As others have said it won't work.  It takes x lbs of force to lift an
object to a higher point.  Wether you do it over an inclined track or
lift it straight up, the force required is the same.  Time and
distance is all that changes, force remains the same.

Right.  I should have said "work"...or at least I think that is the
technical term for the result of "force x distance".  Been a long,
long time since my last physics class :)
