I am part of a shoot this Saturday where we have a fisher 10 but no trained dolly grip so its falling on me to make sure we have everything we need.

It is outdoors and I noticed rain is in the forecast, should I be worried about covering it?

Absolutely have a tarp available.  There's an electrically driven hydraulic pump inside and in general, water isn't good for any part of the dolly's mechanism.

In addition, cover the dolly seat with a plastic bag. This way if does stop raining and the operator takes off his rain pants he doesn't sit in a wet seat. 😁
