Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard to assemble It took me 4 hours to assemble the unit and the locking mechanism for the tumbler does not reach the holes. I have no idea why this is the case. Also, dirt falls from the corners when you rotate the tumbler. Not impressed. December 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Tumbling I read all of the reviews before purchasing this tumbler and my main concern was the difficulty to put together. However, I put together the entire compost tumbler (minus the drills into the metal on the legs) by myself, and I'm female, if that makes any difference. The directions were easy to follow, and everything, except drilling screws into metal was easy. As for the ease of use? Well, you just open it up, lock the lid, and then tumble a couple of times, and tada! I really like how compact this tumbler is. It doesn't look weird in our backyard, and it is at the right height to empty into a wheelbarrow (I researched that aspect on a lot of other composters before purchasing this one). This is definitely the composter I would recommend to my friends, and I have! July 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Where's the verbiage in the instructions? I recently purchased the 50 gallon tumbler. Now I was raised where instructions explained, in detail, how to put an item together, and also with pictures. These instructions are a bunch of symbols...really?!! Do you realize how, at times, symbols, lose the entire meaning? If you buy one, go to a store that has one put together and it will be much clearer prior to putting yours together April 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product with cruddy instructions The compost tumbler is great, but the other reviews mentioning difficulty with assembly are true. I read them and though, whatever I am sure it can't be that hard. There are no words in the instructions, so you have to pay attention to all the little details in the pictures. There are several steps where if you aren't paying attention to the way the parts are rotated, you could get yourself in trouble. With that said, once together it is great, works well, easy to open one handed and was a great value. I will likely buy another next christmas for my in-laws. January 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT PRODUCT A little difficult to assemble, however light and easy to move around. Fits easy in a corner and out of the way. Easy operation and works as prescribed. October 16, 2014
