Default Blichmann Top Tier Question

I did some searching and couldnt find the exact answer I was looking for. I am going to order the top tier stand but I have 2 questions that I just couldn't find the answer to.

1. How tall is the unit with HLT on the top tier ? I will have a 10, maybe 15 gallon boilermaker on top. Can I still brew with it in the garage ? My driveway is not flat so I would have to.

2. Is the lowest tier high enough to gravity feed into the fermenter ? I do not want to mess with pumps so I will be doing it all with gravity.

If it helps at all, I am ordering a burner for the top tier, a shelf for the middle tier to sit my 10 gallon cooler and I already have the burner for the bottom tier, I just need to order the mounting kit for it.

Thanks in advance.

I really wanted a top tier. Instead, I did a seville classics wireless shelf unit, 18" shelves. Cost about $80, works awesome. I use all gravity, including directly into the fermenter. Use a cutting board or cut down a tile to make the shelves nice and flat.

Going to spend my money on more great burners / kettles.
