Description

  • Aerates compost materials for faster decomposition
  • Simple, effective and easy to use

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.

Specifications

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

    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.

        Comments about Compost Aerator:

        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!

                  This is my second one. My first one wore out after several years. Another replacement did not work as well.
