When you’re packing your gear to travel out into the field, you should always ask yourself one question: Do I really need to give myself a hernia? Even though the answer is always “no,” it’s important to remind yourself not to make your freight heavier than it needs to be.
I've always had trouble with the term "dolly." It's just far too wimpy of a word for a tool that enables you to move 500 pounds of equipment with ease. I've always gravitated toward the term "hand truck." The manufacturer Multicart went one step further by naming their dolly products "Rock N Rollers." It doesn't matter if you're a photographer, videographer, a lighting tech or an audio nerd; a good cart will improve your quality of life.
