    Nice find - I haven't seen one since 1987.  I believe the cabinets had 
wheels, with stabilizing pads, but it's been a while.  According to the 
configuration guide:

    ...the CPU bay alone weighs 790 lbs and the I/O bay (option 200) brings 
it up to 1010 lbs.  The transformers in those beasts are HEAVY.

    Bitsavers has LOTS of info on the Series III.
