Frequently Bought Together

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 provided 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 air tight seal
  • Locking pin prevents unwanted rotation while loading and unloading the composter
  • Molded grips provide a firm hold during bin rotation
  • 5 year limited manufacture warranty

Answer: 
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 Read More

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.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 135 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good. The instructions are pictorial so it takes a bit of studying to follow. Only needed help putting the nuts on the screws down in the bottom. Could have left them off it I did not have a helper. Nice earthy smell each time I open the lid to add more. That means it is working correctly. July 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality, large capacity This tumbler holds a lot, and rotates very smoothly. The latches secure easily; we haven't seen anything fall out so far. Assembly was more complicated than I expected; an electric drill (not included) is required to drill 4 holes in the metal posts and more than 30 holes in the plastic pieces that form the tumbler's sides. The drill bit is included. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great! I received this as a birthday gift from family. I have been talking about getting one so I was very happy to get it. It works great and easy and looks good and you would never think it was a compost station! May 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not pleased with product This product was hard to put together, had a defective piece that had to be replaced and is VERY difficult to use. An 80 gal "tumbler" composter that cost over a hundred dollars and wont tumble due to the weight is not very practical. I had better luck with the $10.00 composter I previously had. Not happy with the product at all. As soon as I can get it emptied I will be taking it back for a refund. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Don't listen to them... Many of the reviews say this is very hard to assemble, and the instructions are the worst they've seen. One guy even said it took 2 mechanically inclined people 4 hours to assemble. I just can't believe it... I found the parts to be very well packaged and marked, and if you spend 5 minutes actually looking at the instructions, it's actually very east to put together. I didn't have even one thing in the instructions that I didn't understand, or wouldn't go together correctly. The only time I needed help was holding some plastic nuts in place for a few seconds each. I had my 10 year old help me for about 3 minutes total. The rest I did on my own and completed it easily in 1-1/2 hours. Quality materials, and I'm happy with my purchase. The only negative would be that for the price paid, I would think that the holes would have been pre-drilled. While it wasn't hard to do, I thought this could have been more easily done at the factory. Don't be scared off by those writing all the negative reviews. If you can turn a wrench, run a drill, and understand simple drawings, it won't be an issue. You got this! July 28, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NOT SURE OF THIS This composter had very poor instructions. Very hard to assemble per the manual. But once done it seems to work well. At least it turns and the compost is smelling like it should while breaking down. Will know more in a couple of weeks. Holds a nice amount of cut grass and waste material. Purchaser needs to be able to understand and work with tools. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product. difficult assembly as in reviews Difficult assembly, but great product. A lot of mumbling. A one point needed 2 people. Most of the time my wife stayed away from me. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great composter I've had this exact composter for more than 4 years. It's been out in the hot California sun and thru deluges of rain and is still in great shape. Assembly is tedious but not difficult, and once together the composter is easy to use and seems to compost well. My problem has been that, as I am constantly adding garden debris and kitchen scraps it never had a chance to completely compost. So I just bought composter #2 and it's looking to be a great system. I think by the time the second composter is full, the first will be pretty well composted (this is in northern California, so I don't have to contend with periods when it would be frozen). I think this model has been discontinued and the new ones are slightly smaller, but I don't see why they wouldn't work as well as this model. September 29, 2015
