A little digger was delivered to our house on a great big black truck. The digger started picking up the huge rocks from our yard and stacking them neatly for us out the way:
The speedy bobcat zipped back and forth, taking up the turf.
The bobcat removed the top layer of soil which was taken to the tipper truck out the front.
