You only need to raise it about 4 feet I don't think you should have any trouble with that it is more stable on the floor but if your careful you should be all right like they said heavy angle secured will hold it make sure you have some one holding the valve in the up position as you raise it up

I'm not sure but I think what might be happenning when you pull the left side handle is that it is applying the brake and since the brake and clutch are stuck together it is actually disengaging the clutch. You can see the clutch pedal moving when you pull it back

Are you pushing the lever forward or pulling it back towards the seat if your pushing it foward something is really messed up like Lavoy said but if your pulling it back then look down in the housing and see if you can ajust the throw out bearing.

That thing weighs about 10,000 to 11,000 pds and if your going up steel ramps you want to be level and not to steep even then it can be as exciting as ride at the amusement park. Would bolted on top of the ramps helps as long as it's not wet. I was in a bad spot once where the ground was unlevel and...
