Finally took the time to put my new composter together. There were many screws and although the directions weren't too difficult; they could have been a little more specific. Each side panel has 2 screws on each end and 3 along the length to hold the panel to the previous one; it would have been helpful to add that all screws for each panel be secured before moving on to the next panel. Also a caution about making sure that each panel is tipped a bit to make sure that the interlocking projection fits correctly before screwing in; I had to take some of mine apart and reassemble because I didn't put the 3 length screws in as I added each panel. That is when I discovered that the interlocking part didn't fit correctly. Also suggesting that the first panel not be tightened all the way until after the door panel is fitted into place.
I'm hoping that the turning action of the composter produces good results. My old one which seems to be made of similar material has really just become a holding bin because I can't mix the ingredients.

I gave this 3 stars as I just assembled it yesterday and have not had a chance to make compost in it. It holds a lot more than I initially thought it would by looking at the pieces laying in the box. I filled one side about half full with compost from my old bin and was able to "tumble" it with ease. The box it came in was damaged upon arrival but all of the parts were fine and there.

      Just got this composter to replace a stationary one. Love the fact that it turns. Should be perfect for our yard size. I do plan on spraying the legs with rustoleum clear.

          I just received my Yimby compost tumbler. Couldn't be happier. Perfect size for two people. Easy to assemble.

          It is my goal to only have recyclables at the curb! With this compost tumbler that goal will be realized.

            This compost bin comes with many parts and bolts but no instructions on how to put it together. You need two people to get it done. It took me over two hrs to try to figure out how to put it together and I still don't have it completed. Very disappointed that they don't have any clear instructions.

              I just recently purchased my new composter and so far I really enjoy it. The set up took about 20 minutes and it was extremely easy. There is plenty of space for lots of food. The design is simple but very effective.

                    We bought this compost tumbler to replace a compost bin we bought several years ago. The bin was much to large for the amount of material two people produce and having to turn the material with a shovel was getting old. This two bin system that just needs turning every other day is wonderful! We can hardly wait for the two weeks, indicated in the instructions, that it takes to produce the compost. If tnis system does in fact generate compost that quickly I will truly be impressed!

                      Easy enough to assemble. I love that it has 2 compartments, so one side can "cook" while you add to the other side. I was previously using a bin that I had to stir with a shovel (which I never did), so I'm very happy to have this new composter that I can just spin to stir.

                        We live in tropical Florida, so it never freezes and bugs never die. I needed to compost without the outdoor pile, to keep the small (?) rodents away and the bugs at a minimum. When I googled composting bins, there you were. Thanks.

                        Q: "Does this composter have a way for moisture to escape?"
                        A: There are adjustable vents in the side of each body panel which can be either closed or open to allow the moisture to evaporate. Additionally each panel has a number of slots which will allow the tea to drip out the bottom. There are enough of these sl

                        A: Do your part to save the planet with the handy composter. The compost process is a little messy. There may be some odor but there shouldn’t be too much. The instruction booklet has some troubleshooting regarding odors. Basically any odor is caused by an imbalance in the high nitrogen “wet green” clippings versus the high carbon “dry brown” clippings. If the mix is wet and stinky there are too many fresh wet green clippings and not enough dry browns to soak up the moisture. If dry browns are not available adding a few scoops of dry dirt will also soak up the moisture and fix the smell.
