  • Let's you reuse kitchen and garden waste in a responsible manner
  • Resulting compost supplies moisture and nutrients to plant life
  • Mixing bin requires minimal exertion to achieve desired results
Create your own compost and reduce landfill waste. With a Lifetime Composter you can easily reduce, reuse, and recycle kitchen and garden waste into a rich organic soil conditioner. Compost helps retain the moisture in your soil and adds rich nutrients for healthy plants. The Lifetime Composter is designed with black, double-walled panels to absorb and retain the heat that decomposes the material. An internal bar mixes the compost and allows the flow of oxygen that is necessary to break down the material into a rich, black organic fertilizer for your garden. Unlike compost bins and other tumbler-style composters, the lightweight 80 Gal. Tumbler easily turns on its axis for balanced rotation saving you the time and effort of turning a compost heap with a pitchfork. You'll also appreciate the locking pin that secures the tumbler and the extra-large removable lid for easy filling and dumping.
  • Center axis balance promotes easy rotation
  • Black double-walled panels are designed to absorb and retain heat
  • Aeration bar provides the right amount of oxygen necessary for material breakdown
  • Powder-coated steel frame provides a sturdy base for the large 80 Gal. bin
  • Galvanized steel feet prevent rusting and deterioration
  • Commercial-grade lid fasteners create a strong, airtight seal
  • Locking pin prevents unwanted rotation while loading and unloading the composter
  • Molded grips provide a firm hold during bin rotation
  • Backed by a 5-year limited manufacturer warranty

Questions & Answers

Does the 80gal. Compost tumbler have 3 doors or one door ?

Asked by: tpaulr
One door. It is essentially 3-sided, and two of the sides are screwed together, the third is held on by hinges and levered clamps. The "door" opens very wide and provides plenty of access space.

Typically, how long does it take to produce compost?

Asked by: gardenflower
Gardenflower, I think the mfg. says about 4-6 weeks. But, this all depends on what you put into the composter. Example: Lets say you put a 5gal. bucket of grass clipping, 25 sheets of paper and a 1 foot 2x4 in the composter and expect it to be compost in 4 to 6 weeks. It ain't gona happen. You'll have a bunch of dried up grass with 25 sheets of paper and a 2x4. Composting works best in Volume. If you take the same items in different form and volume, lets say 25 gals of grass clipping, 5 to 10 gals of shreaded paper and 1/2 a bucket of sawdust along with a shovel of good ole dirt. Put all of this in the composter and wet down, by the end of a week it should be heating up and decreasing in volume (composting) and the possiblity of compost in 4 to 6 weeks. Again, it work better in volume. With volume it is easier to control the moisture, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon levels which feeds the microbs. Time depends on each person and what they are composting. Typically for me, I keep adding to my composter for about 4 to 5 weeks (+ or -) until I get about 1/2 to 3/4 full on a steady basis and then start my 4 to 6 week composting. Hope this helps.

Does this product prevent animals from getting into it? Will it attract animals when filled with food scraps?
Asked by: Steve
The composted does have locks but you do not put any meat products or fat so animals will not bother it. Directions tell what to and not to put in.

80 Gal. Compost Tumbler is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 243.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Might work well -- have not evaluated that yet. But... Might work well -- have not evaluated that yet. But have assembled it! The entire assembly process was quite difficult. Instructions were poor, assembly requires several tools that do not come with it. Would be a great test for engaged couples to see if they really love each other pre-marriage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! Works well, no need to fork turn heavy compost pile.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The tumbler is very sturdy & attractive in the back... The tumbler is very sturdy & attractive in the back yard. It takes 2 people to hold the sides to put it together. It does not have pre-drilled holes to insert the side screws. Which I feel is a major flaw for the basic home owner. I believe once unlatched, there needs to be a small handle, something to use to open the lid. I am currently looking into a way to attach a small knob for lid accessibility. I love its 80 gallon size, black superb material & ease to turn. I look forward to using the tumbler for years to come.

The caveat is that it took my husband quite a long time--maybe four hours--to put it together. I had assumed that the holes were already screwed into it, but they weren't, so he had to drill all the holes from scratch. Beyond that, it is very sturdily built, the clasps keep it shut nicely, it opens and turns easily, and I can't see any way for rodents to get in. I've only had it for two months but so far it's perfect.

Pictures are not helpful I went to You Tube and there was a wonderful 3 part video that showed me exactly what to do...it was super amazing. I actually put it all together by myself. I have long arms so that made it possible with some stretching! The composter is top qualioty and I am more than half way to my first usuable compost for my garden.

Many holes for screws could have been easily drilled at factory itself. Many fixed fixers within the components also could have been fixed at factory assembly. Rotating the tumbler with load is very difficult and cumbersome. The groves provided in the tumbler for rotation is difficult to hold. I am yet to see how the mulch itself comes out finally.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Assembly of the Lifetime Compost Tumbler is a major project, not for the faint-of-heart or for so... Assembly of the Lifetime Compost Tumbler is a major project, not for the faint-of-heart or for somebody without significant DIY assembly skills. I had 2 problems: 1) UPS damaged the delivery of the box, causing loss of a bunch of fasteners requiring a call to Lifetime to secure a replacement batch of fasteners and 2) the assembly instructions were unclear, requiring a call to Lifetime. In both cases, Lifetime came through with relatively quick handling of my situation. However, the net result was *significant* delay in getting the composter assembled (it took over two weeks waiting for replacement parts and getting the assembly details clarified). Now that it's assembled (it's been in service about 3-4 weeks), the compost tumbler seems to work well (time will tell how good the composting is), but it's not the most attractive addition to our back yard. My recommendation of this product is with reservations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so easy to assemble, a monkey can do it. i read all of these reviews before i finally purchased this on sale at the end of the growing season. i was a bit worried that so many people were saying the directions were hard to follow and it was difficult to assemble by yourself. rather than blindly follow the pictographic instructions, i looked at all of the parts, looked at the instructions and decided by using 4 clamps i could hold the three main parts together and drill and assemble the main barrel all at once then add the legs as the last step. it took me about 20 minutes to build the whole thing. it spins like a champ, it's sturdy and well made and i'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
