Why spend money on expensive fertilizers when you can create your own composting and reduce landfill waste as well? With a Lifetime Compost Tumbler you can easily reduce, reuse, and recycle kitchen and garden waste into a rich organic soil conditioner. Compost helps retain the moisture in your soil and adds rich nutrients for healthy plants. The Lifetime Compost Tumbler is designed with black, double-walled panels to absorb and retain the heat that decomposes the material. An internal aeration bar allows the flow of oxygen that is necessary to break down the material into a rich, black organic fertilizer for your garden. The lightweight 80 gallon compost tumbler easily turns on its axis for balanced rotation—saving you the time and effort of turning a compost heap with a pitchfork! The non-cylindrical design of the tumblers allows for more effective mixing of contents when rotated. You’ll also appreciate the extra-large removable lid for easy filling and dumping. This composter has many advantages over an open compost heap. It contains unsightly scraps and their accompanying odors in an enclosed container that is inaccessible to pesky rodents and will not attract insects. This product does not contain BPA.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great composter with a design flaw I wrote another review under Tytow, but I wanted to add something important about this composter. I liked the first one so much I bought another so I could have one loading while the other cooks. However, on both composters the "...internal bar mixes the compost and allows the flow of oxygen that is necessary to break down the material into a rich, black organic fertilizer for your garden." which is a PVC pipe with holes drilled in it, bent and fell out. I assume this was due to the interal heat and/or weight of material on the bar. I'm going to empty both composters and buy a metal bar and drill holes in it and see if that works. I hope they fix this flaw, because other than that, this really is an excellant composter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Composter, easy to assemble This is a great Compost bin. I shopped around and was considering building a framed wire mesh compost system and found the lifetime tumbler bin. I assembled it myself in just under 2 hours but the instructions say that 2 adults are needed. It would have been helpful, no doubt, but not neccessary. Instructions were clear and easy to read and the drawings were concise. I'm considering adding a couple of lawnmower wheels to one end of the base to make it more mobile. It's a great compost bin as I've added yard waste, grass clippings and a few veggie/fruit waste and it's maintaining 135-140 deg already. Considering buying a 2nd one for the other end of my garden and to keep the process moving along. Looking forward to some rich compost come next spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compost tumbler !!!!!!!!! I received a compost tumbler for my birthday, being a 64 year old great grandmother it was a perfect gift. I opened the gift on a Monday when I was at home alone.... So I assembled it by my self on the patio. I had the few tools it required to put his little gift together....... It had two bolts I could not get by myself ,Holding the wrench inside and turning the nut outside,short arms I guess but that was the only part I didn't do myself. It would be easier with two people and the instructions say that. My com poster is at work. Instructions were easy to understand and I love my new gift . Thanks Lifetime !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! A little bit of work to put together but well worth the effort. Very strudy design that just withstood its first Rocky Mountain winter. Easy to use/rotate and doesn't look too bad in the backyard either. Would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Bottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. I have been wanting an enclosed composter that spins rather then needing a pitch fork. This one was a great price and works great. I am getting really exctied for my first batch of compost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i bought 1 and now ordered 2 more Bottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. great product the only thing i found that needs to be improved upon is the plastic rod in the middle for airation. it bends and plugs up. i will modify this on the other 2 i have ordered before i put them together. overall great composter. the weight of the compost makes it a little hard to turn but that is to be expected. i like it very much and would recomend it to my friends.

My husband bought the 80 gallon composter but misplaced the bag of plastic caps that you screw onto the screws for this unit. Is it possible to get another bag? if so, how much would that cost for shipping to Ohio?

Is there directions for putting the product together that I can download and print. The instructions do not tell me what screws I should use at which location.
