Breathe New Life Into Your Compost Pile

  • Aerates compost materials for faster decomposition
  • Simple, effective and easy to use
  • Padded handles provide comfort and leverage

You won't find a better-designed compost aerator anywhere. It has not one, but two sets of "wings" that fold back to plunge deep into the pile, then open to create new air passages. A must-have accessory for any composter.

  • 8" wide x 36" long
  • Durable steel construction
  • For left- or right-handed use
  • Minor assembly required
  • Allen wrench included

      We had another compost aerator, but this product is much more sturdy. It is easy to use and does a good job in helping to mix compost.

        Comments about Compost Aerator:

        We bought one of these years ago and it finally rusted away. This aerator is a great improvement over that one. More substantial and powder coated. It works great to aerate our compost. Highly recommend - it will cut down on the work you need to do!

        Comments about Compost Aerator:

        It's a great design and the company has been great about support. Except for the lower handle that has to be attached and is by far the weakest part, it's quite functional.

          Comments about Compost Aerator:

          It does stir things up, but I found it hard to get through the compost material far enough down. Maybe there is a trick to it that I hav't figured out yet.

              Difficult to penetrate the compost in the bin. I was using an old piece of rebar, and it was much easier to use. Would suggest maybe a pointed metal tip - ?

                Comments about Compost Aerator:

                I compost ALL of my garden waste and ALL the leaves in the fall. Throughout the year I use the compost aerator to speed up the decomposition while adding kitchen scraps to it. It works real well in bringing material up from the bottom of the pile while letting air in to the entire pile.

                  Works, but takes some muscle.

                    Again, the flanges don't always open when the tool is pulled up. But it's better than a gray-haired grandmother trying to turn a compost pile with a pitchfork!
