I have a 72" tall air-compressor that weights 120 pounds with a 20" base. I have a cart that is 36"wx72"l the surface of the cart where the compressor will be mounted is 10" off the ground. The cart wheels are in the corners, it is rated to carry 3600 pounds and weights 114 pounds. If the compressor is placed centered on the cart will it have a tip over problem because of a high center of gravity.
