  • Eliminate back strain with this hip level composter. The best garden tools are those that fit your style. If you prefer to work at waist level, this elevated compost maker is perfect. It is made with recycled components, including a re-used 55 gallon black barrel and 100% recycled lumber painted with water based exterior latex paint.

    Looking for a similar less expensive composter? Take a look at the Spin Bin compost tumbler .

    The composter is about 4 foot tall and only requires a 3 foot by 4 foot area. You can put it in a smaller area for storage, but you'll need that much space free from obstacles to spin the barrel and properly aerate the compost.

    Let Lars help you pick the right composter. See his recommendations at: Composter Reviews: Lars's Quick Picks .

    The most efficient bacteria, called "aerobes", need oxygen to do their work. Without oxygen, they cannot survive and anaerobes can take over. Anaerobic bacteria isn't very good at breaking down compost - those bacteria can slow decomposition down by as much as 90 percent.

    Don't miss our similar Tumbleweed compost tumbler.

    This tumbling compost bin features a center aeration tube with a cross bar that assists in the break up and separation of compost as it is turned. This prevents the materials from turning into a ball and just sliding back and forth when tumbled. The central bar is made with rust resistant galvanized steel.

    Our 55 Gallon Compost Tumbler is made from a recycled food grade barrel. Using a rocking motion to build momentum, a compost tumbler is relatively easy to turn. However, the composting action will rapidly reduce the content of the barrel to less than half its starting volume. As the unit fills up, it may require a bit of extra effort to start it spinning.

    I ordered this with some trepidation in February. It works very well, and we are so pleased with the sturdy construction. The lack of metal is a great plus, as there is no rusting to worry about. It does take a while to season, but the compost is just great. Thanks!

    Have had it for five years.. Works great. Easy to tumble and grass clippings turn to rich mulch with kitchen waste in about 10 weeks.
