Asked by Dianne May 23, 2021

Answers

You can probably get a replacement from the manufacturer, but it would be a lot quicker to go to HD (or any hardware store, actually) with the bent screw and ask the folks in hardware to match the threads, length and diameter of the screw/bolt. Take the nut with you to make sure it matches with the new screw/bolt. It won't cost much and you will be done. Waiting for a manufacturer to respond to a request for a missing part can take a lot of time. If you can't get a match locally, you may need to deal with the manufacturer. You can contact them at https://fcmponline.com/pages/contact.

once you no longer need composter is it recyclable?

Asked by irwin May 12, 2021

Answer

Yes, the plastic is recyclable. The composter panels are made from polypropylene which is resin ID # 5. Polypropylene plastic is the same resin that sour cream and yoghurt containers are made from. This plastic is recyclable in most curbside programs.

Can the lid be purchased separately?

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.

Easy-peasy Had two units done by lunch. One is a Birthday Surpresent. Yes, I made that word up. (Surprise & Present) 35 minutes on the 1st one. 25 minutes on the 2nd. Don't over tighten the panel bolts. No need to put a 3/8 wrench on the inside LOCK nuts. They tighten without using the wrench. Use a ratchet and square head. A drill is too strong and you will strip the bolt head. Put the sliding door on last. Instructions are not great ... but as a guy ... we only look at the pictures anyhow. Easy-peasy

This is exactly what I needed. I picked this one because of the two chambers; I have a small space, and this way I can let some compost mature while still adding items to the second chamber. It was super easy to put together; many reviewers had trouble, but in reality, it was straightforward. Having a second set of hands made it easier to hold while tightening screws. It fits in my yard well, the opening is big enough for easily adding items, and the paddles inside ensure that plenty of aeration happens when it turns. I don't find turning it difficult, either. A great investment in my new compost adventures!

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
