just need some reviews on what u all think is the best motor for the 1.1m dish ? been looking into SUPERIOR DARK MOTOR METAL GEAR DiSEqC 1.2/1.3 USALS, is this a good motor or are there any better than this? [h=1][/h]

It has good reviews but I think some have issues.

TM2300 and TM2600 (metal gears) are recommended too.

From an installers angle, go for the 2600. From what I have seen, the dark motor has a noticeable backlash out of the box ;)

I'd also consider a Clarke Tech which I've been using on my 1.2M Laminas dish for over a couple of years now. The only problem I've had is the dish moving round the motor stub in extreme winds. The motor is rock solid.

I would recommend the STAB either HH100 or HH120 probably the only Diseqc motor to come with a 3 year warranty

LOL. When moving it's rock solid......though that's me being oxymoronic...

I thought you had bought the polar mount and actuator for it ?

To stop the motor moving around the pole, drill a hole and put a bolt through it ?

No wod, I might have thought about it but right now, prefer using USALS. If the Laminas does have a design flaw it's clamps up to the motor stub are poorly made and thought out. I have had the motor moving slightly on the pole but usually a slight longitude alteration puts it right.

I'm quite impressed with my New Horizons motor. Its quicker than my old TM 2300 although its yet to experience high wind. The old TM2300 lasted through 4 or 5 strong gales with no issues at all.

AFAIK, the NH is a 2600 clone Nano.

It doesn't appear to have a huge amount in common with the Moteck 2100a. The drive stub is a different size and the motor is a lot faster. It does also appear to be more accurate on the fringe satellites than the old TM-2300 or Moteck 2100a was :D

Only time will tell if it will last as long as the old TM-2300. The outer case of the motor is about the only thing it has in common with the 2100a.
