Powered equipment such as chainsaws, hedge trimmers, and pole saws can be essential for keeping your yard or other outdoor space neat and trimmed back. This type of equipment however, can be dangerous if used incorrectly so it’s important to understand correct and safe usage techniques before you begin.
Many equipment items which are used on commercial job sites and even at private premises are subject to legally enforceable regulations. As an individual it is often difficult to be aware of what these regulations are. Unfortunately for the user and/or owner of the equipment, especially in a commercial environment, ignorance is not considered a defence and fines can apply.

We’ve all seen or heard the advertisements from the Government and various insurance companies in the media warning us that the storm season is upon us and to prepare our homes. While this is definitely important, here is some other useful information for when we get that massive deluge that, despite our best preparations, results in water where we do not want it. Having a little bit of knowledge about pumps can be a great help when your in a position where you have to hire one to help you out. When selecting a pump to move water from one area to another, there are 3 key factors that a hire company or salesperson will/should want to find out before recommending a pump and they are:
As we move towards Christmas things always seem to move just that little bit faster than normal. As timelines draw closer jobs can become rushed, people can become a little more impatient and some things can fall by the wayside. This season, don’t let safety become one of those … especially when working with tools and machinery.
Choosing not to fully understand the operating and safety instructions of a piece of equipment could result in swearing, a band aid, an ambulance ride and in some cases, the loss of life.
This Christmas season, love your family more than than your timeline.
Please read & understand operating & safety instructions.
With winter little more than a cool memory, it’s that time of year again when most homeowners like to get out in the garden and prepare it for the warm and fun-filled summer months ahead. Whether you simply enjoy getting out and working in your garden or have big plans for barbecues and garden parties this summer, we’ve put together our top tips to help you get your outdoor space in the best possible shape.
Before you can start working on your garden, it’s likely that you’ll need to do some work to restore it to its pre-winter state and prepare it for the summer ahead. For this you will need some specific tools, available for hire from Centenary Hire, such as this lawn aerator to help restore your lawn to a healthy state. If you have lost some of your lawn over the winter months, then you might be thinking about laying some new turf down to prepare a relaxing grassy space. You’ll need a turf cutter to remove any old or dead grass before finally finishing off with a lawn roller.
For most homeowners, the lawn is the central part of their garden – whilst you may have flower beds or even a vegetable garden around, it’s your lawn that makes up the bulk of your outdoor space and is generally the part of the backyard used for socialising, relaxing, and other summer activities. Because of this, making sure that you have the right tools for summer lawn care is essential for a beautiful outdoor space. If you have a large lawn area, this zero turn mower, available for hire from Centenary Hire, is the perfect tool since you can ride on it to achieve a professional finish on your lawn in no time at all. For the best look, don’t forget to set your lawn mower to take off less than a third of the existing grass height and use a line trimmer to reach any small edges for a uniform finish.
Finally, plants are essential for adding some colour and interest to your backyard this summer. A rotary hoe will come in handy for preparing soil in flowerbeds and vegetable gardens, making it more workable for planting. Don’t forget that vegetables don’t have to wait until the weather is scorching – many are best planted during the spring, so that by the summertime you can serve up your home-grown veggies to family and friends. An irrigation trencher will help ensure that your vegetable garden gets enough water, even on the driest of days.

Spring is upon us again, the sun is warm and water out the tap is not so cold any more. Maybe it’s time to tick off a few of the tasks that often need doing after Winter like leaning your outdoor entertaining area ready for BBQs as well as the concrete/stone paths around the home. Give your driveway and even the house walls and roof a fresh look with some serious cleaning. If any of these jobs are on your list, it’s a good idea to consider hiring some commercial grade equipment to get the jobs done more effectively and more efficiently than using a broom and garden hose. Further good news is that if you choose to use a water pressure cleaner it will use less water than a regular garden hose. It’s a win-win situation.
