The Satellite 480 Generation4 is the latest Generation of the Satellite Triple Disc Concrete Grinder and Polishers.
This is Model 3 which is 3 Phase 415V 10A Variable Speed Passive Planetary.

Available on back-order

Satellite 480 G4 is the one of the new range of triple disc concrete floor diamond grinders / polishers designed using the latest CAD technology and over 20 years of customer feedback to provide unrivalled user experience and the ultimate reliability you have come to expect from Satellite.


Awesome new features include;

  • Patented floating head system
  • 360 Degree Lighting around the grinding head
  • Zero Slack Handle Locking mechanism
  • Redesigned HVA display unit
  • Swing weights
  • Ergonomic handle reduces fatigue and protects your hands
  • Protected control switches
  • Phone Holder and charger
  • Enhanced balance and ergonomics of the entire machine
  • New tooling options


This is Model 3 – which is a 3 phase high performance machine with the passive planetary system and is unbelievably powerful and has excellent performance.


Developed and refined over two decades to provide the best performance, this machine has a super efficient transmission and powertrain that has been proven over years of service to provide thousands of hours of uninterrupted service free life and puts as much power to the grinding operation as possible.

Powered by the most efficient 5.5 HP motor, the Satellite 480 G4-3 has a final main disc speed of 480 rpm which makes the Satellite 480 a power to be reckoned with.

The super fast magnetic tooling changeover has been developed by Floorex and refined over 20 years to make it possible to change over the tooling in under 60 seconds with ease without any tools or hammers.

With 360 degree LED lighting around the grinding head, the Satellite G4 makes grinding in dark areas so much easier by lighting up the floor in all directions so you can see what you are grinding, what you have ground and where you are going.

We have also removed the need to adjust the axle height on the Satellite Gen4 models with the patented Auto Head Levelling design which levels the head whilst keeping it steady.

3 Phase Generation 4 Satellite machines come with a intuitive display which has been developed over many years to provide feedback to the user on the running of the machine including;


  • Voltage issues if any
  • The AMPs drawn.
  • The load on the machine
  • Alerts if the emergency stop is pressed.
  • Alerts if the machine is overloaded.
  • Alerts if the motor temperature is too high*.


Satellite Generation 4 also has an improved lifting point and a new Zero Slack handle locking mechanism that increases accuracy of user feedback from the head and also reduces the chances of damage in tough conditions.

The Legendary floating dust shroud provides perfect dust control that works even when there is very little suction flow from you vacuum or dust collector. This shroud adjusts automatically without the user ever having to adjust the height or tighten straps or Velcro strips which keeps the free silica levels down to make sure your jobsite is even safer. 

Exceptionally versatile machine, the Satellite 480 G4 has three tapered plug holes which accepts 3 X 175mm Satellite discs or three turbo plugs or hook and loop pads for polishing or sanding wooden floors. In addition, the new Generation 4 machines include the MAP System (Multi Accessory Point). This MAP System provides the option to install newly developed bush hammer system or other new technology as we develop them into the future. 

Use with the Dustmaster DM-Series 2 motor Dust Extractors for excellent and effective dust control.

Machine packages can be customized to combine it with dust extraction and a range of diamond tooling that can provide you with all you need to start your next project. Ask your team at Floorex for an offer to suit your needs.
