    I looked at several Compost Tumblers and read several reviews on the internet. After picking the Lifetime unit I was anxious to receive it and see if I made the right choice. I DID! The unit arrived quickly and was well packaged. I laid out all the components and fasteners and read through the instructdion book and started putting the unit together. The Lifetime Compost Tumbler is very well designed and all pieces fit perfectly. I needed a little help from my wife to put the unit together and in a little over an hour we were ready to start adding material. I followed the startup instructions and had a temperature increase in the material within 24 hours. We are now on our 5th day and can see we are on our way to fresh compost for our garden in a short time. I am happy with my choice in every respect and am already thinking of purchasing another unit.

        Great Compost Tumbler

            Comments about All Other Brands|Lifetime Lifetime 80 Gallon Compost Tumbler:

            I purchased this compost tumbler about a year and a half ago and have been extremely happy with it. I purchased it mainly because of its size, and I wanted something that critters would not get into. It fits the bill. Even when I have it very full I can still spin it with a bit of effort. This compost tumbler was a little tedious to assemble because there are so many screws, but with two people and power tools it was not a big deal, and the results are more than worth the effort, it is extremely sturdy!
            When I was researching compost tumblers I was also looking at the ones with dual chambers, but couldn't find any of comparable size and price to this one. Now Hayneedle sells Item #LIF169 - Lifetime Dual 50 Gallon Composter, I think I would purchase that one instead if I were going to buy one now, but only because sometimes it would be nice to be able to have one chanber to keep adding compost to while the other chamber is full of nearly-finished compost.

            The purchaser either needs to possess engineering skills, or have a partner who does. If the parts were numbered, assembly may have been easier? Managed to finally put it together after 2 hours!!!!! Have beer waiting after assembly is accomplished:) Nice product otherwise.

                I don't recall the add saying assembly required. However, full assembly is required. I am a single female and did not have all the appropriate tools and it really took two people to assemble it correctly. Thank goodness I have an awesome neighbor who came over to help me otherwise I don't know what I would have done. The assembly was not that easy for the average person and two people are required. The picture directions were very difficult to follow. The container itself is fine now that it's put together.

                      The compost tumbler is a generally well made product that appears to be sturdy. The instructions to construct the product require someone with decent skills. The two primary bolts on which the device rotates were not properly manufactured and had a "lip" at the end of the threads which would not allow the bolts to fully extend into the frame. I had to grind down the "lip" with a Dremel tool and then the bolts fit perfectly. Also, some of the screws to put the second and third panels together require two people because of the length of the distance to reach the screws.
