Fork for manipulating hay bales

This is in fact a metal structure with mobile hydraulic components which takes the form of a fork attaching to a tractor or other machinery having a front shovel. The fork allows to pick up the ground and contain many bales during handling thanks to a movable piece he calls the "grab". When the time comes to redeposit the hay bales, the operator has to release the grapple and activate a hydraulic lever that will move a double wall that grows on hay bales away from the tractor. Note that Jacques Messier's invention could also be adapted to be use on construction sites in order to move the merchandise that is not on a pallet.
