Dana Dolly




The Dana Dolly is an updated version of a design used in the film industry for decades.  After making similar dollies for years for friends, Mike Hall decided to simplify the design, and modify the components and composition to make the entire system easier to use and more affordable.

The dolly is the product of hundreds of shoots and modifications since the early 1980s, when the cameras were much heavier.  We tried a number of different wheels and bearings, and composites, steel, and aluminum before coming up with the combination that we believe is all three: Good, Fast, and Cheap.

The Dana Dolly V2.0 is now made of 6061 Aluminum finished Black to cut down on reflectivity. The bottom of the plate is milled out to cut down on overall weight, while not compromising strength. The triangle trucks are a custom extruded aluminum profile that is patent pending, finished black. The wheels are custom made soft, then turned down to be round within 1/1000 of an inch (thinner than a human hair) to eliminate the “bounce” that normal skateboard wheels give.
