Additional Information

Exclusive | Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler Has Two Rotating Bins

  • Produce high quality compost quickly and efficiently
  • Let one bin "cook" while you add fresh materials to the other side

Watch: Dual Batch Compost Tumbler  

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.

  • 28-1/2" W x 25" D x 37-1/4" H overall

    Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

    Some of the parts were not even listed. ie: the cover to the axle nor the "break off" piece that is needed
    for a separator for the barrels. Putting the frame together, per instructions, wasn't that easy either.
    However, all in all a really good product and much needed if one wants to use table scraps etc. to mix with leaves.

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      I previously had a very large dual barrel composter that worked great but took up a lot of space in my backyard. We used that one for over 10 years until it rusted and broke. This one handles the amount of compostable material that I get from my average size garden and lawn, without taking up much space or looking monstrous. I like having the two chambers so I can leave one to cook while adding to the other. My husband is very good mechanically and easily assembled this; on my own, I would have taken much longer.

        Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

        The composter was easy to set up and looked like it would be convenient to use. Not so! The " sliding" doors do not slide; in fact, it takes a great deal of strength to even budge them. I have to brace the composter with one hand while I wrench the door with the other, gradually working it open or closed. As a result I'm disinclined to add anything to it, so who knows how well it will work? I'm very disappointed.

        Missing parts

        We just put this composter together yesterday and so far so go. However when I went to put it together with my children it was missing a nut. It seems that for shipping, all the bolts and nuts were put in a little zip lock bag and placed in one of the tumblers. However it appears the bag that was placed in ours didn't get closed, and when to took all the parts out we could her them moving around inside the tumbler and found some lose in the box. Thankfully I was able to go to ace and get the part I needed. However it changed my plans for the day and it seems silly to go to Ace a 40min round trip for one nut that was $0.12. I will update how the composting is going in a few weeks.

          Had to order wheels which were already paid for...a few days later free shipping offered on purchases...when I requested reimbursement for shipping (plus add'l shipping charge) was told too late even tho I requested it at time of purchase... Did agree to $12.99 reimbursement, but feel all shipping should have been refunded

            I used to have access to lots of good material for composting but now that I don't the dual smaller batch containers work very well.

              Keeps raccoons and other pests out of the compost. Allows me to start creating a second batch while applying the first one.

                  The product seems great. The barrels are sturdy. HOwever, I did not receive directions or hardware to assemble. I have requested the missing parts and directions, but no one has responded. So far, not good customer service. I will think twice about ordering from this company again.
