I have desired a compost tumbler ever since I first heard of the idea. It seemed like the perfect solution to all my composting woes. Over the course of 25 years, I have periodically checked in on the market. Each time I was dismayed at the ridiculously high prices. Each time I resolved to make my own compost tumbler...an ambition that ultimately went nowhere. So when my wife and I walked into Costco and saw the Lifetime 60021 for $99, I was ecstatic!

Assembly was pretty darn simple, although my 15-year-old daughter had to help briefly with two of the steps. I already owned an electric drill and an assortment of Philips head bits, so the assembly was quick, painless, and fun. In fact I loved the way the thing was designed and how well it went together.

Not following any one set of directions, I mowed up bunches of dry leaves, dead weeds, musty piles of grass, wood chips, and kitchen scraps with my rotary lawnmower, and dumped the contents of the catcher into the composter. It had enough room for many such loads. Then I added, ultimately, 12 gallons of water along with 1/2 cup urea.

The freezing temps at night have been no deterrent to microbial action. Every morning when I open the lid to monitor the progress, clouds of vapor rise off the warm mass. I'm extremely pleased with several things: 1) how easy it is to mix the contents, 2) how much material it can hold, 3) how well it retains moisture, 4) how well it provides oxygen to support aerobic decomposition, 5) how sturdy it is, and 6) how much value I got for my money. We will certainly buy a second tumbler, and perhaps a third. (The back yard is large and home to more than 60 trees.)

I purchased the Lifetime Tumbler at Costco. I've been looking at compost tumblers for some time and happened to stumble upon the 75 gallon unit for $99.00. The only issue I have is that the brackets that hold the cylinder together started to rust after only a few months. Now, they are completely rusted and one has snapped in half. I found the Lifetime website and could not find any sign of the compost tumbler, parts, or faqs. Hmmmm....So, I e-mailed them to see if I get a response.
I would assume these parts are at least galvanized but maybe not.

Why I refuse to buy any LIFETIME products: I just walked in from my backyard, ticked off again by my LIFETIME 80 gallon outdoor compost tumbler I bought from Costco. It is five years old now, but I haven't been able to use it for the past three years. After two years of use the hinges on the door rusted through and broke. I contacted LIFETIME via email seeking to replace the hinges. I didn't demand free hinges, I just inquired whether I could get replacement hinges. I was willing to pay for them, provided the expense wasn't too great, even though I believed they should have lasted more than two years. I received a defiant, almost angry, reply from a LIFETIME representative (a man whose name I do not recall) stating that LIFETIME would replace the hinges this one time but would never replace any other parts, and told me to never again request parts. The response was insulting. I let it go, waited for the parts and then they arrived. THE WRONG PARTS. I never pursued it further. I bought a composter from another manufacturer and decided I would jury-rig the repair of the LIFETIME composter with parts from the hardware store. I've never gotten around to that project. But every time I place compost material in the new composter I walk by the unusable LIFETIME composter and think "What a piece of crap." Whenever I encounter anyone in BJ's or Costco looking at a LIFETIME composter, or any LIFETIME product, I take a moment to stop and tell them my story. The failure of the LIFETIME product was bad, but the response I received from the company was insulting and compounded by incompetence. If I could rate this with zero stars I would.

I own 2 of these. The five year old Lifetime unit works great but the new one has weaker brackets that will not hold the unit closed when the tumbler is rotated. From five stars to one star because the manufacture cut corners. I had to add a bolt/wingnut to hold the lid closed when tumbling. The new thinner brackets bent and the lid started to come open when I tried to tumble the compost. Would have been a real mess... Picture shows the fix using a 6 inch 1/4 20 bolt and wingnut.

I have been looking at tumblers for years but never purchased them because of cost. This is a great reasonably priced tumbler. My husband didn't understand why people complained about putting it together; it was easy with the 2 of us.
A little hard to turn when full but still easier then turning the old way with a fork. Loaded with half finished compost from my old bin and turned out my first batch already and I love how easy it was to put in the wheelbarrow.

Update, Sept 2013: Worked great for 2 years now having problems with the tumbler filling up with water between panels. Wont get hot so it doesn't make compost anymore, even tried compost activator. Not sure how to fix this problem.

I have looked at many, many composters, before deciding on this unit. I too purchased mine at Costco, except that it was an 80 gallon composter versus the 75 gallon advertised here. I look forward to the day when Amazon price matches. In most cases, Amazon is a great company, with great prices!! However, I feel they would benefit, as well as us, if they would price match.

This composter, as many have found, is a very large composter, at a price much less than other way more expensive models. The poly outer structure satisfies a problem I had with a few other units with galvanized or steel outer bin walls. It does help having a second set of hands when assembling. However, with diligence, one person can assemble the unit. I look forward to the rewards of this unit.

I also have a large, 12' wide X 16' deep X 6' tall compost bin, a drive-in unit, that I use to process leaves, scrap mulch, etc. Anyone considering composting in a bed-type configuration similar to this, consider using a large quantity of Nightcrawlers to help in the composting. Nightcrawlers will not work very well in the Lifetime unit, as worms do not generally do well in environments of excessive heat. Just a thought for those that may be thinking of adding worms to your Lifetime unit, with the thought that worms will speed up the process. Don't get me wrong, worms greatly speed the decomposition process, but just not as suitable in a tumbler type composter.

Hope this helps the newbies out there. I thank those before me that provided me the feedback to make a sound decision.
