The SYL-960 Floor/Track Hybrid Tripod Dollyfrom Glide Gear features interchangeable wheels for use on dolly track or straight on the floor. It is machined from aircraft grade 6061 anodized aluminum alloy to tight tolerances for precision and strength. So, although this system is strong enough to be used with rigs up to 35 lb, it is lightweight and folds up to be carried in the carry bag. Once set up, you place your tripod straight on the dolly, and you can achieve smooth tracking shots whether using tracks or on the floor. To accommodate larger tripods, the legs will extend an extra 5 inches.

At the heart of the SYL-960 track dolly system is the sliding swivel track wheel system. These in-line track wheels are not only full 360° swivel but are also able to freely slide within the wheel housing in any direction by an extra inch. This means that the track can be imperfectly aligned in places and still not affect the smooth operation of the Glide Gear SYL-960 track dolly.

In addition to all of these features, the SYL-901 is a hybrid that can easily be converted into a rolling camera dolly with the included regular swivel wheel casters. Each caster wheel has 360° swivel and locking mechanism, so your camera won't roll away on its own when not in use.

    SYL-960 Floor/Track Hybrid Tripod Dolly is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works very well Using this with 1 1/4 PVC 10 foot piping with the track wheels. Super smooth and stable. As quiet as anything with rubber wheels can be. Fit my tripod very securely. Folds easily. CONS: the bag is small and doesnt fit with the wheels on. The (non-track) wheels are too small even just to transport a tripod. I replaced them with standard 4 wheels from a HW store (still only useful for transport not filming). THere are no assembly instructions - but assembly is easy if you figure out you must use the hidden allen wrench on the hidden bolts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I am using this dolly with the track wheels on 1 inch conduit piping. I'm actually putting a 6 foot crane on top of my tripod and it still runs perfectly smooth! The only complaint I have is similar to others. The supplied bag is really nice but it doesn't fit the dolly if the track wheels are attached. There is no way I'm taking off the track wheels every time I use it just so it fits. So it mainly just gets folded up and carried around as is. But that being said its pretty sturdy, i'm not worried about it being damaged when moving it around. I'm using it with: Ravelli AVT Professional 67 The tripod fits great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast and Professional Needed a on the fly rail system for a movie I was shooting. Product came fast and was delivered in a much larger box with plenty of cushion to protect against any abuse in shipping. Wheels were individually wrapped and protected. The assembly was pretty straight forward but not done with the greatest of ease. Over all the product performed well and handeled my two 36' rubber tracks with ease. I would definetly recomend this product to anyone but would probably be scoffed at by the eliets. Again, would have gave 5 but the wheels could have had a snap system vs their unscrew and screw back in system.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a bad dolly For a relatively inexpensive dolly this dolly performs as expected. I like that it can fold down and it is light weight for travel. I used it on pvc track and it ran very smooth at slow to moderate speeds. The only down side to this dolly that I encountered is that it has some flex since its made from mostly plastic. Also when it is collapsed down with the track wheels on it will not fit in its case. Only when the caster wheels are on it will fit which is kind of a bummer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dolly needs a better bag. I am a high school Digital Film Production teacher. I purchased two of these to go along with the flexible tracks that I purchased. The action is smooth and the dolly and wheels are great quality. My only complaint and it is a minor one is that I wish it came with a bag large enough to hold the dolly when the track wheels were on it. The bag only works when the casters are attached. I really would like to give this product a 4.5 but that is not an option. If you are looking for a great track dolly, look nor further.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use The SYL-960 came with two sets of wheels. One set is for using on non-tile floors with smooth surfaces, obviating the need for tracks. The other roller-skate type wheels would ride on the tracks. I used the roller-skate wheels on the Glide Gear Straight Aluminum 12-foot track. Although a little tight to get on the tracks, once settled in, the wheels flowed smoothly across the set. The only downside is that once skate wheels are attached, they do not sit inside the provided bag. Otherwise a fine product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price I didn't realize upon purchasing that this dolly can't really accommodate a pro tripod. The area to mount and lock the tripod feet is too narrow. That being said, I went out and bought a very cheap ($) tripod with a smaller footprint and it locks in nicely. The movement with the in-line track wheels on standard rails is beautifully smooth. Not so much on rubber track despite having a modest amount of flexibility in the way the wheels are designed but for the money, I would highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product After extensive research for an effective, compact and light tripod dolly I am extremely pleased with my decision to purchase this SYL-960. It is sturdy, versatile and reliable. Great on three wheels with the tripod and reliable on track as well. Also light enough to pack and travel for documentary shoots. Easy to disassemble from track tires to tripod tires. So long as you maintain the tires by cleaning after use and lubricating, you will be fine. My only critique is that the handbag should have been a bit larger and sturdy. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this product.
