Description

Why spend money on expensive fertilizers when you can create your own composting and reduce landfill waste as well? With a Lifetime Compost Tumbler you can easily reduce, reuse, and recycle kitchen and garden waste into a rich organic soil conditioner. Compost helps retain the moisture in your soil and adds rich nutrients for healthy plants. The Lifetime Compost Tumbler is designed with black, double-walled panels to absorb and retain the heat that decomposes the material. An internal aeration bar allows the flow of oxygen that is necessary to break down the material into a rich, black organic fertilizer for your garden. The lightweight 80 gallon compost tumbler easily turns on its axis for balanced rotation—saving you the time and effort of turning a compost heap with a pitchfork! The non-cylindrical design of the tumblers allows for more effective mixing of contents when rotated. You’ll also appreciate the extra-large removable lid for easy filling and dumping. This composter has many advantages over an open compost heap. It contains unsightly scraps and their accompanying odors in an enclosed container that is inaccessible to pesky rodents and will not attract insects. This product does not contain BPA.

For more information on composting including what kinds of materials should and should not be composted, read our Garden Composting article as well as our How To Compost instructions. We also have a How To Compost video with helpful hints and how to's.

Reviews

Compost Tumbler (80 gallon) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifetime 60058 Compost Tumbler Black 80 Gallon We bought this model at the Chelsea Flower Show this summer - 2014. Compost decomposed faster than the plastic bin type we have also used, main advantage being that decomposition was much more even and faster, however we are not sure how much to fill it - up to what level does it cease to work as well? Do you put water in it? Compost only went moist [useable] this week November 2014 [6 months]. You have to introduce worms [preferably worms that are ready for turning or they become giddy when rotated!] It would be a good idea to issue instructions / advice on this website [video] or provided with the product when it arrives.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Subject to rust - especially in Hawai I bought two of these about 3 years ago. they work as advertised and I have produced a TON of compost. The only problem I've had is RUST! Within the first few months I saw rust in several of the metal parts. I tried using 'rust inhibitors' to no avail. Today I have several places rusted through and have concocted ways to make them still work for me. Will be trying to get parts soon.. As a point of record, the warranty EXCLUDES rust - perhaps they KNEW this might be a problem?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid I have been composting for a very long time. I have tried everything. This has all of the features that make a composter work perfectly. It eats compost fast and completely. Easy to empty, easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for HOA's Our HOA does not allow compost piles so this product allows me to compost my kitchen scraps etc. It works well, but gets too wet when it rains heavily. I need a cover for it but can't find one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I called for replacement hinges due to corrosion due to ocean air This has been a wonderful tumbler. I called for replacement parts a few weeks before and some arrived but the order was incomplete and a part defective. I called today and talked to Craig who listened well and had great communication skills. He ordered me the parts I need. I am encouraged and feel the order will be perfect. Thank you Craig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SERVICE Upon receiving my compost tumbler, I notice a loose part on the driveway. Then on opening the package I found additional loose parts. After attempting to assemble my purchase I realized that a couple of pieces were missing. I called the service number and was promptly set up and shipped the missing parts. Just awesome service, thanks again!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shipping Damage Resolved UPS tore up the box but the composter was totally fine. There was some missing hardware but Caleb got a replacement order placed for me, at no charge, and from start to finish the call took less than 5 minutes! That is customer service that I would be proud to have at my own company!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still compost after all these years I got this composter three years ago. It was not the first composter unit I bought, but it was the last!It's still working for me, and when I remember to go tumble regularly, makes compost pretty quickly. When I don't remember, it's still working for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Composter We had an incredible garden this year. We composted using food scraps and yard trimmings. The composter is easy to use both in filling and emptying the container. I highly recommend this product for the home gardener.

Ask a Question

I have one of these and somehow water has collected and been caught in the composter walls, for lack of a better word. There is a few gallons of water slushing around inside the pieces that I can't get rid of or figure out how it got in there! Any advice?

I live in an area with a lot of black bears. Do you have any experience with how this composter will hold up from bears? I would love to compost but do not want to have a continual attraction for bear as I also have small animals I want to protect.

Asked by: Karen
Unfortunately we do not have any information to provide regarding how well our composter would hold up to a bear.
