As best i could step it off, it appears to be 10.5 ft in dia. The owner stated he had a receiver and remote and when he last used it all worked. It was purchased new 12 years ago for $175.00 and was last used/ moved 5 years ago.
The owner asked me to make an offer. What would be a reasonable offer? I doubt I could recover the wire running to it as it runs under a driveway.

Thanks,
Mike

Looks a lot like a Star Trak dish I once had.........not identical but very similar.
For most like that and in that condition (in need of a little cosmetic TLC) I usually offer to remove the "eyesore" for them. If anything I'd probably not pay more than $50 for it.

I got my last one for nothing and it was already down and taken apart ready for hauling.

I think that is an early "Perfect 10" (also marketed as Laser) dish. Or maybe a later MacGregor dish. They both had the offset style mount like that.

I paid $75 for a 10 foot Unimesh dish a few weeks ago. I didn't even try to negotiate a lower price because the guy was unemployed. The price included the LNB, receiver, and the pole. The pictured dish is different than mine, so its probably not a Unimesh.

I would offer $50 as a starting point.

Looks just like the 10 ft my wife got from the thrift store... already apart and ready to load up and take home. It was missing the feedhorn supports tho.
Came with a perfectly good Venture 36" HD actuator and C-Band Channel Master feed.
$10. :D

You might throw in another $5 for the toy rifle! :D:D:D

Looks like my 10'SAMI, though mines not nearly that in need of painting. That Von Weise actuator is worth the effort, if it still works. Those things are nice, and last!
