A story of great ideas and constant innovation.

Fuchs – this name not only stands for innovative and highly efficient loading machines of excellent quality, but also for a decades-long history, which is characterized by pioneering achievements in technology. As early as the 1960s, the Fuchs® Bagger 301 was one of the best-selling and most popular excavators, and in 1975, the company received the patent for the newly developed height-adjustable and swiveling cab. So it's no wonder that the spirit of the company is still characterized by great innovative strength.
