      Comments about Compost Aerator:

      I don't get it about the raves for this item. I bought it and tried it out and should have returned it then and there. It is very difficult to insert into a pile of leaves, and even harder to extract. A pitchfork (small or large)is MUCH more efficient. It just feels flimsy and much too small to handle heavy leaves. If you do get it well down in the pile, it still only pulls up a small diameter of stuff.

          Comments about Compost Aerator:

          I have to say at first I thought it was a little pricey. I've had one before. This item is worth every penny. It is well built, comes fully assembled, and has double padded handles, and double flip out aerators.
          Very happy with it.

          Comments about Compost Aerator:

          I've never had one of these, so my compost takes forever to break down. This is easy to use. More challenging with sticks in there, but overall very easy to use. Sturdy.

              Comments about Compost Aerator:

              Ten years ago we purchased a "one wing" compost aerator. It was well-built and worked. When we recently moved, we gave it to the new owners.

              Then we started composting at our new home and recalled we no longer had an aerator.
              This new (at least to us) "double-wing" does what one would hope---more work--- it does not disappoint. The comfortable handle makes churning kitchen waste and grass clippings much easier.

              Comments about Compost Aerator:

              With some effort, this tool does mix composting materials. It is important to cut stalks into small pieces to make this device effective

                  Comments about Compost Aerator:

                  Takes a lot less effort than using the garden fork which I have used in the past. I have 6 bins and 3 free-standing piles of compost and this works great. I do wonder how long the wings will stand up over time.

                    We are currently using this aerator for a three bin recycling system at a conference and retreat center. It works extremely well and allows us to efficiently compost kitchen scraps and to produce compost for our organic vegetable garden.It is an integral part of our "farm to table" program and assists in meeting our goal of providing healthy food choices for people on retreat...feeds the body and the soul:-)
