Good for fine quality compost By Anonymous 5 24th February 2009

Bear in mind that you need a very balanced well composted mix for this to work. If your material is very twiggy or not shredded it will be a long time before it is fit for sifting. Similarly if your mix is wet and unbalanced it will not 'sieve'. Use worms, shred, balance your mix, and leave as long as possible to get the most from this attachment. Place a tarp under tumbler, replace the door with sifter and turn,turn ,turn....what you get is a small amount of very 'fine quality' compost, good for potting mixes, but remember to sterilise it for seed sowing. The worms stay in the tumbler using the sieve and you can use this instead of the door for max air circulation if wanted.

Compostumbler 'Door' Sifter By Anonymous 1 29th October 2008

I bought a sifter attachment to go with my 635 litre compostumbler but was disappointed to find it really doesn't work with the material I make. I compost large volumes of greengrocers waste, garden materials, cooked food and roadkill: the compostumbler works well. When done in about 4 - 6 weeks, the door can be replaced with the 'sifter' to allegedly allow material to drop through. However, the compost is still too young to be very fine, it is still very wet, stringy + lumpy, so only a tiny amount falls through.. Also, as the mass falls onto the sifter panel, the stuff on top just sits down on it, preventing the material touching the sifter going through. Anyone who's used a riddle knows that a sideways movement is neccessary to make the bits fall through. This panel does not allow that. I use my 'sifter' door to give the wet mass more air and ventilation, I keep it on the drum all the time and the fruit/veg juices drip through. John Cossham johncossham(at)tiscali.co.uk
