# They manage it because the spear is mounted on an agricultural tractor

And what makes you imagine that a relatively professional thief would NOT
get the right tools to make the job easier and quicker ?
# So he's going out to spend $60,000 on a tractor to steal a $60 bale of
# Or even $20,000 used?
# Right. You must have pretty dozy crooks over there.
More likely they'll steal the machines, just like the steal the hay
They're thieves after all, you stupid limey
They make round bale lifts to put on the back of a pickup or other truck
that have the central bale spear and a couple side spears for
anti-rotation. A hydraulic cylinder tilts the assembly up and down. Tilt
down, back truck into the round bale, tilt up and drive off. Takes
seconds. Reverse to deposit the bale where you want it. They sell this
equipment at pretty much every farm supply store.
# The bale lifts go on the front or back of an agricultural tractor
# using the hydraulics to lift.
# So it would need to be another farmer.
# That narrows down the suspects then a bit.
Many car thieves while well equipped with locksmith tools are not
locksmiths by any stretch of the imagination
A professional thief would get the right tools for the job

Do you think he can sue his schools and other branches of the educational
system for non-performance ?
If he can, he should
I'm even willing to provide testimony if required.
How do you shove a steel bar through the centre of a hay bale? It is
packed almost as hard as if it were a block of timber.
And even if you succeeded, how would you get it out?
I see you know as little as these journalists.
Apply sufficient force (does not take much) for both operations. (not a
journalists but one who, a long time back, worked for chump change shoveling
horse sh|t and wrestling hay in and out of trucks/flat bed trailers.)
