The first Satellite is developed from the Prepmaster 380 unit. The Satellite 480 Mk1, as it became, was first created by bolting some 7″ cup wheels to a worn out diamond plug and mounting 3 of these under the ole 380!
Realising the successful and durable nature of this system, the machine was developed further to include a floating shroud similar to how we know it today and the first one rolls off the production line in Australia.
