      Comments about : Compost Tumbler:

      This composter is an excellent supplement to a similarly sized composter I already had. Together they handle most of my yard waste and half of my kitchen scraps. Material seems to be processed pretty quickly for continual use.

      Comments about : Compost Tumbler:

      I love both of mine. One of their reviewers suggested using this along with the smaller two chambered YIMBY and it was great advice. Both work fast, but this one is bigger. My Kitchen waste and yard trimmings fill and go through the YIMBY's two chambers fast and I finish them in this one, It's hot, fast and easy to turn. The entire black unit comes in one piece! It's not an erector set. All you have to assemble is the stand and a few screws and nuts. With a !/4" wrench and a screw driver you should have it up in running in an hour- by yourself! I couldn't be happier.

      Comments about : Compost Tumbler:

      I located this at back of my yard. I'm used to using stationery type of bin composter. This is my first time using this kind of model. It was easy to assemble, however I forgot the inside rod, so had to partially disassemble and that's when it bent slightly, not a big deal, but wish it was a stronger metal. It's easy to turn, just note it takes some strength as it gets fuller.

      A bigger great tumbler!

      Best Uses

      • Kitchen And Garden Waste

      Comments about : Compost Tumbler:

      I started with the two section YIMBY. I bought here and it's great but not big enough to handle the load of both our kitchen and garden waste. The price on this one was great too. It arrived sooner than expected and the assembly instructions were excellent. It wasn't an erector set to put together. I assembled it all by myself in less than an hour and the hardware is good old American SAE. It's made in Canada, not China and all you need to put it together is a screw driver, a tape measure and a 1/4" inch wrench. It couldn't be easier and I couldn't be happier.

        Cons

        • Too Close To The Ground

        Best Uses

          Comments about : Compost Tumbler:

          I haven't taken this item out of the box yet, but I have another just like it I've used for many years. It makes great compost quickly. My only complaint is that it is difficult to get the finished compost out. The opening is too close to the ground to dump directly into a wheelbarrow or cart. You need to shovel the compost out one shovelful at a time.

          Comments about : Compost Tumbler:

          I did not pick up on it being a one batch at a time process. What do you do with the additional scraps while you are waiting weeks for one batch to complete? Not what I was looking for.

              Replaced Support Frame After 5 Years

              By Emily

              from League City, TX

              Verified Reviewer

              Pros

              • Easy to use
              • Reduces Kitchen Waste
              • Speeds Compost Rate

              Cons

              • Compost Stays Too Wet
              • Doesn't Drain Well

              Best Uses

                Comments about : Compost Tumbler:

                This is actually an update to my review (Emily from League City, TX) posted on 5/15/2014.

                The metal frame on our first tumbler started to get wobbly in the last 30 days or so. The frame is directly on the ground/grass and after 5 years in coastal Texas it has corroded sufficiently to be unstable. The grass had actually grown over the frame, increasing ground contact and water hold up.

                A friend of ours fabricated a replacement wooden stand as shown in the picture. The plastic tumbler and metal internal rod are still in good condition.
