PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # 035564-01CGR

Internet # 203915878

The Toter 64 gal. composter with continuous flow is a complete composting kit with kitchen countertop unit designed for home use. It’s the only composter with a rugged 2-wheeled outdoor unit and a unique internal chimney to aerate compost from the inside. Additional vent holes throughout the container increase air flow to further promote the composting process. Since the Toter composter is wheeled, users can move it around seasonally to capture the warmth of the sun, creating an exceptionally effective composting system. The composter is easy to maneuver over any terrain. Simply tilt and roll it to where compost is needed. Unload finished compost using the door at the bottom of the container.

  • Fully assembled unit is ready to use with everything you need to start composting
  • Includes kitchen countertop container for clean, easy transport of material to the outdoor unit
  • Unlike batch-fed units, the Toter composter is a continuous feed system that ensures you will have compost available when you need it
  • As it composts, finished material falls through the loading chamber and into the holding chamber below, by simply turning the brush handle, you will help promote this process and keep the mature compost separated from newly added organic materials
  • Manufactured with up to 50% recycled content
  • Wood slat design blends with outdoor surroundings
  • Attached lid features a latch to deter animals from gaining access

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is wonderful! This is a very sturdy and durable composter. I like it for two main reasons: I can continuously compost - can get finished compost from the bottom while still feeding it from the top. My favorite feature are the wheels. My yard is a slope with a lot of uneven, bumpy ground - yet I can wheel this composter to wherever I need it in the yard with no trouble. The folks who designed this really did their homework! Don't waste your money on a cheaper one. April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Relucant Composter says: worth the bucks! I've been skeptical about backyard composting for a while, having lived for a long time in a city with rats in the alley! I am now living in a more suburban area, but my old reluctance has kept me from getting going on composting, even though I knew it would be helpful to my garden and good for environmental sustainability overall. I took a chance this year on this Toter composter and I am glad I did. It's pricey but extremely beginner friendly, safe, and unassuming (it looks exactly like a garbage can: the squirrels are none the wiser!). I chose this model because it is rugged and enclosed and I felt confident that animals would not get into the kitchen scraps I threw in. But it has many more pluses. It includes everything you need from the get go, including a very nice kitchen container and good instructions. I love the overall construction, the wheels, the internal mechanism, the size, the lower bin--I really have no complaints at all. This is a really smart set up. Some tips: 1. Home Depot shipped to store and it did not fit (in the box) in my sedan, so I asked a neighbor with a truck to help pick it up. It is possible that if you took it out of the box, it would fit in a large sedan back seat (I have a medium sized Ford Focus). 2. There are good clear instructions right on the inside of the lid, but I was a little confused about the internal turning mechanism. When I read about composting in books or on the web, it says to turn after a few weeks. The directions here clearly state to turn the internal mechanism after SIX weeks. Why? Because these are two different kinds of turning. The user has to "turn" the compost every few weeks to aerate it, usually with a pitchfork (true of any compost pile, not just the toter). The internal mechanism is NOT for this kind of turning. When the internal doo-hickey is turned, it will "process" the compost at the bottom layers into the lower bin. So be sure NOT to turn the internal mechanism until the compost is ready to come out the bottom. But DO turn with a pitchfork more often to get it ready. 3. The directions don't state this quite so clearly but as you build your layers of carbon and nitrogen, you should wet down each finished layer to make it moist (as opposed to building it up and then adding water at the top of many layers). You can also add a starter or activator or just some dirt from your garden to get it going. My layers are: 2 parts brown (carbon), 1 part green (nitrogen), some Jobe's organic starter, some water (then repeat). 4. Finally, consider drilling a hole in the bottom of the bin for drainage. There is a marked place on the bottom but the hole is DYI. I hope this review helps the Relucant Composter. Signed: FRC (the formerly reluctant composter) May 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by sturdy very sturdy bin with nice big wheels. also has good clasp on top that only someone with opposable thumbs can open. it also has a loop for a lock. superficial scratches. negatives - 1) no instruction booklet - instructions are on box. can find instructions on manufacturer's website. 2) turning mechanism at top in middle is to move the finished compost to the bottom door where you shovel out the compost. Unfortunately this is in the way of a shovel or other tool that you would use to aerate/turn the compost. comes fully assembled out of the box, 3) except you have to drill the drainage hole at the bottom yourself. this is annoying. also this will not fit into a 4 door sedan. must have suv or truck. comes with kitchen bin which is smart. it has been easy toting it outside and then washing it out in the kitchen sink.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Holds a lot of waste I have had this composter since early summer and it is now mid-December. We got it to replace a tumbler batch composter that fell apart on us. This unit has far more space than the tumbler type. It has readily taken all of my vegetable garden debris, our kitchen scraps, and a fair amount of mulched leaves. However, I have not yet gotten any compost to come out of the bottom. I did not read the reviews that said to drill a hole in the bottom-a good suggestion as liquid does accumulate. The reason that I remembered to write a review was that as I was depositing kitchen scraps in it today a little MOUSE jumped out the top at me. In all fairness the lid was slightly ajar from a twig as I hastily filled it with leaves-however I have never had mice in my old unit. My other concern is that the turner isn't really as I imagined it, it only rotates a little brush at the bottom that is supposed to release compost. It doesn't have any aerator wings or anything that turns the compost so if you want to do it you have to do it manually which is quite difficult due to the turner column being in the middle of the unit. Overall I like the appearance, the wheels, the capacity, and the handy kitchen bucket, but it is far from a fabulous composter December 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by An innovative way to be "Green" A truly unique approach to composting. Continuous composting versus batch processing a huge plus. An easy instruction label in the lid for effective recipes. The wheels allow for easy transporting of compost to beds throughout the yard. No assembly required! Appears to have the same rugged construction as the legendary Toter cart. March 19, 2013
