Was looking at TradeMe, at Satellite dish costs, as I wanted to look beyond the D1, and never did I expect to find this.




50c, for what looks like a 3m Mesh.

Now the next question is how do I go about dismantling the thing, and what tools are required?

I bought a 2.4m mesh dish a while ago. If you can I suggest you go and see the dish and spray every nut and bolt with CRC a few days before you dismantle it. Tools required are a socket set ,a selection of screwdrivers and large and small crescent.
I found it easier to take the dish off the pole first then dismantle it. For this you need 2 stepladders and someone to help.
Getting the pole out of the ground could be hard yakker depending on how much concrete there is !
Good luck!

I suggest that you ask the vendors what size it is, so that you can organise transportation. It may be bigger than you think.

I have to ask ... what do you want it for?
