Simit

The world’s first hydraulic excavator. Mario Bruneri develops the idea of using a hydrostatic pump piston to action an excavator boom. Industrial production of the new “Jumbo” excavator soon begins in Turin. He founded Simit (in italian the abbrevation of Società Italiana Macchine Industriali Torino,), which will design several generations of hydraulic excavators sold around the world and joins Fiat in 1970.
