Rather than wait for 1 batch of compost to finish preparing, you can start up your next batch in the adjacent tumbler. Each tumbler has a 50 gallon capacity and an aeration bar that helps the compost keep air in the ingredients to break them down properly. The double-walled, black polyethylene helps attract heat to assist in the breakdown of composting materials. Order your Composter here.

Looks great, small footprint, easy assembly
Lifetime Review - I'm a backyard gardener and understand the value in making your own compost. Rotating (or 'tumbling') composters are one of the best ways to make fast, nutrient-rich compost. I've tried a lot and have been most impressed with those made by Lifetime Products! I own their two other models and have been happy with them, but when I saw this double-unit I decided to swap out my tried-and-true singles for this one double. Assembly was much easier and faster than the previous two models (which weren't that difficult to begin with). It took my 11-year-old daughter and I about two-hours to put both together. I love the one-handed operation which makes these much easier to open and close, and they spin very smoothly. The cantilevered design gives you easy access to put your wheelbarrow under them and dump your compost right into it. Talk about well-thought-out!And they look good, too!

I am a Master Compost Instructor
Lifetime Review - . . . for Clallam County in Washington State. When it comes to composters, whether store bought or hand built, I've seen them all. But of all of them, I tip my hat to this one. I was out buying the parts to build a new drum composter - a plastic 45gal barrel and some aluminum - but the moment I saw this one, I was sold! In fact, the money I spent wouldn't even pay for the parts of the one I was about to build. More importantly, this one has indestructible construction (extremely important when dealing with nematodes and other microbes breaking down organic matter into compost), a powder-coated base, and the multi-position drum locking system is a breeze to fill and empty! It's also the perfect size for the average residential home. Best of all, . . . . . it's incredibly easy!For best results, mix 50% brown with 50% green, then tumble it for a minute or two. Within a day or two (depending on the ambient temperature), the mixture will begin to generate heat. Encouraged by this units double-wall construction, this is what you want, . . . . SO LEAVE IT ALONE! Once the temperature has subsided, spin the drum for a minute to remix the ingredients. Again, it will begin to generate heat. For best results, do this procedure 3 or 4 times, until it no longer generates heat. It is now ready to use. One last comment about compost. The goal of composting is not to make compost, but to create an environment that generates and encourages microbial habitat; these are the little guys that continue to break down organic matter into the building blocks that feed your plants long after you have spread the compost on your garden or lawn. Like you, nematodes need air and water to survive, so dry soil is dead soil

Great Engineering Design!
Lifetime Review - I enjoyed putting the composter together with my girlfriend. It definitely helps to have two people to put the product together. It took us about 7 hours. It was not a continuous 7 hours, but the construction took place over a period of a week. I am legally blind so there was an excuse not to get it done in 2 hours. I have it setting outside and it is already loaded with composting material. Thanks for the product. My girlfriend was excited due to the fact we did not have any parts left over.

Impressive construction
Lifetime Review - Picked this up last weekend and was totally impressed. My old composter was all plastic and collapsed under its own weight. This unit is built to last and sturdily constructed. The internal venting system should work well and it tumbles easily to mix the compost well. Told everyone at work about it and a couple of them are considering purchasing one as well.

Love this composter!!
We LOVE this composter! It took my husband and me a couple of hours to put it together with only a few glitches. Some of the Joint seams can be very tight; ;which is probably a good thing. The unit has a small footprint compared to other composting methods I have used and it is easy to work. No more attempting to turn the compost with the old pitch fork. The composting instruction CD is also very helpful. We loved this unit so much that this is the second unit for us. The first one stayed with our house when it was sold; the buyers were so impressed with the composter that they insisted it be a part of the sale.

Easy to assemble and waiting for my first batch!
Lifetime Review - This took me 3-4 hours to put together - I was at a slow pace on a hot summer day. The instructions were easy to follow. Per other reviews, I did assemble the base on site of its final home. I can see how moving it would be difficult. I have noticed some rust appearing on one end at the aeration bar so will need to contact Customer Service. I'm a SWF who enjoys small scale gardening and do-it yourself project. I thoroughly enjoyed assembling this product and recommend it!

NIGHTMARE to Assemble!
This is a NIGHTMARE to Assemble. I have put together many products in the past but this one was the worst! Don't let the photos of the finished product fool you. This thing is a pain to put together

Love it ...but...
I have had this almost 2 years now and I love almost everything about it. It seems like the two bins need a spacer between them. The bin on the right will slide in towards the other bin when I rotate it and I have to push it back in to place in order for the pin to catch it in place. This is a pain, especially when you rotate wet compost that leaks out. If I could find a pre-made spacer for between the two bins, we would be happily rolling smooth! :)

A: Would it not be 100 gallon since it states 2 fifty gallons tumblers

Answer provided by:  Carol (4/27/2016)
A:  100 gallons in total, but not designed to be ready at the same time, one 50 gallon is processing while the other is for new material. So perhaps only 50 available at a time. That may be why it is 50 gallon PER CONTAINER.
