Sorry if this web-page is not the clearest thing you've ever read before, but it is a difficult  piece of work in process. It's been sitting inside my computer for months and I felt I'd just throw it out there and one of these days I'll find the time to fix it up a bit.
     It's just something I need to post here at this site just as well as the Synchro-link site so take it with a grain of salt.


Hook-lifts are just plane ugly.

Some Hook-lift designs have a bending arm instead of a sliding one. But the problem with them is they are more likely to smash up the top of the box you are trying to pick up. See Fig. 4 below

Both types, you can't see the hook engage because the arm is in the way.
With a Synchro-link, the operator can line up the hook by viewing it through the review mirror.

This is one Stiller in Oregan had came up with.


If you are here trying to figure out how to build my invention: just keep in mind that this invention is the brainchild of a Sentinel.
       I'll be the first to tell you that if you try to steal my invention, nothing good will come from it.
       You might think about asking the people at Lockheed Martin or Ford if they can actually get anyone to build one.
       I'm warning you now beforehand, you don't want to do anything with it.

The Obsolite Hook-Lift

Dennis Sattler

The Synchro-link has had two different operating systems, the first was Synchronized, (this was done by 3 to 1 ratio flow dividers powering front and rear actuators at the same time.) The second as well as current operation system is sequenced combination
fluid/electric operating system.

Sorry if my description isn't written out clear enough,
but heck, just try writing it out without your head exploding.
Check out the video at
Synchro-link.com Video
and you may understand what I mean.

Since the top pivot point of the link is forward of the end of the truck's frame rails, the rear link actuators are actuated first with the use of electric solenoid valves. Micro-switches are used at mid-ark to switch over power to the solenoid valves that operated the front hydraulic actuators, (to avoid scissor clipping the trucks frame rails.)  

Note that the front cylinders actually rotate from the motion from the rear link moving back. The front cylinders actually rotate into a more efficient dump

Once the front cylinder max out, the fluid pressure is relieved by a sequence valve that diverts the hydraulic fluid to the rear actuating cylinders to finish their stroke pushing the link to the down position. 

When loading or during the lowering of the boom/carrier, the operating system uses a separate electrical circuit that operates in reverse order.

Watching the Synchro-link Video may help you understand what I'm trying to convey here.

Top drawing show how the sliding boom will hit a lumber rack
or overhead camper.

Just try tilting your tool box this much and find out what kind of mess you have.

Having dual motors on a Synchro-link opens the doors to the possibility of  having an automatic weight sensing two speed operation


It's just so industrial like and much more stable than a hook-lift system.

You just can't beat a Synchro-link .

A Synchro-link can save weight by not using a payload platform at all.

Yeah, you would be dreaming.

Bottom Line: Synchro-link just looks
better than a

Kind of funny having a web-site to inform people about how screwed up a hook-lift is,
but somebody has to do it. A Synchro-link is just that much better.
