The Dana Dolly Portable Dolly System with universal track ends is a heavy duty camera dolly platform that rides on 16 custom modified soft polyurethane wheels that resist flat spotting and use ABEC-7-rated precision bearings providing you with extremely smooth dolly shots. The wheel trucks swivel, allowing the dolly to ride on available straight or curved track, which you must source separately. The manufacturer recommends using standard speed rail or Schedule 80 aluminum pipe of compatible size. The dolly includes two universal track ends, which accept pipe from 1.5" up to 1.9" O.D., and fit into available standard Junior stand receivers or 5/8" Baby pins.. A center support is included for long track runs or when using heavy cameras.

The dolly platform is machined from aluminum and features a standard Mitchell mount including a 2.75" center hole with a machined key way. The included 75mm and 100mm bowl adapters allow you to mount fluid heads with standard 75mm or 100mm leveling balls. The platform incorporates one 3/8" through hole, one 1/4"-20 threaded hole, and one 3/8"-16 threaded hole on each side of the dolly platform for a total of 6 accessory mounting holes. The Dana dolly is designed and manufactured in the USA.

Custom Machined Track Wheels

The key to the Dana dolly's smooth ride are the 16 custom machined track wheels.
  • The wheels are custom made soft, then turned down to be round within 1/1000 of an inch to eliminate the bounce that normal skateboard wheels suffer from.
  • You can park the dolly with 100 pounds of camera and accessories on the track at 100° F for an hour without the wheels flat spotting.
  • Another benefit from the machining the wheels is reduced squeak during use.
  • The wheels are custom modified 16 at a time on a special machine, providing uniformity.

 

Wheel Trucks

  • The wheel trucks can swivel on the dolly, which allows it to ride on straight and curved track.
  • A felt washer separates the dolly platform from the wheel trucks, helping to reduce noise.
  • The included T-Tool features a 1/2, 9/16, and 3/8" ends.
  • It allows you to tighten the wheel trucks using the 9/16th end to suit your taste.

Mitchell Mount

The Mitchell mount features an elongated key way, allowing you to use non standard adapters.

Track Supports

Track supports fit into available standard Junior stand receivers or 5/8" Baby pin, although Dana Dolly recommends the use of available beefy baby stands at a minimum and to avoid thin walled aluminum stands

what's the difference between speed rail and o.d. pipes?
Asked by: Jacopo
O.D. stands for outside diameter. It is a spec for the kinds of pipes it is compatible with. This works with 1.5 to 1.9" O.D. Pipe.

Can this work without the need for tracks (assuming we are on a smooth surface like an indoor basketball court)?
Asked by: NICHOLAS
We're afraid not, this dolly will require tracks. Instead we recommend the MYT Works Rover Dolly, which can be used without tracks, you will just need to add a 75mm Bowl to connect a head to it. https://bhpho.to/2Mxw5QB https://bhpho.to/31V7pVK

Will the Dana Dolly fit in a Pelican 1510?

Will the Dana Dolly fit in a Pelican 1510?
Asked by: Joseph
The Pelican 1510 Carry-On Case with Foam Set, B&H # PE1510FB, has interior dimensions of 19.8 x 11 x 7.6 inches. The Dana Dolly platform is listed as 14 x 10 inches, it is possible it can fit but there will not be much wiggle room. You may want to consider a larger case, like the Pelican 1560 Case with Foam Set (Black), B&H # PE1560FB, instead. https://bhpho.to/2rFkQrm

question

Does this include Rails with it? if not what is the recommend one?
Asked by: Oudom
Does not include rails, but just go to your regular Home Depot and pick up your standard 1 1/4 metal pipe for a few dollars and that will do the trick.

question

Does it support a heavy duty Sachtler head with a RED on it?
Asked by: Max
It will support all sachtler 75mm, 100mm, 150 mm ball or Mitchell mount heads. It will support the red cam without an issue. You do need some speed rail and a couple of jr stands to support it. I use the Mse slider stands and they work great.
