Sets a new standard

The Classic Plus camera dolly is the successor of the worldwide loved Classic Dolly. This sets a new standard for all camera dollies.

The dolly is based on a rugged, almost maintenance free  and sturdy design. The central column configuration of the Classic Plus Dolly provides its user with easy operation and unconstrained versatility  already in its' basic configuration.

Ergonomic Design

All control elements are colored to be easily recognized and easy to handle. The bolts can be fixed in "open“ position and can be adapted to the tracks perfectly – especially in curves.

The ergonomic design facilitates intuitive working. Switch-over is completely done without tools. So the Classic Plus can be operated in narrow gauge (36 cm) or in wide gauge (62 cm) by using the locking pin.

DESIGNED FOR GRIPS

Standard or waterproof Wireless Handset

Every person is different. Everyone has different needs and expectations. To offer something for all Grips, each dolly can be configured individually – starting with the handsets. The Standard Handset (177648) is included.

As an option there is a waterproof Wireless Handset (302788) available. It can be used wireless and via cable. Charging is done via cable usage or with standard charging cable on a wall socket. It has lots of amazing features:

CRAB & STEER MECHANISM

Patented and loved worldwide

CRAB

4 wheel steering

STEER

2 wheel steering

Crab is included as a standard. The "Steer" mode can be ordered as an option.
The biggest points of difference of our patented Crab & Steer mechanism are perfect, mathematically calculated elliptical steering sprockets. With that the wheels are in a steering geometry (see picture below).

100% Curve

This steering geometry ensures perfect and smooth circular curves without drift, noise, high rolling resistance or even blocking wheels.

 Other dollys are not able to move the dollys in tight curves,
because the wheels’ position is parallel and so it blocks!

Changing Steering mode is easily done by
shifting the blue "Crab + Steer" lever.

DIFFERENT STEERING OPTIONS

Designed by our engineers - Perfected by grip

Small Steering Rod

129832

Steering Rod (Included)

143552

All around the Dolly

As a standard the Steering Rod (143552) is included. To provide maximum flexibility, it can be inserted in all 4 wheel arms.

Steer Out Extention

To maneuver the dolly with more distance the Steer Out Extention (177013) is the perfect solution, because it increases legroom.

In addition to that the Steer Out Extention prevents a rotating of the dolly by central pushing.

 

The Steer Out Extention is removable. 
It can be mounted on all 4 sides of the dolly. 
So you are able to remove it, when you don't need it.


The dolly can be furthermore operated easily,

because the handset has its’ place in the steering rod.

Foldable Push Bar

The foldable and telescopic push bar (301342) is perfect for a dolly operation on tracks.

Central pushing and pushing from side without rotating the dolly (operation on ground) is possible. Particularly in track operation it is a big advantage because the Grip can push the dolly beside the track without “stumbling” over the tracks.

The foldable push bar can also be mounted on all 4 sides of the dolly. It is mounted tool free via a bracket (113272).

HIGH LOW TURNSTILE

We are not just producing - We invent

By far the best turnstile: the patented High-Low turnstile.
It has a huge range of functions and is loved by all our customers.

Maximum flexibility

The turnstile can be rotated by 360 degrees and interlocked through a gear tooth system. The height of the seat can be regulated easily, by pressing a button, to ensure maximum comfort for the cameraman.

Disturbing rotation sound is removed due to a brass bushing (sound recording on set).

The mounted bowl or mitchell can be rotated by 360 degrees in 16 different tilt positions (every 22,5°).

A second seat, for example for the camera assistant, is implemented with a few simple steps.

With the High-Low turnstile you can change fast between the highest position (ca. 1,70 m / 5,6” – with tube extention over 2 m / 6,6”) and the ground level position – without removing the camera or the fluid head.

A transport of many accessories is not necessary. The optional accessories, the tube extention with its tube connector, as well as the 80 mm diameter clamp ring can be stored in a parking position on the dolly.

UNIQUE PLATFORMS

Many options, creatively combined. Maximum comfort for the cameraman.



Lightweight and stable

The lightweight, but very stable platform system from Panther has been proven many years on set. The grips and cameramen are loving the versatility of the platforms, because on every side of the dolly you can mount different platforms.

Also combinations are possible. On request every platform can be personalized with various threads and bores.

Compact platform

Dim. L x W: 70 x 18 cm / 2,4" x 7"


Round platform
105743
Dim. L x W: 70 x 30 cm / 2,4" x 1'

Ground platform

113265
Dim. L x W: 62 x 50 cm / 2' x 1,8"

Unique locking

Due to a unique and easy locking system
the platforms are mounted very fast.

One big advantage: the carrying handles of the dolly are free
and are not necessary for mounting platforms.

Ground platform

The Ground Platform (113265) expands the base of the dolly enormous. It’s perfect for use with jib arms because the cameraman can comfortable use the Dolly and simultaneously operate the jib arm. A height adjustment of the ground platform is implemented quickly. That provides maximum flexibility.

Despite its’ lighweight own weight the ground platform has a payload of up to 120 kg / 265 lbs!




versatile combination possible



height adjustable


versatile usage

(bracket, tubes and support are sold separately)


Ring Platform

For even more comfort, a height adjustable ring platform (300434) is available. It was designed to provide the maximum column drive without restrictions.

Ideal for the cameraman to make it easier to turn around the dolly with the High-Low turnstile.


Running Board Platform

To extend your foot area you can use the Running Board Platform (100483). It can be mounted on many positions by using the seat extentions.

Dimensions: 30 x 30 cm / 11,8 x 11,8"



POWER

Durable, Robust, Stable and Simple:
Panther Dolly battery with "Snap-On" mechanism

Powerful. And simple.

Our long-lasting dolly battery (107758) has proven itself many times on set by stability, robust housing and the popular "snap-on mechanism".

An integrated button with indicator allows you to control always the batterys’ charging status.


Snap-On mechanism

The snap-on mechanism has been designed to fix the batteries without any tools.

The battery is “clipped” to the dolly with a quick handle and does not have to be additionally tightened.


WHEELS

Precisely manufactured for optimal smoothness

Odoo CMS - a big picture

With our dolly H-Wheels it is so easy to move the dolly on tracks without lifting.
Special rubbers used for studio and track wheels ensure smooth driving and low running resistance.
All single wheels and even the complete combi wheel can be changed quickly and easily due to dove tail connections.

You can choose between different pneumatic and studio wheels:


H-Pneumatic wheel with brake disc
Payload: 200 kg / 450 lbs
(138802)


H-Studio wheel (soft) with brake disc
Payload: 350 kg / 780 lbs
(138843)


H-Studio wheel (hard) with brake disc
Payload: 600 kg / 1330 lbs
(143200)


Wheel stand

A separately sold wheel stand (175520) with an integrated wheel changing tool (100453) facilitates your work on set and the transport enormously.

So you can quickly switch between pneumatic and studio wheels, and the wheels which are not used at the moment are safely stowed on the wheel stand.

VARIO JIB

Telescopic Jib Arm.

Telescopic on both sides

The Panther Vario Jib S or the Vario Jib allows you
