VEB Kombinat Fortschritt (Neustadt i.S.) was established in 1951 by merging the production of several plants. It became one of the major producers of agricultural machinery in East Germany. The E 301 mower conditioner was equipped with a lifting device that allowed the machine to adapt to the terrain, and a drum feeder that immediately arranged the cut grass into rows. The cutting height ranged from 50 to 120 mm. A new model of the E 302 was introduced presumably in 1985.
