The Revo Tri Skate Tabletop Dolly with Scale Marks is a 3-wheel mini dolly that you can use to achieve fluid motion shots in straight lines, curves, wide circles, and 360° spins in very tight circles. You can use the dolly tabletop or on any other flat surface with a rig of up to 40 lbs.

Stainless steel ball bearings inside the wheels enable smooth motion. The wheels tighten, loosen and can be removed at the turn of their respective knobs and can be set into desired matching positions according to scale markings around each wheel. Both the knobs and markings are conveniently located on the top surface instead of the underside of the dolly. Three cutouts in the body provide maneuvering and carrying handles. A camera can be attached directly to the 1/4" screw at the center of the dolly, and a 1/4"-to-3/8" screw adapter is also included for attaching a tripod head. Additional 1/4" threads on each of the three corners allow for mounting articulating arms with lights, mics and other accessories.

The purpose of a 3-wheel dolly in comparison to a 4-wheel dolly is the added capability of achieving 360° pivot shots. This is done by setting two wheels pointing in one direction and the third wheel perpendicular. At the push of your hand, the dolly will spin 360° virtually in one spot.

            This skate dolly is a great ad on for detail shots. As long as the surface is flat you can create some serious magic. Takes a little practice to get a smooth roll but once you have it, BOOM! I would recommend a good ball head mount to make the best of it.

            Comments about Revo Tri Skate Tabletop Dolly with Scale Marks:

            This skater easily holds a 100mm pan head and 16 lbs of camera and lens. The wheels are easy to adjust and they are held together by well designed adjustment tensioners. With the addition of a cheap laser pointer from the local hardware store, it is easy to quickly adjust the arc for holding framing and focus on interviews shot from a smooth surface. The only thing that could make this an even better deal would be including a chart with degree settings for different moves.

              smooth rolling but the black anodised coating is thin. After the first use it has been scratched by the ball head. It is not important, only comestic aspect. It works perfectly.

                + great for indoor and studio use
                + great value for the price
                + it does what is supposed to

                - needs a lot of support for outdoor use, but every tool lacks that to be fair

                _still looking for the right tripod to put on it
                _would have a pulling mechanism /w a motor for constant pull

                        Was needing a quick and fast solution for a client that would enable me to provide something portable yet effective enough for use with 360° spinning capabilities. Its strong, lightweight, and portable makes it easy to use in a wide array of applications. For me it was a perfect way in producing the look i was needing on an extremely low budget.

                          Just got this and very happy with it. Rides smoothly; solid feel to it. I did notice that I got the motion to be much smoother for E.C.U. shots using a strap to push and pull it, rather than trying to dolly with just my hand. So I wish it came with a strap. Also wish it came with (or could find) a long push-handle to move it along the ground as I walked along beside it. Haven't seen one of those on any of these skate dollies though. So far, I'm happy with this purchase!

                                      I purchase this table dolly a few weeks ago. I'm using this dolly on a slider that I'm building. This table dolly is well build and work very well on different surfaces, it's worth the money.
