Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nellie Happy Tumbling
I read all of the reviews before purchasing this tumbler and my main concern was the difficulty to put together. However, I put together the entire compost tumbler (minus the drills into the metal on the legs) by myself, and I'm female, if that makes any difference.
The directions were easy to follow, and everything, except drilling screws into metal was easy.
As for the ease of use? Well, you just open it up, lock the lid, and then tumble a couple of times, and tada!
I really like how compact this tumbler is. It doesn't look weird in our backyard, and it is at the right height to empty into a wheelbarrow (I researched that aspect on a lot of other composters before purchasing this one).
This is definitely the composter I would recommend to my friends, and I have!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MrMike490 Where's the verbiage in the instructions?
I recently purchased the 50 gallon tumbler. Now I was raised where instructions explained, in detail, how to put an item together, and also with pictures. These instructions are a bunch of symbols...really?!! Do you realize how, at times, symbols, lose the entire meaning? If you buy one, go to a store that has one put together and it will be much clearer prior to putting yours together

Rated 5 out of 5Â by WDINANN EXCELLENT PRODUCT
A little difficult to assemble, however light and easy to move around. Fits easy in a corner and out of the way. Easy operation and works as prescribed.

Wasn't that bad to put together. Seems like it will withhold my Maine winter hopefully. I have only had it for 2 weeks but so far so good.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kansasguy Great product with cruddy instructions
The compost tumbler is great, but the other reviews mentioning difficulty with assembly are true. I read them and though, whatever I am sure it can't be that hard. There are no words in the instructions, so you have to pay attention to all the little details in the pictures. There are several steps where if you aren't paying attention to the way the parts are rotated, you could get yourself in trouble. With that said, once together it is great, works well, easy to open one handed and was a great value. I will likely buy another next christmas for my in-laws.
