If you buy this composer, just know that you will need to make a few modifications for it to work and perform properly. Instead of using the little yellow clips which are designed to hold the panels together, (and will invariably fail when the composer is full), substitute large zip cords, 2 per connection. I have found that this will ensure proper fit and serviceability. Make sure that your composer is flat and level, I built a small riser and set it in the yard level. If the composer is not level the change in center of balance will make the composer difficult to turn. I put a small spigot on the bottom panel to capture the “compost tea” the would otherwise be lost during the removal of the composted material. Bought this item for the price, and got what I paid for. That being said, with a little time and effort can bo made to last a long time.
