The Hustler IV Camera Dolly





The Hustler IV is a solid chassis (fixed width) Dolly able to carry and lift larger payloads on it's hydraulic arm, including many types of Jib Arms, such as the Stinger. There is plenty of room for a camera operator and focus puller for ride on filming. The Hustler can perform x6 full height lifts on a full charge (under full weight). The Dolly can be re-charged in 60 seconds using the electric pump (a manual pump is also available but takes longer to achieve full charge, around two minutes). The new wheel design improves the Hustlers ride on track.

Hustler IV side boards that are height adjustable without removing the boards. The boards have mounting sockets and can be added on the front and sides to easily carry lights or seats.

The Hustler is strong enough to carry the 20' and 32' Hydrascope Telescopic cranes and the Lenny Mini.

Chapman's top of the range studio Dolly (although it is used on location as well), designed for stability where heavier loads/camera packages need a rock steady platform. The Hustler is packed with features that make it an incredibly versatile main unit Dolly for any size production. The Hustler has a built in heater system for the hydraulic oil, to ensure perfectly smooth operation of all it's key components in very cold temperatures.
