Benny was an Italian company that built two models of towable excavator during the 1980's. The 3-S was a typical towable digger with separate trailer,130 degree slew and a range of accessories much like the offerings from other companies such as Powerfab.

The 3-S was equipped with a petrol engine but diesel and electric motor options were also available. The brochure shows an ultra narrow bucket for pipeline work and a trolley for pulling the digger through narrow doorways.
Benny produced another micro called the Benny 180 but we don't have any information about that machine.
The 4-S was a 360 degree machine with four hydraulic legs very similar to the Powerfab 360W or Mitchell Cotts machine.
