ABC Products Gets Tripods Rolling

A new transportable tripod roller, specially designed for lightweight cranes of the MiniCrane, Traveller, Speedy and Crane 100 series, has been launched by ABC Products.
This rolling spider allows position changes using cranes with a gross weight of up to 160kg, especially for studio use.
The rollers are attached securely to the legs of the tripod by means of clamps without the need for any tools.
Not only tripods with plastic feet, but also tripods without feet can be used. The "drivable subframe" is also equipped with three levelling supports. This ensures quick levelling and a secure and stable footing when panning.
The dimensions of the roller spider have been chosen so that a crane tripod, even when fully extended with the largest footprint, can still be mounted.
Other height levels are also possible, as the clamps can be attached in four different positions. To facilitate transportation, the 6.8 kg ABC Products roller spider is fully foldable.
The roller tripod is available from the end of July 2009 at a price of EUR 990 plus VAT.
