Launched in the middle of the 1970s in various European countries on a very small scale, mini excavators first found wide-scale acceptance in Switzerland. Of all European markets, Switzerland was the first to reach the stage where the pioneer buyers impressed users enough to make the machine a common sight. Ammann was among the earliest suppliers, selling Yanmar mini excavators there from the very early 1980s.
