  1. Mark Jones

    After recent comments from a client I wish to pass on some positive feedback.

    MRJ have been using Floorex Satellite 480 grinders/Polishers for 6 Years.

    Prior to Switching to Floorex equipment, we were using other brands of grinder/polishers that were very costly with ongoing repairs.

    We have been involved in a wide variety of projects from commercial to residential and have found that satellite 480 grinders allow us to provide a level of workmanship that many of our clients expect that we could only deliver if we were using larger 3 Phase Type machines.

    This was echoed recently on a residential project where we were engaged to undertake a restoration of a recently complete polished concrete floor that was finished to a very low standard by another contractor.

    The end result delivered by using the satellite 480 Machines was outstanding, with comments from the client that they could not believe we achieved what we did with smaller single phase grinder/polisher compared to the larger machines as used by the previous contractor.

    MRJ will continue to support Floorex as our business grows.

    We like the Floorex Satellite 480. Had some other brands in the past but threw out at the local waste facility. Floorex maintenance is very low cost

  3. Adelaide Flooring Contractor

    The trouble with these machines is they never break! The cost of maintenance is next to nil. We have 7 of these (some are older generations) that are out nearly every day.

  4. Epoxy Floor contractor

    I flog my 480 mercilessly day in day out…..can’t kill it! Still going strong after 9 years and thousands and thousands of prep metres.

  5. Demolition Company, Wellington NZ Region

    I have used concrete grinders throughout my career and I can state that the Satellite-480 is by far the best grinder I have ever used. The ease of operation, the disc exchange system, the results they all add up to the best machine I’ve ever used.

  6. Chris D

    Matt and the Floorex team are very knowledgeable and are so dedicated to correct information. I’ve found my “go to” supplier. Having the Sat-480 and Met-250 for years now, time speaks for itself. Thanks guys! Chris
