We sell and service many institutional pianos and for their needs, the grand piano stage dolly by Jansen is our first choice. A stage dolly will allow you to regularly move your piano freely, safely, and with less wear and tear. Still, a stage dolly in an investment that you will make one time and then, like most people, you will forget about it. For this reason, we recommend this piano dolly for its high-quality and low-maintenance.
More and more concert grands are now using large, locking stage casters (like the one pictured below). These casters are usually +3" in diameter and are meant to eliminate the need for a large stage dolly. However, in some cases, the stage dolly is still preferred. If this is your case, you will need J6544R. Model J6544R has arms that compensate for the height difference made by these extra-large casters (like the ones pictured).
The stage truck reduces stress on the legs and joints for frequently moved concert grand pianos.
The rubber casters used on the stage truck are less likely to mark floors.
These piano dollies are appropriate for nearly all concert grand pianos approximately 9' in length. The radial arms extend to get the right fit.
If you are unsure of your order, please contact us.
For most uses, we recommend upgrading to the locking casters on each wheel. This secures the piano even during an energetic performance.
