    We use this dolly for a jib. It rolls like glass and locks in place very easy. Right out of the box we had it set up with the jib on it in minutes.

        Comments about Manfrotto 114MV Cine/Video Dolly:

        This dolly completely exceeded my expectations. It rolls smoothly on multiple services and works extremely well for moving shots that aren't on grassy or rocky surfaces. My Manfrotto tripod attaches in seconds, which is a huge plus.

        Minus off-road shots, this thing is fantastic.

          Comments about Manfrotto 114MV Cine/Video Dolly:

          Before I've decided to purchase this dolly, I went thru' all the comments available on this item from B&H They were all positive.But what I discovered the most interesting is that, owing a (Vinten) tripod, I wanted to compare this dolly with the more expensive model from Vintenl.They seemed to have the same features. Not only that, they both had the same 114 number in their Model No. So, thanks to B&H, I was able to make an excellent choice with confidence. And once delivered to my home (within 4 days only) near Montreal, Canada, the 114MV dolly by Manfrotto was very easy to set up and was up to the qualities described in the ad. Many thanks B&H. you're the best guide available.

            Does a great job transporting my gear on the field ( I do events) , sturdy , well built and excellent brakes ,not too heavy , a real nice piece of equipment. Nevertheless make sure your tripod fit it , is not a one fits all kind of dolly.

              Comments about Manfrotto 114MV Cine/Video Dolly:

              We really like these dolly wheels. They work with our O'Connor 35L, Sacthler, and Cartoni legs. They are smooth, very sturdy and the cable guards around the wheels do a good job pushing bnc out of the way. Considering the mega $$$ that some of the manufactures want for their rolling dollys, this is a great deal on a great unit.

                Comments about Manfrotto 114MV Cine/Video Dolly:

                I shoot wedding videos and a dolly is a must. it's great for getting track shots and from moving quickly from one location to another. This is a much more sturdy stable dolly than the Manfrotto 3 inch I have. My camera crashed to the grounds because it tipped over on the 3 inch wheel dolly. No problems with the 5 inch. Unfortunitely, not all bogan tripod legs fit snuggly in the grips (tend to wobble) so you may need to add a little duck tape to the tripod for a more snug fit. Only drawback but otherwise awesome dolly. the 5 inch wheel are Much smoother over cracks on dance floor than the 3 inch.

                      This dolly is a great addition to my video equipment in terms of mobility, usefulness and ease of use.
                      Just takes a few minutes to set-up. Very solid, fluid
                      movement...built to last. I highly recommend this dolly to shooters that need a mobile shooting platform for small moves and also rolling from one
                      shot to another. Wish I had bought it sooner!

                        As always, I am impressed with the quality of Manfrotto's equipment. I have the MA114 Dollies for my Jib Arm and I am impressed how the large 5" casters and the wide wingspan allows easy movement.

                        With that said, I had to purchase a similar Dollie for my other Manfrotto sticks. I almost purchased one with 3" wheels but glad I kept looking. Then I found this one. COOL!!

                            Heavy duty construction. I use it with my Jib with about 175 pounds and it does the job ! (According to Manfrotto load capacity is 60 pounds)

                            Cheap Plastic pumper will dry soon or later and will be no longer usable but may takes years...

                            Used for dolly Cine runs as I don't have a track. The wheels are smooth and the build is very solid while not being too heavy. This is a great product. Look into this for tripods with double spiked feet.

                              Creative Video Services is a video production company serving corporate clients with single-to-multi-camera coverage.

                              This dolly has been a work horse for us over the years, and, while our original is still in use, we needed an additional one.

                              The only modification we made to the dolly is removing the cable guards since they make crossing cables in make-shift studio environments difficult. Otherwise, the large wheels make repositioning the camera across cables pretty easy.

                              We look forward to years of use to come from our new purchase!
