Since its introduction in 2009, the
GF-PRIMO DOLLY has gained a reputation for being both innovative in its design and extremely reliable under tough conditions. It’s become the dolly of choice for a vast number of Grips and DOPs as well as being a rental house favourite.
The GF-SECONDO DOLLY is equipped with most of the features of the GF-Primo Dolly and enjoys an equally good reputation and following. The main difference being that the GF-Secondo does not come with the central gearbox for changing steering modes and it doesn’t have the telescopic and inclining steering rod. This makes the system somewhat more economical to buy, whilst securing the same high quality.
