    This is a great dolly and companion for any tripod with rubber tipped feet.

    The one shortcoming of this dolly is the bearings that allow the direction of the wheels to change are lose and dry-meaning they transmit bearing noise and movement through the tripod and ultimately to the footage shot on it with every direction change-the good news is a daub of silicone grease on each and a couple of rotations around their axis takes care of the noise and movement.
    The good:
    1) It adds 5" to the height of what ever you use it with.
    2) The clamps to attach the dolly to any rubber tipped feet are seriously secure-and stable.
    3) The dolly has two folding arms with snap locks to hold them in place-open until it clicks and tighten the attachments for the feet and you're done!
    4) The individually locking Wheels rotate as smooth as glass-but a rail system this ain't! The surface it rolls on needs to be smooth and pretty clean-the rubber tires will absorb small irregularities(depending on the weight of the equipment on them), but they will not make up for cracks in concrete, worn/lapped hardwood floors, or lawn surfaces-toss down a track, tape the seams tightly, and you'll be good. Don't be one of those that don't understand what a dolly is for: moving equipment, not absorbing/insulating surface issues. On smooth and clean surfaces you will be happy with footage shot while moving, If you have an irregular surface, this is NOT a transport tool for smoothing that out.

    This dolly was included with a tripod and a case for the tripod when I bought it-would have been nice if the case would have been designed to hold the tripod and the dolly-it will go in there with the wheels protruding through the zipper-does not look as professional as the the individual pieces, but does get the job done.

    I needed a dolly by the weekend and i decide to get this one. I ordered on Wednesday and by Friday it was on my door.... (love B&H for that)

    i have only used on smooth surfaces and it performance just fine, very smooth and stable when you lock the wheels...

    Probably not the best around but quite adequate. Moves smoothly, easy to lock/unlock wheels. Well worth it.

      The Provista tripod is a great tripod for the price and has a smooth head. The only problem I had was with the dolly Kit. You are not able to lower the tripod all the way down with the Dolly Kit attached to the tripod.

      Seems decent

      Comments about Davis & Sanford W3 Universal Folding Dolly with 3" Wheels:

      I can not rate this in comparison to other similar products because this is the only tripod dolly I have used. I had hoped it would roll a bit more smoothly but it does roll. Its construction seems robust enough for me, but it could be more sturdy. I got a great deal on the tripod with this included so I am not complaining. The plus side is that it folds up for travel.

      If you are looking for an inexpensive way to dolly your camera, this maybe the answer. I wish the locks were a bit more study however till this point I haven't had a problem. This would be better if they had included a carrying case.

                It collapses nicely to a smaller size and the bearings are smooth so it rolls without any squeaks or squeals. It is also adjustable so it will work for different tripods.

                A great addition for my tripod! Works great! Can't wait to test it in real projects and get that nice Dolly/truck shot that I crave for! It is very sturdy and surprisingly easy to make small and make it easy to carry around. Comes assembled and ready to go right out of the box. Well done!

                        This is the best heavy duty tripod dolly I have ever used. Every detail is thoughtfully designed, from the quick lock/release pegs that secure the three legs into position, to the solid locks that secure the caster-style rollers, to the sliders and tripod leg screws that secure the tripod legs into place ... excellent in every way.

                          I shoot with a 4.5 lb. camera, 6.5 with accessories. I am an indie filmmaker and purchased this with a tripod as a package. It's good for tile floors and smooth-finished concrete (such as in most garages).
                          With sandbagging, it might be good for sidewalks or driveways, but I haven't tried that yet, and wouldn't want to put too much weight on the center piece. I haven't been able to use this on location because almost all surfaces are not smooth enough.
                          But it's light and easy to carry. I'm sure it will come in handy, and was worth getting it in a package with my new tripod.

                            All my equipment is on wheels. A little bit of surgery now and then prevents me from heavy lifting.
                            I have three of these for my big binocular set ups.
                            I can move everything with a small push and sit in a lounge chair or observing chair and the whole set up moves. The locks on the wheels will hold it in place if need be. There is also a locking mechanism to hold most photo tripods in place
                            Unlike a different type that doesn't fold, these can unlock and be folded in down in seconds and there is a built in carry handle.

                              I use the dolly in the studio for shooting DSLR video and stills. It's very stable and smooth. The wheel locks are positive and easy to use. It unfolds and folds very easily. Given the price, I was very surprised at how good the quality was. The only negative is that it doesn't come with a carrying case. That would make it a little easier to pack to bring it on location.
