Product Overview

Create your own compost and reduce landfill waste. With a Lifetime Composter you can easily reduce, reuse, and recycle kitchen and garden waste into a rich organic soil conditioner. Compost helps retain the moisture in your soil and adds rich nutrients for healthy plants. The Lifetime Composter is designed with black, double-walled panels to absorb and retain the heat that decomposes the material. An internal bar mixes the compost and allows the flow of oxygen that is necessary to break down the material into a rich, black organic fertilizer for your garden. Unlike compost bins and other tumbler-style composters, the lightweight 80 Gal. Tumbler easily turns on its axis for balanced rotation saving you the time and effort of turning a compost heap with a pitchfork. You'll also appreciate the locking pin that secures the tumbler and the extra-large removable lid for easy filling and dumping.

  • Center axis balance promotes easy rotation
  • Black double-walled panels are designed to absorb and retain heat
  • Aeration bar provides the right amount of oxygen necessary for material breakdown
  • Powder-coated steel frame provides a sturdy base for the large 80 Gal. bin
  • Galvanized steel feet prevent rusting and deterioration
  • Commercial-grade lid fasteners create a strong, airtight seal
  • Locking pin prevents unwanted rotation while loading and unloading the composter
  • Molded grips provide a firm hold during bin rotation
  • Backed by a 5-year limited manufacturer warranty

Customer Questions & Answers

Does the 80gal. Compost tumbler have 3 doors or one door ?

Asked by: tpaulr
One door. It is essentially 3-sided, and two of the sides are screwed together, the third is held on by hinges and levered clamps. The "door" opens very wide and provides plenty of access space.

Typically, how long does it take to produce compost?

Asked by: gardenflower
Gardenflower, I think the mfg. says about 4-6 weeks. But, this all depends on what you put into the composter. Example: Lets say you put a 5gal. bucket of grass clipping, 25 sheets of paper and a 1 foot 2x4 in the composter and expect it to be compost in 4 to 6 weeks. It ain't gona happen. You'll have a bunch of dried up grass with 25 sheets of paper and a 2x4. Composting works best in Volume. If you take the same items in different form and volume, lets say 25 gals of grass clipping, 5 to 10 gals of shreaded paper and 1/2 a bucket of sawdust along with a shovel of good ole dirt. Put all of this in the composter and wet down, by the end of a week it should be heating up and decreasing in volume (composting) and the possiblity of compost in 4 to 6 weeks. Again, it work better in volume. With volume it is easier to control the moisture, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon levels which feeds the microbs. Time depends on each person and what they are composting. Typically for me, I keep adding to my composter for about 4 to 5 weeks (+ or -) until I get about 1/2 to 3/4 full on a steady basis and then start my 4 to 6 week composting. Hope this helps.

80 Gal. Compost Tumbler is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 177.

Instructions were poor, assembly requires several tools that do not come with it. Would be a great test for engaged couples to see if they really love each other pre-marriage.

My husband is a tall guy with long arms and was able to reach into the tumbler to make most of the required connections but even he required some assistance to reach some areas. Some instructions that are written would be helpful rather than symbols and pictures which makes using which screws when unclear. We assemble things a lot and do pretty well most of the time but this device was difficult. It could be improved with better instructions. I like the fact that it is lightweight and easy to operate and fill. We have had it a couple of weeks and I would say it has met my expectations.

Since I only purchased these a few weeks ago I cannot comment on how well they work as far as composting. They are very well built and reasonable easy to assemble. I would say they should last for years in our central Arizona sun. The assemble instructions were reasonable easy to understand, however they were some things that were confusing in the pictorials, but nothing I could not handle. They even come with a DVD showing how to compost; Do's and Dont's ... very well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so easy to assemble, a monkey can do it. i read all of these reviews before i finally purchased this on sale at the end of the growing season. i was a bit worried that so many people were saying the directions were hard to follow and it was difficult to assemble by yourself. rather than blindly follow the pictographic instructions, i looked at all of the parts, looked at the instructions and decided by using 4 clamps i could hold the three main parts together and drill and assemble the main barrel all at once then add the legs as the last step. it took me about 20 minutes to build the whole thing. it spins like a champ, it's sturdy and well made and i'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

I love the final product, but it was a bit of a challenge to put together, as I am not very experienced at using a battery operated drill, which is a requirement. I would prefer instructions to be written out rather than pictures. But--- I love the composter! it is the nicest design have had, and I have owned 4 different composters over the years. It turn easily, and is large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I called for replacement hinges due to corrosion due to ocean air This has been a wonderful tumbler. I called for replacement parts a few weeks before and some arrived but the order was incomplete and a part defective. I called today and talked to Craig who listened well and had great communication skills. He ordered me the parts I need. I am encouraged and feel the order will be perfect. Thank you Craig.
