Going green? Recycle your vegetable scraps into a nutritious fertilizer for your vegetable and flower gardens with the Lifetime 65 gal. Composter. While this composter holds less than our 80 gallon composter, the cooking process takes less time because it is designed with a much larger aeration tube. This increases airflow and breaks the compost down into a fine fertilizer. It is constructed with heavy-duty black panels to absorb and retain the heat that decomposes the organic material. The lightweight 65 gallon tumbler turns on its axis for balanced rotation. The non-cylindrical design of the tumbler allows for more effective mixing of contents when rotated. Extra-large removable lid allows easy access for filling and dumping. With your compost ingredients enclosed inside the composter tub, you will not be subjected to an unsightly, smelly, fly attracting, open-air compost heap in your garden. And no more turning it all with a pitchfork. Save your back, save your money, with the convenient Lifetime 65 gal. composter. This product does not contain BPA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but tough to put together Took me much longer than the 2 hours indicated to put this together. However, once up and running, I am pleased with how it works. Very easy to tumble.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hardware Problem Both metal pivots that allow the top to open have broken and it appears that I will not be able to buy replacements which render the tumbler useless. This product needs better support. Age: 4 years

Rated 2 out of 5 by from won't last a lifetime... The nuts and bolts are not stainless so they will rust in a few years. For a few pennies extra they could have actually made a product that would last a lifetime...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Results, Great Value! I'm pretty lazy about getting out there to rotate it regularly, but I have had mine for several years now, and even with my laziness, the results from this thing make my garden grow like mad! I have had this for at least six years, and only now am I needing to get parts (new hinge pins). We'll see how that goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, easy to use, compost in a month or I've had this tumbler for about 1 1/2 years and it works great - did have to figure out a mixture - if it smells a little, that's good. I had one problem with the Lid Hinges (pivot bolts), sent Customer Service a message and they sent me new ones - back to working great again. I was able to put it together myself except for the last few Nuts/bolts.

I don't see a spigot for draining the compost tea.. is that a possibility?

Asked by: Christy
There isn’t a spigot. The compost tea leaks through the seams on the bottom of the composter. That is why we recommend placing the composter in an area where it will be okay for the compost tea to drain.
