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: Sean
At some point you'll need to stop adding and just let it finish. That's why I'm getting another one to load up while the first batch is cooking. You need your own sifter.

65 gal. Compost Tumbler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 163.

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.

I am still assembling it. The instructions state it should take two people two hours to assemble. I don't have a second person to help, so plan on taking some time. And, the instructions are sometimes confusing because there are so many different types of nuts and washers. Right now my big battle is being able to get the screws all around each panel. The screws don't always catch both pieces to hold the composter together. I hope it stays together once I have it completely assembled.

I had to climb inside (from underneath) to hold screw clamps while my husband worked on the outside. Good thing I'm small, 5 foot 2". I did most of it myself and I'm in my 50's but it took me several hours. All the complaints about the holes not matching up, were spot on. What a pain in the butt, so I redrilled new holes like others suggested. So far it seems to be working good, lots of heat when I open the lid. Can't wait to use my black gold. Will probably buy another one to fill as the first batch is cooking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusted hinges I've bern composting for over 10 years and bought this model to replace the Rubbermaid compost bin that requires a pitchfork for turning. I like that it is off the ground and that keeps tree roots from invading the bin, but the hinges have rusted and broken in half. Also, the scooped design allows for rain water to collect on top, which can breed mosquitoes. In heavy rain, the bin leaks water in and saturates the composting materials, which makes for a soggy mess. If I can get outside in time, I'm covering the whole contraption with a tarp to prevent this. BIG design flaw. I know my "Lifetime" bin is not the only one this has happened to because I volunteer at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore and a man tried to donate one that was a rusted mess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to build Do NOT pre drill the holes in the plastic as the manual says. When you assemble, run the screws right through both panels while keeping them held tight with your other hand. Scews will be much more secure and panels will line up perfectly. Then you can install the nuts. Assembly took 1 hour 15min by myself. Also assemble frame on flat ground so its straight when you screw it together.

This is my second one of the same well made I had the kid put it together he did it in about 1.5 hour. Well worth the money compared to others I like the fact its off the ground. No more critters coons possums skunks digging in the scrap pile the dogs no longer have bad breath from eating nasty scraps. The reason for having two is you can let one finish while starting the second.

Missing from the package was all paper-work, no instructions on putting it together and no DVD. I am in contact with Home Depot who has had no success contacting the company. The Tumbler was sent from the company. If we can't get with the company today, I'll return the Tumbler to Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from broken bolt So one of the bolts that anchors the lid of my tumbler broke, basically rendering my composter worthless. I emailed Lifetime and within hours received a positive response. Within days I received replacement parts. I'm back in the composting business. I guess the Lifetime name IS accurate!!!!!
