 linear metres per day.


On-land and on-water testing.


Investigations in any conditions and location.


Equipment category:

  • first acc. to NGI
  • TC 16 acc. to the Technical Committee
  • first acc. to International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE)
