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.

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

        Cons

        • Not raccoon-safe

        Best Uses

        • Kitchen Scraps
        • Leaves & Brush

        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...

            I was pleased to see that this composter was not too big. We are a 3 person household and did not need it to be any larger. It is easy to move about and the drum is easy to rotate. The directions were clear and easy to follow.

                The cover does not stay closed and the legs must be on a flat level surface to turn the drum. Garrdens tend not to be flat and level. I think the unit needs to be better made.

                  We installed our new composter under a shady tree in the back yard. After a couple of weeks, we have already noticed a drastic reduction in kitchen scraps that normally would have been put in the trash. We have not had any compost produced yet, but expect it to be quite rich when it's ready. I would recommend that any scraps be cut up into small pieces before throwing in. It will speed up the decomposition and give you a quick turnaround.
