The Mailam company of Musile di Piave (Venezia), Italy was founded in the 1950s by Dr. Seggatini. The Dr. and his Chief engineer had experience of Caterpillar and International Crawler tractors and they used that to design two industrial crawlers. A 67 hp (50 kW) 670 model and a 55 hp (41 kW) 655 model. In 1966 they brought out a new model the Mailam 5001 based on the new Preforce Ford 5000 skid unit.[1]

The Mailam 5001 was built in a 60 hp (45 kW) 4-cylinder and a 115 bhp 6-cylinder version, and offered with bulldozer blade or just as a crawler tractor. They were built with Berco track units and fitted with multidisc slewing clutches.

Mailam produce also tracked dozer and loaders based on Mailam farm models.
