The Gibertini website doesn't appear to show any dishes like that - especially the thin feedarm, because the feedarms on all those on the website are more substantially/heavily built. @Channel Hopper may know more/better?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Doesn't look like a Gibertini to me, Maxx Digital Lite 120 ?

Look at the paintwork and the corrosion on the elevation adjustment

Kathrein have a unique way of attaching their LNB. It's also nothing like a standard 40mm LNB shape. Perhaps you should be looking at a differing manufacturer who produces an aluminum or fibre reflector. The larger Gibertinis are aluminum and Laminas are fibre glass. However, the mounting brackets in both cases are steel. The Laminas 1200 (which I have) is 8kg with the AzEl mount.

Thanks for your info, i check gibertini but its heavier and maybe so big than this kathrein.
i found this adaptor

The dish comes with a lnb but checking the specifications are 0.8db noise i never tested this kind of lnbs but 0.8db seems too much. Maybe it works fine because seems good dishes this kathrein.

Let see because i can get the dish only for 30€ so is a good price and its in a good conditions as is second hand.

Yes laminas is only 8kg but i dont know if i can get it on those prices even here in Spain maybe is difficult to be found.

i think measure 5.5cm the shaft, and i think its original stab HH120 im going to buy from a reseller thats why i have not too much info although the seller say that its for 1.2m dish lets see i bought only for 40€ then and its new without use. Even if its 100HH could fit to my new dish which weight its 13.4kg.

The manufacuturer i found out that is daxis.
