You'd need to be more specific: There are loads of different L brackets and some will be sturdier than others.

I wouldn't personally go for one, having had a bad experience with one on my first motorised setup. But as it's a fixed dish you might find it's ok. Better to go for T&K brackets and a suitable diameter pole. Does the Visiosat go on a standard diameter pole or a larger one that a Wave Frontier uses?

I personally dislike them but there are good ones, especially ones with supporting legs (these are usually with 76mm diameter pole). They are also trickier to get vertical than T&K brackets.

Should I leave that up to the installer then?

I think this dish can take between 40 to 60mm poles.

My last one was on T&Ks with a 2" scaffold pole. They need a plumb mast to be set up easily and L type brackets are notoriously bad for that.

I had my own motorised dish on an L shaped bracket for more than 2 years and never had an issue , i also put one up for someone about 5 years ago and the same .. no issues . I would go for T&k's but sometimes the location , shape of the wall , dictates the brackets you use .

Also, the Big Bisat is a very heavy dish.:)

My T90 is on a 60mm L-bracket. It wouldn't have any trouble supporting a 10kg dish like the Bisat.

Here is a picture of my standard 50mm L-bracket that I use for most of my fixed installs. My guess is it could support that dish pretty easily.

I have something similar to Huevos above in the shed with two little support arms I would highly recommend, I got it with a 1mtr orbital dish that was sat in a exposed area through the gales we had here in the uk 2 yrs ago, I will post a picture up tomorrow :)

Did you have to include your installation vehicle in the photo as well??

I've seen this type in use - it's quite sturdy.

I personally prefer T and K, but yes it was sturdy with a 1mtr dish sat on it.

Not keen on that mount at all. If just one fixing fails the dish will come completely loose.
