The assembly instructions and the packaging of the parts were simply the best we have encountered. Everything was labelled and pictured clearly making assembly very easy. The quality and workmanship in the construction of the bins is superb. It is very sturdy and will last a long time. I look forward to using the rotating barrel and never having to turn my compost again! </span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2016-04-24</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-04-24" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="140248853"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dual Compost Tumbler" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">2</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">srfnswm</span> from <span itemprop="name">Could&apos;ve been made better</span> <span itemprop="description">We have had our tumbler for 2+ years.

I like having 2 so you can start one and then work an another when that one is full so you can keep composting. I put i grass clippings, leaves, kitchen scraps and even a little dirt to keep it going. I found that oak leaves don&apos;t compost well so brake them up if you use them. I also found that keeping it moist made it work a lot faster. I would add water to it weekly if it got to dry and it would compost a lot faster. Setting it up was a bit of a chore but they are solid and work well. I have used them for a year and half and I got some really good compost. It does take time though. It took me about 6 months. If I had known to keep it moist I could have done it faster. It&apos;s been nice not to waste my grass clipping and kitchen scraps and leaves in the garbage. I&apos;m getting good soil and it&apos;s rewarding. </span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2016-02-17</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-02-17" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="138668733"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dual Compost Tumbler" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">NancyJ</span> from <span itemprop="name">Dual composter</span> <span itemprop="description">I purchased my first Lifetime Dual Composted last spring.

This is a must have product . </span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2016-02-08</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-02-08" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="132318511"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dual Compost Tumbler" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">Waipunalei</span> from <span itemprop="name">Piece of junk</span> <span itemprop="description">It took a full day to assemble, and then started rusting the moment I started loading compost materials into it. First both metal lid opening assemblies became very stiff and hard to operate, then the metal hinges on one lid started rusting away, and then broke so that the lid fell off, rendering that bin unusable. The hinges on the second lid are heading the same way. The dual-bin tumbler is a cool concept. Execution, not so much. </span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-10-25</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2015-10-25" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="127011011"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dual Compost Tumbler" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">LReissig</span> from <span itemprop="name">Poor Construction Ruins Excellent Design</span> <span itemprop="description">I really LOVED this composter...UNTIL the hinge mechanism holding the lid on to one of the containers rusted through and the lid fell off. Without a lid, the Dual Compost Tumbler does not tumble! We purchased the composter during the summer of 2013, so it was only two years old. The hinge mechanism appears to have rusted through. The composter was not exposed to water often, as Texas is drought-stricken. Nor was the lid stressed excessively, as it rested on a fence when it was opened. Now, the lid on the remaining container is almost impossible to open, I&apos;m guessing due to rust. This is a product that has great features and that should be getting uniform five star reviews, but I cannot give it anything but a one-star because cheap parts were used in the most critical places. </span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-08-31</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2015-08-31" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="120097851"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dual Compost Tumbler" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span></span> by <span itemprop="author">hunter sandy</span> from <span itemprop="name">nightmare to put together</span> <span itemprop="description">you need to partially or completely put this item together before selling it or include a specific installation video. it&apos;s a nightmare. we are ready to return it to costco.if you value your time this is not worth what you think you&apos;re saving buying it atcostco.
