    • Hay-forks used in combination with hay-carriers were created by means of spears or harpoons, or of hinged grappling-irons resembling a clam-shell dredge. The harpoons tend to be single or dual and therefore are supplied with barbs which, once the shaft is thrust in to the hay, may be trashed to gather and lift a large couple of it. The grappling-forks tend to be established and dropped upon the hay, when a pull upon a cord attracts the tines together, gathering and lifting the hay.
