That brings back a very bad memory of me loading one of those jungle road graders in-country which had an extra "lotta lbs" of steel welded to the front but not listed on the manifest. Ramp up engaged but not moving. Look out side door at weight and balance device (crew entrance door) and see nose gear off the ground. Luckily I reversed the ramp, got it back down and didn't blow the seals. Got the road grader off and reversed it in. Pilot mentioned it was kind of nose heavy when we took off. It wasn't that high though.
