Why We Love the Apollo

Why We Love the Apollo

The Apollo is our heavy-duty solution for mobile workstations. Out of all our cart workstation models, the INOVATIV Apollo has the highest payload capacity and largest working surface, yet it’s still portable and has plenty of stopping power.
We say the Apollo is the on-set equivalent of a tank. Here’s why you might want to consider the Apollo as your camera cart, production cart, grip cart, mobile workstation, or utility cart.

What’s So Special About INOVATIV’s Apollo?

Sturdy While Carrying Heavy Equipment

“Have owned this cart for over a year now it’s been used non-stop carrying heavy equipment such as our batteries and camera gear every day. It has not missed a beat and it still feels stiff and rigid as the day we bought it.” 
–Aidan Kelly

The Apollo cart workstation has a payload capacity of 1200 lbs. With an incredibly sturdy internal mainframe, it’s the strongest mobile workstation on the market. This model also includes 4 accessory corner mounts so that you can install equipment directly to the Apollo, further customizing the cart to your personal preferences.
“This Apollo is a dream. I’ve been an INOVATIV owner for years and this is one of the most solid well built units I’ve had the pleasure to work from... Right and stable even when loaded with heavy gear and cases and cameras staged on the ends.”
–Dennis Scully

Compared to INOVATIV’s other cart workstations, the Apollo’s shelves are 56% thicker to provide greater support for heavy items. Best of all, our shelving system easily assembles without tools.
In addition to extra-study shelves, the Apollo has extra-sturdy vertical posts. They are 14% thicker than the posts on our other cart workstations and mounted to the widest points on the cart. The strong posts, shelves, and mainframe all combine to create the most stable and sturdy cart workstation to date.

Comfortable for Working on a Laptop or Camera Operating

“I also love the fold down top shelf just makes working on a laptop or camera operating such a comfortable experience it’s one of my favourite features that doesn’t exists on many carts.”
–Aidan Kelly

The Apollo has a top shelf that flips down for ergonomic keyboard access. We want our users to be comfortable as they do their work, so we took laptops and keyboard work into account when designing this cart workstation.
You can also get more equipment out of the way of your keyboard and computer with our expanded storage. Apollo owners can enjoy extra space in optional combo locking top and bottom drawers.

The Apollo has Smooth Wheels with a Premium Braking System

“Nothing rolls better than an INOVATIV cart. The Smoothest rolling carts in the business. Confidence inspiring and very functional features that add to professionalism on set or location!”
–Dennis Scully

Wheels are the unsung heroes of your workstation cart. You may not think about them at all when they’re working well, but you will definitely notice if a cart has squeaky or broken wheels, or if the wheels don’t have a braking system.
The Apollo has the same much-loved removable wheels we have on the EVO X. Our 10-inch pneumatic wheels have 100% sealed bearings and an aluminum design for a smooth, quiet ride.
“The Apollo 52 is so smooth and strong! It has absolutely changed how we are able to move in and out of different locations. With the huge wheels, outdoor locations are no longer a struggle when it comes to maneuvering around.”
–Daniel, Verified Buyer on B&H

Our wheels also come with a premium foot braking system to help you keep control of the cart workstation. You can lock your wheels in place so your workstation doesn’t roll away from you.

Other Apollo Features Worth Mentioning


Compatibility With Accessories

If you’re looking for ways to optimize your workstation for your personal workflow, it’s easy to customize your Apollo with accessories. You can add to your equipment setup with monitor arms, umbrella clamps for shading monitors, cable hooks, and so much more.

The Apollo is Easy to Pack

The posts make it easier to latch your Apollo down to the walls of a production truck, and the keyboard tray stows out of the way so you can easily load and unload equipment. Our latch system connects the two shelves on the Apollo when packed and also stows out of the way when the cart is built.
While the Apollo is designed primarily for heavy-duty durability, it is also a portable and packing-friendly cart workstation. This model is less than 7.5” thick in its packed configuration. However, many Apollo users opt to roll their workstations into a van and strap it in instead of folding it down because they want to keep all their accessories attached.
