    The tumbler action with the sorter/strainer is a great idea but could be improved if there was a screen on the slot that receives composted material so that miscellaneous debris does not reach the exit point. I find that I still have to screen the compost as it exits the machine.

    I did a lot of research before buying this product. The inner drum feature determined the purchase decision, as it allows for an ongoing composting cycle. The assembly is easy [...] While it has exactly the same dimensions as the broken part, it does not latch properly. So I wonder whether that may be a general design problem. - Now it can be easily slid open, which might give access to raccoons. - Just started the composting, so cannot comment on how good and quick that works.

    Fresh garbage in the mulch

    By Twin tumblers now

      Comments about Sun-Mar 200 Autoflow 55 Gallon Compost Tumbler:

      Relying on their manual, I tried to make this product work as it is advertised for a year and a half. I was never able to harvest mulch that did not have fresh garbage in it. The design of the of the separating system is very very simple and appears to only separate the material by size, as apposed to whether it is composted or not. Additionally, no matter how moist the mixture was inside the drum, what came out of the tube were very hard and dry balls; the result, I think, of the time it took the material to travel the length of the inner tube. I scraped my knuckles several times trying to open and close the poorly fitting lid. Before it was a year old, it began to lean to one side, and at a year and a half it completely collapsed. [...] I really wanted this thing to work, but I don't think you can do all of your composting with one tumbler, certainly not this one.

        Beware of the raccoons

        By Jane S.

        from Connecticut

        About Me Avid Gardener

        Pros

        • Easy to turn

        Comments about Sun-Mar 200 Autoflow 55 Gallon Compost Tumbler:

        This is our second composter of this model. The first one tilted off its frame when it got heavy and it warped the frame permanently, so the company replaced it. Now that it's winter, the raccoons are hungrier, so they've pried the lid completely off the unit twice. We gave up composting for winter--it's just too gross to clean up rotting food all over the yard, courtesy of the raccoons. We'll try again in spring when we can bury the food under the grass clippings to mask the scent. We never had problems with this composter in the warmer seasons.

          My only issue with this product was that it was ordered as a Christmas gift and when it arrived, there was a picture on the outside of the box showing what the gift was to the person I was giving it to.
          Other than the surprise factor being eliminated, it is perfect!

          After we used a razor knife and hairdryer to get the bearing cap to fit, all else was a breeze. We have only just started collecting our waste, so the finished product is as yet unknown, but the idea is sound, the construction seems simple and sturdy, and it will be so much easier than turning a pile of stuff with a shovel...
