There are few greater rushes in life than getting behind the wheel of a grunty little machine and being in total control of it. That's what you can expect with our S70 bobcat at Kennards Hire.

Once you actually have the bobcat, you'll want to put it to good use, though, and that requires having some fantastic projects - definitely outdoors - to put your little digger to the test. Below are some projects that we think will not only give you a bit of enjoyment when using the machinery from Kennards Hire, but also add great value to your property at the same time:

1) A brand new garden path

If you have a lot of grassed parts around your property, it might well be time to create a pathway through some strategic routes to the washing line and barbeque area. Doing so will mean you can still make the most of your whole property, and all the creature comforts you have, without having to clean mud off your pants every time.

What could your garden end up looking like?What could your garden end up looking like?

While laying the path can often be a simple task, getting the pavers or tiles into the right places can be tough, especially when using heavy stones. A simple solution would be to load them into the S70 bobcat from Kennards Hire and move them quickly and efficiently into the right area of your garden. It could also save your back. If you're using concrete pavers and need to cut some to size, use a 350-millimetre demolition saw to make the job a breeze.

2) Rock your very own rock pool

A boring, dead garden bed can be transformed into an easy-to-maintain rock pool by merely adding stones, big and small, a pump and reservoir container, a filter and water.

Heavy rocks can be transferred into the required space by loading the digger up so you don't have to juggle hundreds of rocks at the same time or take loads of trips. Why not use the bobcat hire for both of these projects in the same weekend? You can transform your entire backyard in just two days!

Make your rock pool a feature that will catch the eye of your friends.

Once the rocks are in place, choose where you want the water to be pumped through, and then drill holes into the rocks to fit the piping by using a 26-millimetre cordless hammer drill. Feed the pump through, connect to a water supply and the reservoir underneath, and rearrange the rocks as you please to make your new rock pool a tranquil feature of your garden that will really catch the eye of your family and friends.
