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

      Instructions not well done

      By Donna

      from Adirondacks

      Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      The instruction for assembly we're not clear. Parts were labeled dd and cc . It would have been easier had the directions stated what letter fit where. After an hour I found specific directions from a reviewer and the task was done in 30 minutes. Also it took a reviewer to tell us what the 2 black plastic parts were for. The product looks great just would like better direction. Thankyou reviewers for the help.

        Comments about Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

        The product is exactly what I needed; I was apprehensive because it seemed expensive but I appreciate the ease of making compost this way. And I feel good throwing less stuff away!
        Also, the item was lost in transit and I really appreciate how Gardener's Supply dealt with that situation. When I finally got it I was extremely satisfied with the product.

            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.
