Default 80cm Dish or Zone 2 Dish in UK

I think the max dish size I can have is 80cm (due to a few constraints), is there much difference between an elliptical zone 2 dish (that I believe is 80cm, please correct me i I am wrong) or a round 80cm dish?

Many thanks

A zone 2 dish is 60cm.
What is stopping your from going slightly larger? Building? Trees?
Have you look at the possibility of mounting the dish somewhere different?

I am going to be doing it on the ground floor of an outback building, if I go larger, doors and windows etc will get in the way.

The roof is an option, but I will have to get a professional installer, so the cost will be much more.

I live in an area where we have a lot of high winds, so a mesh dish will be ideal. Are there any specific brands you would recommend?

Also, is the TM-2600 M2 a good motor to consider worth buying?
