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.

Comments about Forest City Yimby Compost Tumbler with Two Chambers:

The dual chamber is perfect. Separating the completed batch of compost from the compost in progress makes this an ever-green recycling solution. I have a kitchen compost pail and transfer its contents to my Yimby once a week. I'm very happy to reduce waste and build the soil in my garden.

    Comments about Forest City Yimby Compost Tumbler with Two Chambers:

    I've tried to diligently add all my kitchen scraps and some leaves, coffee grinds, etc. and this thing just won't produce anything more than yucky, unbroken-down muck. I see egg shells in there that have been there forever and its just not doing anything. I have moved it to the sun, on the side of my driveway, and it leeches out black liquid onto my driveway and flies are all over it. It stinks, in every sense of the word. I am giving it a final chance this year and chucking it otherwise. It took awhile to assemble and was not cheap so I am quite disappointed. I wrote Hayneedle with my concern but they were not helpful at all.

    Comments about Forest City Yimby Compost Tumbler with Two Chambers:

    In less than a year later the plastic sleeve that connects the bin to the metal stand cracked and doesn't allow turning. We haven't overloaded the bin; the product is simply under-designed.

    It looks good, but save yourself the trouble and money.

      I purchased this as a supplemental composter to my primary which was inaccessible in the winter snow. It made composting easy and convenient. Not sure why people are saying it was difficult to put together. I had no problem.
