Excavators which featured hydraulics originated in France in the early 50’s, and represented breakthrough technology. Older types used a system of pulleys which were unreliable and less efficient. A few years later, innovative engineers produced excavators that could revolve 360 degrees. This enabled an enhanced visual range for the operator, and allowed digging using a circular motion where required.
These modifications were introduced by French company ‘Poclain, and by the 1970’s these revolutionary hydraulic systems were the standard for all mini excavators.
