This is a spectacular composter, and I hope it is worth its steep price. But at this price, the nice people at Joraform should have hired a technical writer to make their assembly manual understandable and accurate.
If you buy this composter, note the following:
1) In Step 4M, there is an inexplicable instruction to "Note that the locations of holes are not symmetrical on A." What this means is that one of the legs of each of the tubular steel stands has an extra set of holes in it. In step 8, you'll use these holes to mount the diagonal braces. Make sure that these extra holes face the same side. Or you'll have a lot of disassembly and reassembly to do just when you think you've finally made it all the way through the bad Swedlish.
2) In Step 5, make sure that as you assemble the walls of the composter drum, the wall flaps go on the outside of the drum ends. I felt silly after assembling them incorrectly the first time, but it is not clear in the written instructions or in the sketches.
3) As you assemble the drum, it's easy for the divider between the two chambers to become a bit misaligned. Try to keep it aligned with the octagonal drum ends. Even if it becomes misaligned, it's possible to shift it into its proper place by reaching inside the drum and tugging the divider in a circular motion along its outside edges.
For the purposes of composting, I'm hoping that the Joraform will get a full five stars. But its assembly manual gets zero. Averaging up from 2.5, let's go with three.
It arrived double boxed and the only flaw was a dent in one of the foam pieces which probably happened before shipping.
It took me about 3 ½ hours to put together. Part of that time was because I ignored the worthless instructions and ran back & forth to another room where I paused my computer after each step of the YouTube assembly video (by EartheasyTV) which was invaluable.
Also, if I’d had a helper it wouldn’t have taken so long. It was difficult matching up the screw holes as I lacked the strength to hold the panels down tight. However, I managed by laying it down and kneeling on it!
A power drill would have sped the screwing process but I don’t own one so had to take rests from gripping the screwdriver so hard.
Neither do I have wrenches and couldn’t have reached across to hold one nut while turning the other anyway. I borrowed a neighbor’s ratchet set which worked well.
A note about the video: it said to put the first panel on a side with no holes. All my sides had holes so I just picked one at random and it was okay. Also, the video I watched did not show or say anything about braces. I figured out afterwards that they have to go on first thing.
Also be careful not to drop or lose any screws or nuts. I had exactly only the number of hardware pieces needed even though the packing slip said there may be more.
By the way, I am 5’4”, weigh 115 pounds, and am a 71-year old woman so if I can put it together by myself, you guys ought to stop whining about assembly—LOL!
