The composter is not bear proof. It's made of plastic. Anything bear proof will need to be constructed of steel.

It's really easy to open. The oblong door slides back and forth in a track and I've never had a moment's difficulty with it.

Do the doors freeze shut?

Asked by Dm June 3, 2020
2
Answers

Yes every winter the door freezes shut ( I would say below 25 F); I usually bang it with my fist and it cracks the ice. I think I was too zealous this year and cracked the door in half, but it is actually easier to use that way !

How does this hold up to raccoons? Can they get in?

Asked by LW May 28, 2020
3
Answers

I doubt that a raccoon could get in as it would have to sit on the very thing it's trying to move, as long as you positioned the door on the top.

Is the rod that runs through the 2 chambers inside coated or is it exposed metal? And what kind o...

Asked by be May 22, 2020

The metal rod is not exposed inside the chamber. There is a plastic tube that it passes through.

difficult to put together
This is most difficult thing I have ever put together, and I have put a lot of stuff toghter. It is not for the faint of heart. It is best to use two persons. One most rely on sense of feel to put the nuts and bolts together, because you can’t see what you are doing. I haven’t used it yet, but you can bet I will. Not going to let 4 hours of work go to waste. I am experienced composter.

It was a project to put it together but the online video was an excellent guide and it required a few tools and an occasional extra set of hands. It’s a great size for first time composting, sturdy and easy to maintain.

Nice Composting bill
It's a nice composting bin with 2 independent chambers. I find it a little bit small for my garden; one side got almost full with flowers of 3- 4 hydrangea plants, but I would still recommend it. For kitchen scraps it's more than enough. An advantage about the size is that if you are not a strong person, it's really easy o turn, compared to larger bins (from my experience). You need a little experience to be able to assemble it, but it's not impossible.

I have had this product for about a month. So far I am impressed. It was a little difficult to assemble. Lots and lots of screws. Also the instructions aren't completely clear about lining up the vents on both sides evenly or your pieces won't fit. Then you have to disassemble the entire thing.

Easy to assembly and durable - had it for a few months in the elements. Will purchase a second one. The only improvements would be some type of auger blade on inside to help breakup the clumps and the legs to be another 1ft off ground to allow for a proper size bin to fit underneath when dumping finished compost.

Easy to assemble, took a little bit of time because of all the screws, but if you can turn screws you can put this together no problem. Seems pretty durable, think it will last a good long while!

Just the Beginning of a Healthier New Year

I’m a Vegetarian and tired of recalls on Salads & Vegetables so I have decided I will grow my own. FCMP Tumbling Compost Dual Door Chambers is the beginning of a safe & healthy garden. I have read many reviews prior to making this purchase. As far as assembly I am a 58 year old women and assembled this beast by myself. I enjoyed the process however had to follow a video only to start. All of pieces are engraved with letters (aa, bb, dd) into each piece. There allot of nuts & screws. If you have extra you missed a place lol. I first assembled as instructed then went back to tighten each screw to find I missed 3-4. Affordable price & Nicely made, Good height & durability allows table scrapes to be tossed Then converted into healthy soil. I first tried composting in a large garbage can Yuck but smelling like rotten food each time I rotated got old real quick. Living in a rural area digging a hole would attract rats and raccoons. I feel FCMP is the perfect , smart, convenient and affordable choice

I have had it for about two weeks and seems to be serving the purpose. It came on time and in perfect condition. It has a lot of screws for assembly but it went together easily. I will buy another one for this price when it's needed.
