hi m8
 
Its better to ask people you will purchase your dish from.They know better  about the polar mount and motor type.

orse m8, I think you are pushing it with an H/H mount especialy if it is a wall mount.
If your mount is the heavy duty jaeger 1224 supermount you might stand a bit of a chance.
If it is the jaeger 99 or 128 it is not up to the job.
If it is a ground mount and in a shelterd position from the wind i suppose you could risk it but with a dish that size you would be much better with a actuator arm and polar mount.
One windy day somebody might be reporting that they have seen a flying saucer flying across the skies.
 
Sorry m8

hi m8
 
its not easy to answer your last one.Depends on where we originate so there are many sources to get/buy things from.I get whatever i need  from our mother company(biggest in Scandinavia).I dont even pay most of gear since i test them,before we release them to the market.And when i buy so price is much much under market price.For example:A 85 cm dish with 0.3 lnb(gold master _it works as good as invacom(almost)):300 sek.
'i hope its your answer  concerning me.
 
 
 
regards

This will take you to the 1224 mount and the price.
