Compost Tumblers

Compost tumblers are one of the easiest and quickest methods of producing organic compost. The ability to turn or tumble the decaying organic matter enables oxygen, one of the four requirements for compost making, to energize the microorganisms into speeding up the decomposition. By it's very nature most compost tumblers are created out of plastics and/or metals.

If you are managing a hot compost, you will want to tumble your compost every 1 to 3 days, or when the interior temperature dips below about 110 degrees F. After tumbling, the compost's temperature should rise again, as long as there is still material left to be broken down. When the temperature stays relatively even, no matter how much you tumble the compost, your humus is likely ready. Tumble your compost less frequently in cool weather, while tumbling quickens the decomposing, it also allows heat to escape into the air.

Gear-driven drum means easy, no-slip turning, even when the composter is full. Aeration vents and interior fins for mixing materials as the drum is turned produce finished compost faster. Load it up with kitchen and yard waste and tumble every few days, and you can have finished compost in about five weeks.
