Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snicker Composer review
Somewhat easy to assemble. We are concerned about the durability of the release handle when tumbling the contents in the composter. We are also concerned about the stand being strong enough to hold a full composter. Will have a better idea about a rating at end of summer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SG Waste of $$
This should come with atleast a 1yr warranty! Within 4 months of use the bolt broke off the side where barrel connects to posts which made it useless! Since warranty was void I was left no choice but to break bin completely off the posts thinking I could roll on ground myself!! As you can imagine, this did not work! Next time I will do a lot more research on which one is best for my needs as (like most) $100 is a huge amount of money for me and doesn't come very often that I have to spend on anything extra (other than basics for a mom with 2 small children)

The screws that hold it together broke, hard to keep stationary enough to rotate. don't buy this product , it is a waste of money.

This thing seemed great at first, easy to rotate and turn the compost. To be fair it last us about two years but then the plastic started to beak down causing the bottom lid to sag, and shortly after the plastic around the metal axle gave in and the whole side tore open within a week. Go simple with less moving parts if you care about your composter's longevity.

First the screws that hold the middle bar bent and broke off. Fixed that. Then the bar that the composter spins around rusted through. Can't order spare parts from Suncast's website. Living in Arizona I thought the plastic tumbler would be the first to go. Garbage, get something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NicoleT Super fast composter
i bought about two months ago and already have a ton of compost. It was kinda trick to put together but was able to do it in an hour or so. The compost bin is easy to spin and load with material. The only thing I wish it had was a door to open that had a screen so I do not have to sift the soul later. But for the money it works great

This was a total waste of money. In less than month after I bought it, I started having difficulty with the turning mechanism. I repaired it but in less then 6 months, the barrel could not be turned at all because the metal parts had completely broken. It ended up in the landfill. There is no way I would recommend that anyone buy this piece of junk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NoviceGardener Works well!
We've had this for a month and we just turned out our first barrel of rich compost! Not to hard to put together maybe 45 minutes with the right tools and my 3 year old to help. I was a little concerned with the durability, but as long as I don't abruptly lock the barrel while it is rotating it seems to be holding up nicely. Rotating the barrel does take a little strength when full, but my 5'2" small frame wife is able to rotate it once she figured out how to use her leverage. So far so good. I rated a 4 because of the fear it will not last forever. I'd also suggest getting 2 because once full you don't want to add new waste to it.
