Not sure what the complaints are about, this was easy as heck to put together. It durability and quality is shown while piecing it together.
I love that I can toss in my kitchen scraps from a well made meal into this sturdy flippin box, knowing in a few months the scraps will become soil for anorher magic dinner. I have been using it since Valentines Day, and already a month later it is looking and smelling like fruity delicious earth. ~A
Easy to assemble but center divider would be much better if it had right angle flanges and six more bolts.
It took some time to put the tumbler together, it was a team effort, and luckily we had the right tools. Once we got it down, the tumbler went together as per the direction. I have not used the tumbler yet, but it seems sturdy and turns very easily.
IĄŻve had the composter for about nine months and want to report on my experience. Sturdiness: it is holding up well, no problems with falling apart, leakage, turning. At present there is a good amount, 3/4 full, of materials and it is still pretty easy to turn. IĄŻm a 64 yo female with little upper body strength and itĄŻs still easy to turn.
Assembly: I look back on assembling the monster with tiredness. It would have been much easier if my husband had gotten off his rump and helped, but thatĄŻs never gonna happen, so if youĄŻre a lone person, know there are 60+ screws and parts to hold together at times when you need three or more hands. Nevertheless, itĄŻs held up well. (Good Job, Library Gaga!)
The real question is: does this thing make compost, and how fast? I have emptied it out once, and looking back I donĄŻt think my compost was ready yet. I put the compost around peonies and irises and I saw even then that it was all clumpy and I could still read pieces of newspaper in it. All this due to my not knowing how to make compost. This next batch is going to be ready before use. (Adding worm castings and biochar might speed things up.) all told, I thought I would be getting usable product more quickly than four months in. But I did not. The composter gets all day sun.
One gross-out: soldier fly maggots are nasty and shocking, and crawl out the small air holes and park themselves in handholds, so donĄŻt put your fingers in there without checking unless you arenĄŻt the squeamish type. IĄŻve read theyĄŻre normal and very useful, I try to get over it and suggest when you empty the hopper, just let it fall in a pile on the ground and your birds will thank you for the luscious gift. Pick up the compost and dispense afterward.
I just bought another composter with no assembly required, because I want to let this composter cook awhile, but I have kitchen and garden refuse that still needs to be recycled and I need to stop adding if I ever expect to make compost.
To conclude, I would not order another of these composters, only because of the assembly. BUT if you have two persons assembling, that should be no problem. IĄŻm fond of my easy-turning composter and hope you will consider this model.
As many reviewers have pointed out, the directions for assembling this are breathtakingly inadequate. Once I slogged through assembly, though, the unit has been excellent. It's now in its second winter and is quite sturdy.
