there are 4 quarter panels that come together, but it’s pretty
straightforward to build.
This is my 4th or 5th compost bin over the past 10 years. I have 3 in my back yard right now
including the Spin Bin.The ones that tumble end over end can be harder to tumble over when
they are full, but they also tend to hold more material than the
horizontal ones, and I prefer the bigger capacity. My technique is to
get it swinging back and forth and then use the momentum to make it
tumble if it’s super full with heavy kitchen scraps. With grass and
leaves only it doesn’t get that heavy, so it isn’t necessary.
Most of the other ones in this price range have a much lower capacity
because they are smaller. The difference between 50 and 60 gallons
doesn’t sound like that much, but it’s actually 20 percent less.
Black color is nice because it heats up the contents well in the sun.
Lids on both sides are convenient when you want to add more stuff from
With tumblers you can batch compost where you fill up the entire bin
with the right mix of carbon and nitrogen rich materials (greens and
browns) and then wait for the whole batch to finish. But that’s a lot
of work and planning, so I don’t usually do it that way.
The other way is to continuously add material to it and let everything
break down over a longer period of time. Toward the end, you’ll have
mostly finished compost with a few things you still recognize. You
just screen that stuff out, or stop adding materials and wait a few
more weeks until it breaks down too. If you add too many greens
(nitrogen rich materials) it will get all goopy and can smell. So add
browns if that happens, like dried leaves or dried out brown grass
If you just have a bunch of dry leaves in there, nothing will happen.
So add more nitrogen rich greens like coffee grounds, vegetable scraps
from the kitchen and fresh grass clippings.
Just keep adding more greens or more browns if you get off track, and
eventually you’ll have finished compost.
Up until now I have just done a passive compost system of throwing kitchen waste off my deck into one area and allowing it to break down. If I have to wait for a full bin to break down I will have nowhere to add waste until that happens unless I just empty it into the tub and allow it to continue breaking down. I agree with another reviewer that the container does not seem to be 60 gallons but for me perhaps that is okay as I am not sure how I will be able to handle the weight of that much material. I will check though, just to be sure this wasn't a case of false advertising.
Additional information after first emptying of bin:
Pros: The compost mix looks great. I layer kitchen scraps with yard waste and what came out was very nice. It still needs to break down a bit more in the tub where I emptied it, but I am very pleased with the compost.
Cons: The bin is VERY heavy to turn over and without support it seems a bit flimsy. I was still able to turn it and the material mixes well. Today I tried to empty it and here was the problem. I had hoped to empty it directly into a tub but that couldn't happen unless the composter was lifted higher and the I wouldn't be able to reach it to fill it. I ended up finding a heavy plastic which I placed under it and could only empty out a bit at a time. I then needed to pull the plastic with mulch from under the bin and shovel it into the tub I had standing by. Process was then repeated until the bin was emptied. This is not easy for a relatively short woman. I would like to know how others have solved these problems.
I am relatively happy with the results but the design could use some improvement although I haven't been able to figure out a suggestion. I could ideally put it near where I would like the product to be emptied but in our rainy climate I need to be able to empty my kitchen scrap bin easily without being rained on or traipsing through mud. I did see a similarly designed bin locally at a hardware store but it was smaller. Now that I see how it works, the smaller one might have been a better option but I definitely like the metal tumble bar inside and the alternative bin did not have that.
Pros to the Spinbin:
-compact for shipping
-less expensive than Tumbleweed
-the double bar in center
Cons to the Spinbin:
-plastic feels less robust than Tumbleweed
-lids much harder to turn ditto
-lid latch parts much smaller ditto
Finally, the unit I received had a minor but annoying manufacturing defect on all four quadrants: one of the slots where the lid latch slides in still had the plastic in it, so the latch couldn't slide in. I was able to punch out the plastic along there on each of the four quadrants with a small file (tight fit/fiddly location so it took a while to find the right tool), but it's a bit jagged looking now and doesn't slide as smoothly as it could.
So, half a star off for the cons above, one star off for the manufacturing defect. Hoping that in use those things fade into the background, as overall it still looks like a good design and it saves materials for items to only be built as robustly as they need to be - so half a star back up for that. If it fails us in the months ahead, I will come back and amend this review!
