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 tumblers so there’s no need to wait for your first batch of compost to finish before starting another. The tumblers’ black coloring helps absorb heat and internal aeration bars and vented sides create the airflow needed to break down compost ingredients. High-density polyethylene and steel construction holds up through weather conditions. Built-in handles and a lightweight design make it easy to move the composter around your outdoor classroom or garden.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked it while it lasted I have had my composter for 4+ years. It did take a long time to assemble. My pins to hold the barrels in place broke pretty shortly after we purchased it. All of the metal inside of the barrels began rusting shortly after we started using it. When it rains water gets inside of the lid, so when you tumble it you can hear water sloshing around inside of it. The closing mechanism has always been stiff but has been functional and served it's purpose, until today. One of the bars of the latch snapped off when I tried to turn it. It has composted a lot of soil over the last few years, but I don't think I will purchase this model again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional product and customer service!!! I bought this composter several years ago and have been extremely happy with it. But what is most exceptional is the incredible customer service provided by Lifetime when parts have needed to be replaced. As others have noted, the interior locking mechanism rusted after a year or so of use. I called Lifetime and they immediately sent me a replacement with an updated anti-rust coating. Yesterday the locking pin on the left bin broke, I just got off the phone with lifetime and again they immediately acted on the problem and are sending me a replacement. It is rare to find a company with such integrity and great service. Lifetime rocks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Service Bought the Dual Compost Tumbler a long time ago, maybe 5 years. Love it. Taken pretty good care of it by cleaning the rusty locking mechanism every 6 mos or so. Was a little disappointed they weren't more rust resistant. Anyway, finally rusted shut and since they work great for us otherwise, I called to see if I could buy replacement parts. Talked to Luke in customer service who quickly volunteered to ship them for free. He did this without me complaining, threatening, whining or anything. The company stands by its products, hires terrific associates who deliver amazing customer service. Many thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great but rusted out We bought this compost Tumbler for my wife on her birthday four years ago. It has been great and so easy to turn, however, the rust has been building up on the hinges and inside latches and getting harder and harder to open. Recently, the back hinges on one of the barrels rusted out and broke off, rendering the unit unable to be used. The handles have been rusting and harder to use but with a spray have been able to open it. It is a shame only one tumbler works now since we can't latch the other lid. Disappointed it did not last longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Feature Over all I am happy with the product and using over 2 months. However, it required skilled help to assemble and it took 2 people over 2 hours. Two joint strips were broken in shipment which I received from life time for replacement. The challenge is how to replace broken one with new one. Hope I get instruction from Lifettime. I see two issues Liftime need to improve and help me out. 1. As shown in attached photo door latch round cap cover falls off when I rotate. I put tap over it to keep it in place. 2. Pink guide on handle comes off and do not stay

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a Master Compost Instructor ...for Clallam County in Washington State. When it comes to composters, whether store bought or hand built, I've seen them all. But of all of them, I tip my hat to this one. I was out buying the parts to build a new drum composter - a plastic 45gal barrel and some aluminum - but the moment I saw this one, I was sold! In fact, the money I spent wouldn't even pay for the parts of the one I was about to build. More importantly, this one has indestructible construction (extremely important when dealing with nematodes and other microbes breaking down organic matter into compost), a powder-coated base, and the multi-position drum locking system is a breeze to fill and empty! It's also the perfect size for the average residential home. Best of all,'s incredibly easy! For best results, mix 50% brown with 50% green, then tumble it for a minute or two. Within a day or two (depending on the ambient temperature), the mixture will begin to generate heat. Encouraged by this units double-wall construction, this is what you want, ....SO LEAVE IT ALONE! Once the temperature has subsided, spin the drum for a minute to remix the ingredients. Again, it will begin to generate heat. For best results, do this procedure 3 or 4 times, until it no longer generates heat. It is now ready to use. One last comment about compost. The goal of composting is not to make compost, but to create an environment that generates and encourages microbial habitat; these are the little guys that continue to break down organic matter into the building blocks that feed your plants long after you have spread the compost on your garden or lawn. Like you, nematodes need air and water to survive, so dry soil is dead soil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing customer support The double bin composter does exactly what it is supposed to do....When I buy something and it does what it is supposed to do I have a problem leaving a review. Why should I praise a company because their product actually does what I paid for?!?! BUT THAT'S NOT WHY I'M LEAVING THIS REVIEW.....Lifetime has, hands down, the best customer service you will ever experience!!!! (imagine about 1,000 more "!"). I have had to call them up a few times for minor issues due to wear and tear and they have ALWAYS been extremely helpful, polite, and courteous. There are two things I can promise you: 1. When you buy a composter, small things will start to eventually fail, and 2. No other company will stand behind their product the way Lifetime does.
