The history of excavators, goes back far into the beginning of the 19th century. It was during this period that the first steam engine was invented, designed for digging trenches, creating embankments and quarrying.
The device was called the Otis Shovel, since it was an American engineer, William Otis, who started the conveyor production of excavators, then moving on a railway track.
In the 20s of the twentieth century, excavators put on a tracked course. In the middle of the last century, crawler excavators produced about 5 firms, today more than 100 firms produce mining and small-sized tracked vehicles.
One of the leading positions among the companies producing excavators is the American company GEHL.
