Default Replacing my 1.1 mtr Triax dish

I am thinking about upgrading my dish.
I currently have the Triax 1.1 mtr.

Would a Gilbertini 1.25 be much of an improvemnt?

Size is an issue as it will need to be mounted looking over a single storey building.

The increase in size and the quality of the Gibertini dish will give better results for sure. Are the gains going to be enough to justify the cost though ?

Of course, bigger dish is always better. But, keep in mind, that Gibertini 1.25 does not mean it is 1,25m dish , this is only sellers trick. It may be little bigger than 1,2m but smaller than 1,25m.
But, anyway, Gibertini 1.25 will perform ~20% better that Triax 1.1m

I think I am going to get one.

My Triax is very heavy and difficult to adjust elevation because of the weight.

The Gibertini only weighs 4kg. The Triax is nearer 13kg, so it will be easier to adjust the elevation. I can also keep using my dark motor supreme or whatever it is called.

Wait... what?
Genuine Gibertini 125 has weight much more than 10kg. Any good ~1.2m dish has weight more than 10kg. Check official site http://www.gibertini.it/ for correct data.

About a motor... if you can i suggest you go with an actuator... Big dishes dont like wind...

Agree with @VodzigorLans, for 1,2m dish it is better to have polar-mount and actuator. BTW, Channel Master 1,2m weights 10kg and it is very durable dish, it can sustain any weather conditions and needs only washing after years of usage.

Not correct. The newer Gibertini dishes are made out of aluminium and a 1.25mtr weighs only 4kg. My solid steel Triax 1.1 weighs about 13kg.

Still bigger than my Triax and it would be difficult to go larger for me due to location of dish.

Surely, 121cm will perform better than 110cm, that is axiom of SAT-TV. Of course, antenna's adjustment should be correct.
