The idea to build a new wheel tractor originated in 1968 in an East Bohemian cooperative farm Dolany near Jaroměř. It came from the local renowned designer and mechanizer Karel Žďárský, who later became one of the co-founders of Farmet. The idea was to use the existing parts from LIAZ trucks. The first model was presented to the public at the Brno Engineering Fair in 1969. The ŠT 180 tractor was made in 1979 and is exhibited by courtesy of Farmet.
