Add Lifetime’s Dual Composter to your outdoor classroom for a more efficient way of composting with your students. The unit includes two separate, 50-gallon barrels so there’s no need to wait for your first batch of compost to finish before starting another. The barrels’ dual-wall panels help absorb heat and internal aeration bars create the airflow needed to break down compost ingredients. High-density polyethylene and steel construction holds up through weather conditions. Built-in handles make it easy to move the composter around your outdoor classroom or garden.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great design, but metal components did not last I like that the composter is raised above the ground because it prevents varmits from getting into my compost. The tumbling feature and the nooks in the barrel make it very effective for breaking down organic waste (full breakdown took 6-8 weeks in summer). However, after 1.5 years (purchased Nov 2016), the metal hinges have rusted and the doors cannot be opened anymore. There is also rust on other metal parts, but it's mostly cosmetic (does not affect usability).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Certainly not lifetime! I purchased this composter 3/12/15 and the first year the hinges and metal parts were showing rust. The barrels get quite heavy (I'm old) so I never really fill them. Today with the barrels about 1/4 full the barrel FELL APART--literally, I can send pictures by e-mail but not this format. Thought I should have gotten more than three

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved it... for the first year Works great until the hinges rust - after one year. Rusted on both bins making it impossible to open and close. Now sits unused. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great service I bought the composter about a year or so ago, and have been very happy with it. This year, the hinges rusted shut. I contacted lifetime via email to see if they had hinges available. The next morning, I had a response saying that they had shipped hinges. I receive them within two days. Very satisfied with the resolution to my problem. I would recommend placing the composter on raised blocks, as it is too low to get a wheel barrel under to empty otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked with us Like many reviews on here out hinges holding the door on rusted and broke rendering the composter unusable. That said, parts are on their way for free. I would not purchased the one we had as the parts do rust out, but would by a different model from this company. Composter has worked great, just need better parts(which they now have)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great follow up service I bought my composter about a year and a half ago. The metal hinges are a weak point of the product. Mine started rusting and one hinge twisted, making the door hard to close. I emailed to find out the price of a replacement hinge. The customer service rep responded immediately and sent a complementary part.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Metal parts not durable and rust quickly Purchased this composter 3 years ago. Several metal parts (hinges, bands, pins) have been or will soon need to be replaced due to breakage or rusting.
