Extra Strong Reinforced Barrel – UV protected for long life. It features multiple air vents to promote aerobic decomposition. Whilst the large opening and sliding doors allow for the easy addition of waste and the collection of ready compost.
Two Composting Compartments – a sturdy divider sections the tumbler into two ‘compartments’ allowing you to fill one compartment at a time. In this way, once the second compartment is full the first compartment should be full of ready to harvest compost and you will have a continuous composting cycle established.
What To Compost – when adding garden and kitchen waste to your compost tumbler you should aim for a 50 / 50 mix of ‘green’ and ‘brown’ waste. ‘Green’ waste includes green leaves, grass clippings, fruit and vegetable scraps, cut flowers, cow, horse, pig or chicken manures, lucerne hay etc. ‘Brown’ waste includes brown leaves, dead grass, dead weeds, paper, cardboard, mulch, sawdust, hay or straw etc.
Turning The Compost – when adding fresh waste into the compost tumbler you should turn the tumbler a few times to mix the new and old waste together. Other than that, you should simply turn the compost tumbler 2-3 times a week. To make this turning easy the compost tumbler features a unique gear and crank system with handle to allow for effort free rotation. A built-in ratchet lock will automatically lock rotation in any position and prevents backwards rotation of the barrel.
Mature Compost – it can take anywhere from 8 to 24 weeks for your garden and kitchen waste to turn into a mature compost ready to be applied to your garden. Before using in your garden pick through the compost to remove are large particles which have not broken down as fast as everything else – these can be thrown back into the compost tumbler to continue breaking down.
Strong Frame – of powder coated zinc. Its open front design allows for the easy access of compost when it’s ready to be used – there is plenty of room for a compost cart or bucket to slide in underneath. Then it’s simply a case of rotating the tumbler so that the door is face down and sliding the door open to let the compost fall out.
Optional Composting Cart – working perfect alongside your Compost tumbler, this cart has a 55 litre capacity and is 1ft 10in / 67cm wide x 1ft 11in / 58cm deep x 2ft 11in / 89cm high. It’s strong and sturdy, making moving compost around your garden easier. For simple storage when not in use the handle can be removed.
