Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Functional I upon weeks of research, I choose this bin primarily for the fact that it has wheels, figuring I'd need to move it to appropriately sunny/shades places since it get to hot here (Phoenix, AZ). And definitely over paid. Product was easy enough to assemble, only thing is the seam for the entire barrel runs vertical through the barrels center, which is not tight enough to keep it from leaking at EVERY point in the seem!! So, yeah, leaks stinky composts fluid constantly. Leaks over the ground, leaving huge mess and attracting fruit flies. Aside from that, IMPOSSIBLE to turn! No handle, no grips, nothing! Not even half full and I literally cannot turn it by myself using all of my weight. If it was not already full of waste, I'd return it. Terribly designed product :( Wheels work great though!

Rated 1 out of 5 by The nut to the right wheel did not fit and the threaded portion that holds the wheel broke off during assembly. It's Junk. The wheel broke off. What a piece of junk. We need to have it replaced with a composter that works! January 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to move composter Purchased this composter because it is on wheels. It was easy to move to the location it will inhabit during the summer and, hopefully, will be easy to move to its winter home closer to the house. It was OK as far as putting it together I just wish the screws and nuts were easier to get together (not the best quality hardware). September 11, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by great idea, lets see how well it works. well, although it was really easy to put together, there were some glitches in the manufacture process, i.e., the bolt holes were not all properly drilled out. it did not help that one of the nuts was missing either. the weld in some places was pretty sloppy also. I do expect better quality from Home Depot. January 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Appears to be a good quality product Just bought it but seems to be pretty decent. Bought it because it has the wheels for mobility. July 24, 2012
