Compost Tumbler: Original ComposTumbler
The Original ComposTumbler was developed nearly forty years ago and remains a fast and effective way to turn your kitchen waste into nutrient-rich compost for your garden. The dimensions of the ComposTumbler allow for the creation of a stable heat core at the center of composting materials to break them down in ten to fourteen days. Aerator and drainage units in the door along with screened endcaps allow air to flow in and out of the drum and excess moisture to escape, assisting in quick decomposition and the reduction of unpleasant odor. The drum holds up to eighteen bushels of compost, the largest capacity of the ComposTumbler models. Simply load the drum, spin the drum each day for two weeks, and add your new compost to your garden. Your ComposTumbler is guaranteed against any defects in the materials or workmanship for 5 years from the date of delivery. We will repair or replace any defective part (or the entire unit if necessary) at our expense. No IFs, ANDs or BUTs. This warranty is given to the original purchaser and is not transferable,nor does it apply to any damage caused by misuse or acts of nature. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which may vary from state to state. This product is made in the USA.

We will wait until spring 2011 to set up our new Compost Tumbler. We have owned one before when it was sold as "Kemper compost tumbler". It is convenient to fit the wheelbarrel under it for unloading. The screens do need clearing ocasionally. It composted great when the mixture was balanced with wet and dry and green matter. Eventually the barrel and fasteners and frame rusted out after about 7 years. We liked it enough to buy this one.
