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
  • Two bins rotate separately; each bin holds approximately 3 cubic feet

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.

Recycled Plastic
  • Assembly required
  • Recycled black polypropylene, steel
  • 28-1/2" W x 25" D x 37-1/4" H overall
  • Each bin holds approx. 3 cubic feet (22 dry gallons)
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

When I assembled it the composter was crooked. I had read and re-read instructions. Called Gardeners Supply Co. who were great. He explainedone side of leg assembly is longer than the other and I'm going to have to reassemble it. He also said the 2 PVC tubes I got in the tumblers are not for this product so pitch them. I look forward to a successful composting experience and love this company.

    Purchased composter about a month ago. Currently adding organic kitchen/garden scraps. Looking forward to using compost in potted plants and garden this spring. Only gave 4 stars because not sure how long it will take to compost. Delivery was fast, item seems sturdy and will handle enough for my garden.

      Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      The unit arrived on time and in generally good condition. There were no problems assembling. The instructions were fair, the frame pictures showed the proper assembly. The one thing I found that the instructions omitted is the center PVC tube for each side had tyo be snapped into place to reinforce the sides and also work as a bearing. One door was a little hard to slide so I switched doors, same problem. I noticed there was some debree from where the 2 sidew were melted together and trimmed it off, this cured the door problem. The unit seems very sturdy and we are looking forward in learning how to compost. Now just hope to keep the critters out.

          Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

          Would have given it 5 stars had it not been so difficult to assemble the legs. We finally stopped looking at the directions and used trial and error to finish the assembly. This is a great product for smaller gardens. It doesn't take up,too much space and it is off the ground so no issues with rodents. Would suggest users follow the enclosed composting directions closely and using suggested additives to get the best outcome. I didn't at first which resulted in it taking longer to produce compost and the resulting compost wasn't as fine as I liked.

            Not too difficult to assembly. The openings are good enough size to add scraps from our kitchen container. We've only had it for a month, and still filling up the first side. It turns easily, which is great.

            Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

            Recently moved from Wisconsin to Arizona and I left my two large composters because my Arizona yard was 1/4 the size of my previously one, so I was excited when I saw this item.
            Came quickly and was easy to assemble. One tub was perfect but the other was made poorly. The two pieces of molded plastic were uneven so the door would not slide. Contacted GS and they quickly replaced the bad tub with a new one and told me to save the door. Although the new tub is better constructed the door still did not slide easily. My husband spent several hours filing the edges of the tub to allow the drawer to slide with ease. It now works adequately

              I've just put this together, it was easy. The instructions say that you must have 2 people for assembly, not so. I did it myself without difficulty. Can't comment on how well it works, I just got it

              Very Nice unit. Its winter where I'm at, but started using right away and its working even in very cold temps. Like the two drums for different batches. Doesn't take very much space in the yard, and much faster than my old pile system I had to turn with a pitch fork. Am considering buying another one.
