Folds to a Compact Size
The PD-1 folds to a very small 34″L x 21″W x 16″H, for easy lifting and transportation, fitting into many compact cars and hatchbacks.
Each wheel leg can be adjusted to suit your needs
The wheel legs can be adjusted to 4 different positions, plus the closed position as shown above, for maximum stability or minimum size and in between, just by pulling down a release pin underneath the leg, and moving the leg into position.
Wheels lock or swivel freely
Each wheel pair can easily be set to swivel freely or be locked to any of 12 positions, at 30 degree intervals. This allows for a variety of manuevers, either straight, angled or curved, without the use of track.
4-Way Leveling Head
The Leveling Head is used to make the mounting plate level when the dolly is on an incline, making sure camera panning and tilting are normal.
Locking Utility Holes
Use the two utility holes on each side of the dolly, to mount Seats, Utility Arms, and other attachments.
Smooth Up and Down Boom Movement
By using the crank at the rear of the dolly, you can adjust the boom for the weight of the camera. This enables the boom to move up and down like a jib arm without making any further adjustments.
Movable Boom Brake for Easy “One Man” Operation
The boom brake adds slight friction to the boom arm to prevent unwanted movement. It can be attached to any round tube from 1/2″ to 1-1/4″ diameter. Squeeze the lever to release the brake, then move the boom arm, or lock it in the released position for free movement.
The Boom Locks in the Down Position for transportation and camera changes
With the boom arm in the full down position, engage the lock lever to remove the camera for transportation, enabling boom arm to remain adjusted for the weight of the camera.
Removable Push Bar
The Push Bar is easily removed for transportation by using the 2 knobs at the rear of the dolly frame and the one knob in the center of the push bar.
With the track wheel option, track wheels are permanently attached between the regular wheels for smooth rolling on straight and curved track. The PD-1 can then be moved from rolling on a smooth floor, to rolling on track, without making wheel changes.
The optional side platforms give the camera operator extra room for feet and battery packs, and can be attached to either side of the dolly frame.
