The Black Bear Dolly is a hybrid doorway dolly and track dolly featuring an aluminum alloy subframe, diamond plate rubber composite/ply top, seat, steering t-bar, and six ground wheels, fully customizable and expandable with the full suite of dolly accessories.
Unique in its capabilities, design and engineering, the Black Bear Dolly features elements transcendent of the traditional doorway dolly design, among them:
The Black Bear Doorway Dolly accepts track wheels for standard round track without having to disconnect the standard wheel linkages. Installing the track wheels takes about a minute and the operator can leave the standard ground wheels on the dolly while the dolly is riding on the track. The reverse is also true: the operator can leave the track wheels on the dolly while operating the dolly off-track, eliminating any set up time whatsoever when moving from one function to the other once the track wheels are installed.
The Black Bear Dolly is capable of standard front wheel turning and 4 wheel steering with the addition of the roundy round module. The module plugs into the rear of the dolly and installs with no tools. The plug and play design allows you to make the change from two wheel to four wheel steer on the fly and greatly expands the creative possibilities in dolly moves available to the filmmaker.
Increased Dampening and Durability
The Black Bear Dolly is covered with a Diamond Plate Rubber Composite which acts as a dampening agent over rough terrain, smoothing camera movement by absorbing the shock not only in the ground wheels but in the dolly surface itself. The Diamond Plate Composite also eliminates durability problems encountered by traditional doorway dollies, which normally have a carpet for a surface. While carpet dirties and wears quickly and is impossible to clean and restore to its original luster after significant use, the Diamond Plate Rubber Composite top on the Black Bear Dolly will never fray, become moldy or tear and can be cleaned with a wet cloth or hose and instantly restored to its original state, defying aging and wear. The banding around the dolly top's perimeter further protect edges and surfaces from wear.
Expanded Axles and Stability
In a matter of seconds, the Black Bear Dolly's wheels can be pulled out along the expanded axles to an increased wheel base, allowing for an increase of stability under heavy, shifting, or edge-centered loads. The dolly can also utilize dualey wheels on both the front and the rear of the dolly, accepting up to eight wheels and allowing for greatly increased stability as well as additional weight when required.
