      I am looking for a way to connect a hydraulic cylinder to a tail lift. I know this is usually done with a cylinder operating in tension between the static post and the moving post to pull the platform up. But I have space in the box behind, and a single-acting cylinder working in compression would be more efficient, and smaller. Is there a clever 'hinges & levers' solution?
