I'll certainly buy another one when I have a shed big enough to accommodate it. I use my previous one in the garage m(too small for the car) and it was brilliant. With handy electricity for my shredder I was able to fill it with just the right amount of prepared material according to instructions. It did exactly what it said on the tin. However, when I took it to my allotment and placed it in the open, never produced enough heat, the material was too coarse and it soon rusted away. But I loved it when it worked, so little effort and so convenient (at home).
Having already owned one of these, I bought another with a heavy heart. My first one fell apart as first the frame rusted and then buckled (replaced at considerable expense); this happened again, and at the same time the rods holding the drum together rusted away, so I decided to start again. The problem is that there is not really an alternative for something of this size, and I admit that it does work, although I can't imagine many have the time to measure, chop etc. in line with the instructions to get it to perform as promised. No, my real complaint is that for something of this price, the quality of the construction should be much higher. I don't think that a frame that is out-of-doors should be so flimsy in the first place and so prone to rust, and I was astounded when the internal rods rusted away - helloooo - are the makers surprised that there is damp material in there? Given that it is American, I am surprised their much more actively complaining customers have not forced a re-design. As I say, though, it does work, even if not for as long as it should, nor able to cope with the rough-and-tumble of composting.
at first attempt i found that the core temp only reached 30 C then it dropped back to 20 C, i decided that the rain was getting in via the seams so i carefully masked up the seams and squrited in silicom mastic, made a neat job of it too, i also decided to keep filling it as and when the compost compacted down, was amazed to see the temp rise to 60C, i carefully mix green waste with straw, paper anything thats at hand, a bonus is that i collect a bit of compost soup, you'll need a cheap clean funnel to pour it into a plastic bottle, doubt if i'll get compost in 2 weeks more like 4 all in all seems a good product

Compost tumblers can help turn what is traditionally a ten-plus month practice into a 14-day fast-track composting process. Fill with your organic waste from the garden and kitchen and give the drum a couple of spins once a day. Any liquid produced by the composting process Ã¢â‚¬â€œ which traditionally leaches into the soil and is wasted Ã¢â‚¬â€œ can be collected and used as a high potash feed.
