MovieTech 4×4 Dolly
Light doorway Dolly with 2- and 4-wheel steering
The brand new 4×4 Dolly by MovieTech is featured with many innovations which are not common in its class.
The revolutionary thing about new doorway dolly is its steering system. By simply lifting the push bar, the operator can switch from 2- to 4-wheel-steering. A stable stainless steel steering gear ensures a long life and reliable switch control.
The steering rod and the push-bar can be mounted at the front or at the back of the dolly. Thereby the grip never gets in the way of the camera.
Another highlight of the dolly is the enormous flexibility of mounting positions for the turnstile as well as for the seat arms and accessories on the platform. The new quickrelease clamp bolts enable an unprecedented adaptability.
With the 4×4 Dolly it is possible to change over from pneumatic wheels to track wheels within seconds; even without tools.
A variety of MovieTech accessories like tripod-feet, additional platforms, system low-rig, leveling legs, jib-arms and much more make the 4×4 Dolly ready for any use on the professional film set.
