Take advantage of a more efficient method of composting with the Lifetime Dual Composter. The dual tumbler design means you don't have to wait for your first batch of compost to finish cooking before you start on another one. This can eliminate weeks of waiting! Each 50 gallon tumbler is constructed of black double-walled polyethylene plastic to absorb heat and an internal aeration bar to create the necessary airflow needed to break down the compost ingredients. Four small vents are designed into each corner of the tumbler to provide additional airflow. The non-cylindrical design of the tumblers allows for more effective mixing of contents when rotated. The tumblers are set side-by-side on a sturdy steel base and can be easily turned on its axis for compost rotation. Use the red processing indicator clip to attach to the handle of the tumbler so you can keep track of which batch is cooking and which batch you can add fresh ingredients to. With the enclosed tumbler design you can speed up compost processing time and avoid the smelly, unsightly mess of an open compost heap. Save money on expensive fertilizers by creating your own rich, fresh compost for your vegetable and flower gardens. This product does not contain BPA.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hardware rusted first year I bought my composter from Costco to replace one a had had for 10+ years. However the first year the hardware rusted so I cannot open either bins.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked great at first, but didn't last When it was shiny and new, this was great. But in about 2 years of use, the clips that control rotation no longer locked into place, the bin leaks gross compost juice from almost every seam, cracks have developed in the joints, and mice (or something) chewed a sizable hole straight through the plastic on one side. Pretty much no longer usable. We didn't use it heavily, and it was in a fairly urban, clean environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Good quality, seems to hold up well to continued use and the weather outside. No stink by the house. It's easy to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked it while it lasted I have had my composter for 4+ years. It did take a long time to assemble. My pins to hold the barrels in place broke pretty shortly after we purchased it. All of the metal inside of the barrels began rusting shortly after we started using it. When it rains water gets inside of the lid, so when you tumble it you can hear water sloshing around inside of it. The closing mechanism has always been stiff but has been functional and served it's purpose, until today. One of the bars of the latch snapped off when I tried to turn it. It has composted a lot of soil over the last few years, but I don't think I will purchase this model again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been using the Composter for about a month. The Compost is developing and I am still adding to the first batch. The second composter is still empty. The unit has small flies (normal) but has little oder and is very easy to add material, rotate to mix and will be easy to empty. I really love the dual composter concept. When if finally get to the second composter/batch I'll have plenty of time for the first batch to cook and complete the final conversion to compost. I even through a chicken in there 3 weeks ago and currently don't see any remains. Assemply was somewhat easy. I did some assembly after sunset and had to disassemble and reassembly the composter drum, but it only resulted in a little extra time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, and backed by a dependable company! I purchased my dual tumbler 3 years ago and have used it constantly since. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, solid construction Just assembled this yesterday,it took my son and I about 1.5 hours. Good instructions for the most part. Time will tell if I have any rusting problems with the hinges, and how resistant this will be to a curious bear that has been known to climb our 7' fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual Composter - Easiest Assembley Instructions Ev We purchased the dual composter two days ago and assembled it yesterday. The assembly instructions and the packaging of the parts were simply the best we have encountered. Everything was labelled and pictured clearly making assembly very easy. The quality and workmanship in the construction of the bins is superb. It is very sturdy and will last a long time. I look forward to using the rotating barrel and never having to turn my compost again!
