Exclusive | Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler Has Two Rotating Bins

  • VIDEO: Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler
  • Produce high quality compost quickly and efficiently
  • Let one bin "cook" while you add fresh materials to the other side
  • Two bins rotate separately; each bin holds approximately 3 cubic feet

Batch composting is the fastest and most efficient way to produce high quality compost, and this dual bin tumbler makes it easy. Fill one side with kitchen scraps and yard waste, then stop adding materials and let it "cook," turning it every few days to speed up the decomposition process. In the meantime, add new scraps to the other side. When the first batch of compost is finished, remove it and repeat the process, letting the other side cook.

Recycled Plastic
  • Assembly required
  • Recycled black polypropylene, steel
  • 28-1/2" W x 25" D x 37-1/4" H overall
  • Each bin holds approx. 3 cubic feet (22 dry gallons)
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

      Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      The Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler was not easy to assemble mainly because of instructions and the extra plastic tubes. Howver it was worth it. Although I am new to composting the things I like about it was: easy to move, pest proof (Squirrel my issue), compact - does not take over yard, tumblers are great for mixing up contents.

      I also painted it just to blend it in with flowers, etc. I did order the Eco-co® Coir Bricks and Super Hot® Compost Starter.

        The Dual-Batch composter is easy to assemble and the double chambers allow composting on one side while building the compost matter on the other. Size is perfect for urban garden sites and composters "on-the-go".

          I was using a homemade composter for the past 2 years and was very unhappy with the results.
          This 2 barrel composter is working well already.
          I may but a second one.

            This is fairly easy to put together. Just make sure you read the instructions when you put the legs together.You will know if you have done it right by setting the bins between the posts.If you can't the legs need to be switched.

            Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

            Took 3 of us to assemble. The assembly instructions were useless. The 6 different pieces of pipe need to be assembled exactly right or it will not be level or you can't get the tumblers in it. The doors don't go on easily and they don't explain how to attach or what the plastic tubes are for. It has a very small capacity and I filled it up quickly just with kitchen scraps. I would say ok for apt dwellers or small home gardening. There are no instructions on how to use it either. It does not tell you when to turn, what to put in etc. for best results.

            When I spin it small particles spray out of the aeration holes, which are clearly too big. Would be better to have more but smaller holes

                We've put off purchasing a batch composter until now. Previous ones we've researched just didn't seem to meet our needs. This unit does. We're looking forward to warmer weather to get it started. Will let you know then how we're doing.

                  I can use this composter instead of lugging garden waste down 3 floors. and eventually I hope to not have to lug bags of dirt up those same flights.

                  Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

                  My previous composter had good capacity, but was a metal drum which rusted out in only 2 years. I anticipate this one will last -- but after having it for only 1 1/2 months, I've already filled both sides. Larger bins would be better. A crank to assist in mixing would also be helpful.
