A center support is included for long track runs or when using heavy cameras.

I want to mount it to two regular Matthews C-stands. Do I need an adapter?
Asked by: Colin
The Dana Dolly Portable Dolly System with Universal Track Ends (B&H# DADDUK1) comes with two Universal Track Ends and a Center Support which may be installed on 5/8" male spigots (A.K.A. baby pins) or into 1 1/8" receivers (A.K.A. junior receivers), both being common connectors on the tops of many light stands. For example, the Matthews Century C Stand with Mini Base, Black - 5.25' (1.6m) (B&H# MALSC20MBB) or Matthews Mini Slider Stand (38") (B&H# MALSMS) may be used for that purpose. Please keep the weight limits of any stand used in mind, and use a sandbag with the stand whenever appropriate.

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

Is it worth paying extra for the universal track ends instead of the original ?
Asked by: Pedro
As a long time movie professional, I can tell you Murphy's law applies to what happens on set. If you are in a controlled set up and you know for a fact what size of speed rail you always will be using, do save your money and get the original style.However, if you are working freelance, and someone else will be supplying the speed rail, save your self the grief of failure on set because the ends you have don't fit and you can't shoot. Get the universal. They are worth the piece of mind in that situation.
