A lot.

But it depends on how much stuff has been removed first.

Only the flywheel & clutch removed. More than 1250 lbs(568 kgs) ?? - I would doubt it, but I thought I would just check first.

And I would make certain the rollers have sheet steel to run on, or they WILL f**up, I can show you pics of what happens as my tame MOT man has one as backup for when his main lifts are in use. :?:

If I was designing this setup I would be looking at changing the trailing wheels to allow for uneven surfaces and the weight they have to carry. :lol: :w

Steve, yep plenty of headroom once I've removed the lifting beam that I've never actually used and not likely to.
Mark, good point on the rollers will acquire some sheet steel and create a runway.
