Featuring a 65 gal. (8.7 cu. ft.) capacity, the lifetime compost tumbler is the perfect addition to your backyard.

Constructed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), the compost tumbler is durable, UV-protected, and has dark, double-wall panels to absorb and retain heat.

How do I harvest compost while continuously adding new items to the mix?

Does this composter come with a built-in sifter or something like that? If I'm constantly adding new items to my batch how will it ever get "done"?
Asked by: Anonymous
Get a second composter and alternate between the two. There is not great way.

Asked by: Alexandra
Should be. As long is door is latched. I don't see how any rodents could get into it.

65 gal. Compost Tumbler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use & move, assembly took time, spare part We have had this four years, find it easy to use and to move when mowing grass - grab the crossbar and slide it sideways on its "skis". Assembly took longer than I expected, but the directions were all accurate; it took my preteen son and me maybe 2.5-4 hours (it was a long time ago). The pivot bolt for the lid broke on one side this year, and in these reviews we saw that they can send replacement parts. I called and they mailed me four at no charge (there are just 2 on the composter, so I have 3 spares). I waited a full month for them to arrive, but they came in the mail. By the way, I think the pivot bolt breaks when the lid slides off unintentionally when you have it all the way open with the composter tilted back. The lid is designed to lift easily off the pivots, but when you let it slip off in a crooked way, it can bend and eventually break the bolt.

The installation was so complicated and required so many tools and technical skills, I was convinced, by the end, that I was being punk'd. I started fantasizing that friends were secretly filming me trying to put it together. It's truly the most elaborate "assembly required" product I've ever encountered. I had hired a professional furniture installer to do it at first, but he thought I needed to return parts because the holes weren't pre-drilled. As it turns out, it requires drilling with screw bits into the metal legs. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, just try it. I told my parents I could do something like this easily. Hahahahaha My dad is delighted with the tumbler.

We put in all kitchen garbage, all lawn clippings and trimmings, plus dead plants with root ball attached, and they all break down just fine. The only things that don't quickly break down are branches or sticks bigger than about 1/4 inch diameter. I like the way it locks in place and unlocks when you want to turn it. The opening is big so you can easily dump your mower catcher full of grass. I use a hay fork to distribute the contents evenly. The purchase price is the only cost, and it sure beats having your yard waste hauled off every week.

The product seems to be exactly what we need, but when receiving the box it had been opened or possibly busted open during shipment and parts were loose inside, cards of nuts, bolts, and washers were busted out of there package rattling around the shipping box....some of the nuts, and threaded screws that cut threads were missing, easy to find at Lowe's locally, the screws that self tap into the piping would not start due to the screws didn't have the cutting end like part of a drill bit to get it started, again were available at Lowe's also....I do have the pictures of the box as it was received, and the packs of hardware cards, but I will not go frothier, the Composter is what the wife wanted and I was able to get together after buying little hardware, and would order it again.....enough said..!!

When we moved, we left a larger Lifetime tumbler behind, but this one is plenty big. The best change is that it's so much easier to turn the barrel, as opposed to our other one. Assembly is a bit tricky - pay attention to every little diagram - but it's sturdy and the clips have stayed tight in the 5 months so far. The pin that locks it in position might freeze in our icy weather, so I'm not planning on using it. I don't see a need, anyway.

I was disappointed when I picked it up in that the box was dented and ripped and retaped many times. The box was also filthy. It took almost two hours to put this tumbler together. I am a contractor and have all the tools so it's not that I'm not handy. It seems like a quality made product and well thought out. The final product is great and am happy with it in the end.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Assembly! Really! Took two adults, one with welding and car repair experience to put this together. Eight man hours total. Drilling the holes in the plastic, no problem, but when you put the parts together the holes didn't line up. Looks great now that it is together, we'll see how it goes. Would only recommend for someone who has patience and master assembly experience.

We have not used it long enough to know. I assembled the unit by myself in two sessions of about 2 hours each. Assembly is a bit tedious, but explained well enough. An electric screwdriver is a must. I've turned the use of it over to my wife. She seems to be pleased with it so far.
