Additional Information

Compost Aerator Loosens Materials for Faster Composting

  • Easy-to-turn Compost Crank® Twist aerates compost effectively
  • Mixes materials and incorporates air to speed decomposition
  • Curved, cushioned handle provides a solid grip

With an easy twist you can aerate the materials in your compost pile or bin for faster, more thorough decomposition. Simply twist the spiral tip into the pile and then lift straight up to mix materials and create new air passages. Repeat throughout the bin until material is thoroughly mixed. The aerator is weatherproof, so you can hook it onto the side of your bin where it's always handy. We recommend aerating small bins every few days or whenever you add fresh material. Aerate large bins once or twice a week.

Easy!

Comments about : Compost Crank® Twist:

Used it right away. Simple idea, but efficient. Not one to splurge on single-use gadgets, I had been using a pitchfork (cracked my plastic composter), and then used a garden "claw" (awkward, and cracked my composter- again!). This was SUCH an improvement... made the task easier, and did a better job, to boot.

A real backsaver

      Comments about : Compost Crank® Twist:

      I was getting really frustrated trying to keep my compost bin aerated. It is a barrel sized bin that gets pinned to the ground and I had a hard time getting enough leverage when trying to mix the new compost in with the old. This product is simple to use, and since I'm able to aerate the compost more frequently, I already notice more decomposing heat being generated. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend this product to other gardeners.

      The Compost Crank really works!

      By Crager

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about : Compost Crank® Twist:

      I've been composting for decades and I've always had trouble keeping the compost cooking, because I did not turn it often enough, because it is hard work when the compost pile is large.
      I bought this tool last fall and used it a few times.
      I started turning the compost, this spring, when I thought the compost was thawed. I've been cranking through the compost a few times a week since then. Yesterday I noticed the compost was warm, and our temperatures are not warm on a consistent basis yet. I am so happy to see how well it works - it's easy even for an older person, and my compost is cooking!

      Brilliant tool, especially if you're short!

        Best Uses

          Comments about : Compost Crank® Twist:

          This is honestly one of the best tools I could have bought for gardening in my admittedly short (so far) experience. I stand at a mere 5 feet tall and was wondering how I was going to be able to turn my compost bin without the advantage of height and reach. In just a very few minutes, my compost is turned and I'm walking away from it happy. I couldn't be happier about it, and I'm sure it's no harder to use than the original and more expensive Compost Crank. I can make an easy twisting action to spiral it right down and bring it straight back up again, with no problems or wrenching of my back. It's one piece of solid stainless steel, so you know it won't break or rust. Just brilliant. Especially if you're on the shorter side, you really couldn't regret getting this for turning your compost.

          Solid tool

          Pros

          • Simple In A Good Way
          • Solidly Built

          Cons

          • Handle Is Awkward

          Best Uses

          • Aerating Compost

          Comments about : Compost Crank® Twist:

          This is a basic, solidly built tool. It easily aerates and mixes compost. My only knock is that a T-handle would have been more ergonomic, but I enjoy this tool. The corkscrew action makes it a joy to use and it feels solid in the hand.

            Best Uses

              Comments about : Compost Crank® Twist:

              I can't say enough good about this product. I have a deep compost bin, and was able to reach the
              bottom and pull up material with only a little
              tugging. I turned over the entire bin in about
              10 minutes! Since I'm 77 and no longer very strong,
              this was a little miracle for me.
              It also works for getting stubborn planting
              material out of any pot it fits in.

              So far this works better than my old tool moving the compost around.
