    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.

    Comments about Lifetime 80 Gallon Compost Tumbler:

    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.

        Comments about Lifetime 80 Gallon Compost Tumbler:

        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.

          Looks sturdy for what we need it for. Also like the wide mouth bin to easily get out composted soil.

              Comments about Lifetime 80 Gallon Compost Tumbler:

              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.
