The GF-16 Base Dolly is equipped with independent, double ended steering providing excellent maneuverability in a studio or on location. The foam filled tires each have a dedicated, push-down brake ensuring immediate securing of the base on tailgates or when moving around on set.
Removable levelling jacks are available for use on uneven terrain, providing a secure means to level the base and increasing the footprint of the base. They don't conflict with the track wheel connections, making it possible to lay 100cm / 39" track when the jacks are mounted.
The 4x4 track wheels track wheels provide smooth tracking shots and an unparalleled, ease of movement under heavy payloads.
A major highlight of the GF-16 is the adjustable mounting column. It allows assembly of the arm at a low, comfortable pivot height of 158 cm / 5’2”. When assembled the complete loaded arm can be elevated 40 cm / 18” per hand crank or motor driven with a battery operated screwdriver. This feature not only improves safety and handling as it reduces the need for using ladders etc during assembly and breakdown, it also gives the operator more options to adapt the crane to the location or set.
All GF-16 components are designed to allow a comfortable carry and practical transportation. The complete arm fits on 2 dedicated trollies. With the adjustable column, the pivot section can be lowered to fit in most trucks. Custom designed trollies and weight carriers are available.
Two utensil trays can be attached to the sides of the mounting column providing neat storage of camera and remote head accessories.
Give your crane the chance to do more by adding some GFM accessories.
