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

    I appreciate the ease of this product. No more turning compost with a pitchfork. I haven't had it for very long, but so far I think it's great.

    Easy assembly and easy to turn the tumbler. I also like the dual-batch system. Since I just started my first batch of compost, I am unable to comment on the speed of the process. However, I'm looking forward to adding the finished product to my garden!

      Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      The instructions are incomplete as they don't tell you to use the plastic tubes as axels for the two bins. I immediately knew they had to be axels, but in reading the reviews it looks like a few people threw them away. Just snap them into place inside the bins.

        Instructions are worthless

        Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

        Don't know how well this thing works but I thought I'd provide some assembly instructions given that neither the manufacturer or Gardeners' Supply give you anything worthwhile.

        It didn't take me that long to put together but I like puzzles. Others probably not so much.

        Here's what you need to know. There are four L-shaped base pieces. Two are labeled "dd" and two are labeled "cc". Each base matches a "dd" with a "cc". Put the female end of the "dd" piece on the ground and connect with the male end of the "cc" piece. When you have the two dd/cc U-shaped bases assembled, lay them out so the front base has the dd piece on the left and the back base has the dd piece on the right (or the reverse). Stand them up and connect the V-shaped top pieces on. The rest is self explanatory.

          Using this for our kitchen, garden and yard compostables - and I'm a first-timer.
          I like the dual capacity, it is easy to turn, it fits well in our small yard, adding to it is easy.
          My husband found the instructions to be poorly written.

              Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

              I would like to start to use this product but I am still waiting for customer service to answer my question about the two black plastic pipes that were in the bins. I still want to know if I am supposed to leave them in the bins. I e-mailed over two weeks ago and still waiting for an answer! Also, the last step says two people are needed to complete. I am a 68 years old woman and put the entire composter together myself. I didn't need any help for step #6.

                I have only had the composter for amonth so it will be interesting to see how much it makes for my garden.
