I actually use somthing like this to move very large and heavy equipment at work.
We have an air system that will move 20,000 on four 1ft square pads.
A crack in the concrete floor---not a good thing---instant loss of air pressure.
It does blow a lot of debris around---and once you get the equipment moving---not easy to stop 13,000lb with a 200lb human.
Sure beats using little rollers and pinch bars to move and place this stuff. We just lift the equipment (with a forklift or railroad jack) set it on the pads, turn on the air--push it with a finger.
