In 1962, the GDR Council of Ministers decided to develop a new tractor to improve agriculture. With the target of 100 HP and a pulling force of 14,000 kN, the tractor should achieve the "highest level in the world".
The first functional model of the ZT 300 was then available for extensive tests in 1964. In 1967 the ZT 300 was tested by Dipl. Ing. Erwin Stieglitz by the Central Test Center for Agricultural Engineering Potsdam-Bornim and achieved a positive test result in July 1967. The chief designer, Dipl. Ing. Reinhard Blumenthal, and the team at the Schönebeck tractor factory have developed the ZT 300, a modern and powerful tractor that went into series production that same year. At the beginning of the 80s there were a total of 35,000 ZTs, which were only followed in 1978 by the improved ZT 320/323, which went into series production from 1984. However, since it received no major innovations except for the appearance, the connection to the world standard was lost.
