Purchase this tumbler as a first timer to composting. Love it! Husband put it together and had no complaints. It is sturdy and the doors are easy to open and close. Was surprised it took about 2 1/2 weeks for my household to fill one side! This tumbler is BIG so I shocked myself. No big deal though since it has another side!
Easy Assembly - only trouble was I didn't have enough screws and I couldn't find an exact match at the hardware store. But I contacted the seller and got a prompt polite response and what I needed arrived in a week. In the meantime, I used the other side to get started - the side where all the panels were snugly attached. I expected a real assembly hassle from the scary reviews, but the pieces snap together before you have to add the screws. And the inner panel was pretty easy, too. Try it both ways before locking it in. It fits better one way with the 'teeth' of the circle fitting into the panel links. I actually didn't find the videos added any info, but I watched them before assembling. I counted everything first and had my screwdriver handy. I relied on the images in the booklet. Yes, there were unanswered questions, but pretty easy to figure out what works best. It did take me a few hours, but I did it on my own and took a few breaks - I didn't need extra help - and I'm a senior citizen - I'm not particularly handy or mechanical. So, if I can do it, I'm sure you'll be fine. All you need is a little patience.
I love the look and operation of the composter. To address some concerns I read about: I don't need a handle to turn the barrel. The baffles create easy places for a handhold. Also I read complaints of the small openings. I was concerned that the openings were as pictured with the panels slid halfway off. I didn't know until I opened the box that you can slide the panels all the way out. The full opening is as tall as one panel's width and as long as half the barrel. (See photos of the full opening) Not as big an opening as the open barrel I was using before, but it's functional. As to water dripping out, consider that you might not have the right mix of green to brown stuff. Not enough leaves or paper perhaps? Anyway, I've tried getting the barrel to leak and it wouldn't. It's pretty well sealed. I love the steam that greets me when I open it to check on it - showing it's working! It works much quicker than the open air model I used before. And I love having the second half available to start a new batch while waiting for the first one to finish.
A LOT of families are composting now and many models are out of stock. I did a lot of research and this one is highly rated. It is priced well above where it was priced before the pandemic. But I was so happy to find this model in stock; Lowe's is still out of them. And the price seemed pretty fair enough, especially when I realized assembly, although time-consuming, really wasn't difficult.
I'm very happy with this composter and bet you'll love it, too.
We use this composter each and every day. It stays outside in the Florida sun and rain and wind, so far it is holding up very nicely. No fading or cracking. I was scared the plastic wouldn��t hold up because of the harsh sunlight, but it has been at least 5 months now and still looks like the first day we put it to use. I would buy this product again.
So, the assembly directions aren't that detailed, I couldn't find a couple of parts and the video seems great but it jumps ahead expecting you to know how to attach sides to the door. I figured it out after a couple of missteps. Once I got started assembling it, it wasn't hard.
Asked my neighbor to assist with assembling due to the size. Instructions were very clear, and assembly went fast. The composter has been well used. So satisfying to spread the compost over my many gardens and let everything soak in over the winter and early spring. Will order another when the time comes.
