The Western Dolly is a larger, heavier duty platform than the Doorway, with a maximum capacity of 1200 Lbs. (544kg). The wider, longer platform provides an even smoother ride with its larger, wider tires and extended wheelbase. This dolly can be equipped with a turret as can the Doorway. The turret assembly allows for the mounting of two seats and a complete camera configuration support by a Mitchell Base. The Western Dolly’s Pop-Off wheels allow quick removal and easy storage. The axle is integrated into the wheel assembly to prevent the axle from becoming separated from the wheel upon removal. The wheel base of both is 52″ with an overall length of 76″. The platform size is 48″ wide by 66″ long. Total weight capacity is 1200 Lbs. (544kg). Tire pressure – 16-22 Lbs.

Whether used as an equipment transportation vehicle or as a camera platform, the Western Dolly provides reliable, heavy-duty, steady support at a reasonable price. While the configuration of the Western Dolly axle has often been copied by competitors, field observation has proven that none have been successful in matching the strength of the Matthews axle. Because it is impossible to anticipate the manner in which the dolly will be loaded or the slope of the terrain on which it will be used, Matthews has learned that the capacity of each axle must match the total capacity of the dolly. The strongest Dolly of its type in the business.
