Description

  • 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.

Specifications

  • 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:

    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.

            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.

                    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.
