TES CAR was established in 1976 by Mr. Elio Tonti together with his son Sauro. Its origins are anyway indissolubly linked to Trivelsonda, another hystoric company in the drilling field, which had been the forefather of the main current industries producers of drilling machines in the world, and whose charter member since the 60’s was Mr. Elio Tonti. From the big experience matured during the first decade of Trivelsonda, Sauro Tonti wanted to deepen and improve his new ideas and projects which had given birth to the current special drilling rigs “CF Series” and “TES Series”, now famous and approved all around the world.

Manufacturing Process
The manufacturing activity of TES CAR focalized first on the project and construction of hyhdraulic drilling rigs for Micropiles and Soil Investigation, putting on the market the TES Series including several models which respond to the main contractors’ requirements and rise above the competitors thanks to their capability to change their working configuration according to the different jobsites features. Recently the engineers responsible for the TES Series have developped also a brand new machine specific for the water wells drilling and the geothermal power applications.  

After years of research in the drilling field, in 1985 TES CAR put in the market the first “mini-piling rigs” for foundations, now worldwide recognized as “CF Series”. The main feature of this machines line, projected and patended by Mr. Sauro Tonti, is the capability to move and work into limited access areas, narrow spaces, almost treacherous for our competitors. These machines are available with a torque up 6 kNm (600 kgm) to 40 kNm (4000 kgm) and with a weight up 2,5 t to 15 t.

Further to the “mini-piling rigs”, TES CAR offers a medium-size piling rigs range with a torque up 45 kNm (4500 kgm) to 100 kNm (10’000 kgm). As for the Micropiles rigs, the most important feature which makes unique the TES CAR piling rigs, consists in the versatility and in the possibility to convert every machine in several different working configurations. For example, one of the leading-edge models, the “CF6”, can be equipped with Kelly Bar, CFA, Soil Mixing, Pile Driving Hammer, Slurry Wall Grab, Vibrator, Micropiles. It’s easy to realize the enormous advantage for the end-user who can buy the machine base in Kelly bar configuration and then convert it in all the other different settings just buying an additional kit according to the new jobsite features. As a consequence of this, the customer can save a lot of money, but over all he can be much more malleable and open to the different opportunities offered by the construction market.
Further to the drilling rigs, in 1993 TES CAR got into the market of crawler cranes, both with lattice or telescopic boom type. The loading capacity of TES CAR range goes up 4 t to 20 t.

From the marriage of our drilling machines and cranes, in 1995 bourn a special drilling rig for big CFA piles (up to 30m deep with 1200mm diameter). This machine together with other models took the name of “TCA Series” and completed the existing product range.

In 2006 TESCAR enlarged further the range of “TES Series” with a new model, called TES 40/1000, specific for the horizontal drilling. This machine is capable to drill 60m with a max diameter of 1000mm.

On the last 5 years TESCAR has improved and developed all its piling rigs replacing its bases with the latest and most reliable excavator bases such as CASE, HITACHI, CATERPILLAR, BOBCAT, KUBOTA, KOMATSU, EUROCOMACH, adding also brand new crawler bases entirely manufacture by TES CAR.

The experience matured in over 40 years, the continuous technical research, strongly supported by our customers suggestions, the insatiable ambition to improve our quality, lead TES CAR to become the leader in the production and sale of the small-medium size piling machines (with several attempts of imitation…).
Rigs Tailor-Maker
Apart from our standard production line, TES CAR has always accepted, and will always continue to accept it’s customers’ enquiries for special, out of standard, customized rigs. Indeed it’s not the manufacturer who has to face the different jobsites, but the customers, the contractor, the operators, so when we get a new uncommon enquiry for a special rig, well our answer is always “Yes, we can!” And our top satisfaction is to know that our customers succeed in doing a job thanks to the special machine we manufactured for him! This is why many of our customers have nicknamed TES CAR “the Rigs Tailor-Maker”!
