Product Description

The Compact ComposTumbler takes your kitchen and yard waste and turns it into rich compost in weeks, instead of months (or even years). Designed for suburban gardeners and homeowners with smaller properties. The drum holds 22 cubic feet (9.5 bushels, 88 gallons), leaving plenty of room for fruits, vegetable, grass, leaves and any other organic matter you may have. A large door opening and gear driven handle made it easy to use. It has interior fins to help mix the material as it turns. Assembled dimensions are 43" H x 42" W x 33" D and it weighs 60 lbs empty. Made of rust-resistant galvanized steel for long life. Its sage green color allows it to blend into your property. Comes with a 2 year warranty on all parts.

This is my 2nd Compact ComposTumbler. The first Tumbler lasted for almost ten years of constant use before it became too rusted to use anymore. The rust started around year 5 at the removable door cutout corners on the body of the bin and eventually compromised the door attachment points, and I also noticed a couple of rust cracks in other locations on the bin body. Yeah, I wish the bin lasted a "lifetime" but, frankly, the bin was easy to use, worked very well for almost 10 years and I got a lot of great compost from my household and yard waste during that time. Considering that composting involves constant moisture and heat over time, I'm not surprised that rust is an eventual problem. It'd be great if the bin was made from stainless steel but I suspect it'd be so expensive that almost nobody would buy it. All in all, though, not a bad tradeoff for a modest cost amortized over a decade. As for assembly: I'm moderately skilled with tools so I didn't think assembly was very difficult (but this was the 2nd time - albeit in ten years - that I assembled a ComposTumbler). Challenging, yes, because setting the partially assembled bin into the exact locations in both end cap slots was tricky and a 2nd pair of hands would've been very helpful.
A note: as an experiment to deter rust I sprayed the interior side of the bin body sections and removable door with two coats of clear silicone sealer and allowed the silicone to thoroughly dry before final assembly. The silicone sealer is still intact after three months and several compost cycles, but I'll have to wait years before I know if the silicone sealer experiment works to delay or deter rust.

I've read some reviews on ComposTumbler's hit or miss history with customer service, but from what I understand, they were recently bought by Mantis.

I broke a part (my fault) on my ComposTumbler and they were what you'd expect for high quality customer service. They knew the part, they got the order to me quickly and were very friendly and helpful.

I like my ComposTumbler so it's good to know that the customer service has improved significantly (from reading older reviews) since Mantis took over.

Great product, great service. Buy one.

This composter is easy to turn since it has a handle and gears. The only drawback is the lid falls off instead of being permanently attached. This makes emptying it easy, but you have to remember to latch it carefully before turning.

Granted, it's been about 10 years, but the drum is rusted through and I had to purchase a new composter. I didn't spend > $300 and the new one is much smaller, but there's no metal in it so I'm thinking it will last longer. I loved the handle crank, and "up on stilts" bin for ease of emptying, and also recall no problems with assembly, but sure wish the circular piece in the middle had been fashioned from the same heavy-plastic that the sides were made from.
