Exclusive | Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler Has Two Rotating Bins

  • Produce high quality compost quickly and efficiently

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.

from Danvers, MA

Verified Buyer

  • Double tumblers
  • Easy to use

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      My husband who fails as a handyman put this together all by himself, so it was easy to assemble. We loved the two tumblers and the ease as which to add and shortly to disburse. It doesn't take up much space in our garden

      Product Works But Take Heed

      By aliastaken

      from New Jersey

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      This product works well but please make sure you have ample room on your property to seat it FAR from your home. My house has been invaded by flies because I did not keep it a sufficient distance. My property is just too small to accommodate it. I'm really sad that I tried to do something good for the environment and ended up having to haul it to the dump... time and money wasted. :-(

        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.

          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.

          Best Uses

            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
