Questions & Answers

How long does it take to become well-done compost?

Lifetime Dual Bin Compost Tumbler, 100 gal. capacity. Model # 60072
Asked by: Yosemite1
The warmer the outside air temperature the faster it composts. Putting your composter in a location that gets all day full sun is much better than a shaded location. Even during our mild Northern California bay area winter, the composting process slows to a crawl taking a couple of months to produce a batch. Try to fill it no more the 3/4's otherwise the contents won't turn over, breathe and compost as efficiently as they should. You'll be tempted to "top it off" when you see how much the contents shrink during the composting process. Doing this will add another couple of weeks to a month to finish the batch.

How high do you fill it? Can I cover the aration bar?

Asked by: littlelulu
I filled it just to the aeration bar, it holds quite a bit of material. If you add much more than that it becomes hard to turn the barrel.

What kinds of things do you put in to be composted

Asked by: Deb
I use it as a mixer/storage container. I put black potting soil, Black Kow manure, and Peat. I do throw in grass clippings or any veggies I picked too late.

Is there a tea collector? or an option for one?

Asked by: Audra
I used two medium concrete mixing tubs from Home Depot 27.5" x 20". Placed end to end under dual composter works very well.

100 Gal. Dual Bin Compost Tumbler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from can't use 1 of the 2 composters I have only had the Lifetime dual composter 50 Gallon for about 2 years now and it has done a pretty good job of making compost for the garden. However the latching mechanism on the left side which is the most used side has rusted so bad that we do not use it because we cannot open it. Also one of the corner pieces popped out at some point and was not noticed immediately to be replaced so there is about a 2" hole on the corner where the compost falls out when we tumble the compost. Also be careful if you need to move the unit for any reason, the plastic feet will pop off and get lost if you do not see it happen, we have lost 3 of them so far, thinking that we may just take the last one off so they match. We have one of the 80gal units also and have no issues with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent customer service My wife has had a double and a single composter for about four years and has been extremely satisfied with both of them. She has recommended them to friends who show interest in gardening. Recently, the hinge one of the double bins broke. All I was inquiring about was purchasing a replacement hinge. Lifetime sent me a replacement without charge. This rates as superior service in my book. Thank you Lifetime.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked it while it lasted I have had my composter for 4+ years. It did take a long time to assemble. My pins to hold the barrels in place broke pretty shortly after we purchased it. All of the metal inside of the barrels began rusting shortly after we started using it. When it rains water gets inside of the lid, so when you tumble it you can hear water sloshing around inside of it. The closing mechanism has always been stiff but has been functional and served it's purpose, until today. One of the bars of the latch snapped off when I tried to turn it. It has composted a lot of soil over the last few years, but I don't think I will purchase this model again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Service Bought the Dual Compost Tumbler a long time ago, maybe 5 years. Love it. Taken pretty good care of it by cleaning the rusty locking mechanism every 6 mos or so. Was a little disappointed they weren't more rust resistant. Anyway, finally rusted shut and since they work great for us otherwise, I called to see if I could buy replacement parts. Talked to Luke in customer service who quickly volunteered to ship them for free. He did this without me complaining, threatening, whining or anything. The company stands by its products, hires terrific associates who deliver amazing customer service. Many thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great design but need galvanized metal fir inside tumbler I bought this 2-3 years ago from BJs and has definitely made composting easier and neater. Over time the corners have fallen out and the hardware inside the tumbler has rusted together. I was able to lubricate the hardware in one barrel with WD40 but the other is rusted solid and handle will not turn so lid can't latch closed. Customer service ordered new hardware which is backordered so it seems many are having same problem. Hopefully next time they will consider using galvanized metal for parts that are exposed to moisture for extended periods.
