The blower-chopper Saturn was manufactured by Jan Matějka Pelhřimov. The company was founded as a repair shop in 1896. Later it started to produce simple agricultural machines and gradually expanded its portfolio. The company ceased to exist in 1948 when it became a part of Agrostroj Pelhřimov. Agrostroj continued to produce blower-choppers, including the Saturn blower-chopper.
