    Just got this and managed to assembly easily. parts all were high grade and fit nicely, even had quite a few nuts and bolts left over as spares since it came shipped with extras. Few things to be aware of: 1. Be sure to note the extra hole on the one side edge for the hexagonal sections. the sides that hold the door have an extra hole in the center of the edge. if you don't line them up in the beginning you'll have to start over. 2. For assembling the tumbler section: a ratcheting screwdriver is recommended over an electric one. the electric can over tighten too much and cause the plastic to break ruining the seal. 3. Might want to have two people do this though one person can if they are careful. the tumbler section will want to rotate on its own when you are assembling the panels and it helps to have an extra set of hands just to hold it. otherwise it can be a bit awkward. I cant wait to see how well this thing composts. perfect for my small back yard garden!

    I am a beginner, yes. Overall, I feel happy with the tumbler. First, the price is much better than other places. Shipping is timely, answering my expectation. Regarding assembly process, my experience is good, very good. I am not technically smart, but I was able to complete it within 1 hour. But I did not use the instructions on the printout. Thanks to another reviewer comments, I was able to find online instructions, which make assembly an exciting and easy process. Ah, I have to say that with the tumbler, I can recycle a lot of things from home, which makes us really happy. So far, I have no problems or complaints about it. The reason why I give it 4 stars (while putting 5 stars on hold) is that I have the tumbler for only 8 days, and just started composting 6 days, I haven't got any compost finished yet. I am waiting to see my products. Thanks for giving me a chance to review the product.

    Only had this product a couple of weeks, so no compost yet - and this review ONLY covers cost, delivery and ease of assembly. Cost: At least $20 cheaper than rival websites (Lowes, Home Depot etc). I'm cool with that... Delivery: Wow. FREE UPS Ground shipping direct from the manufacturer in MI and it arrived in just 4 days (not the 7-10 I expected). Assembly: Instructions were very easy to follow. But there are a LOT of screws (56 from memory) so I almost developed a blister on my thumb! Only downside was that they'd supplied 12 screws, and 5 nuts too many. So once everything was assembled, I began to freak at these extras. What had I missed?! But I went over everything again, and I'd used all the screws I should have. And now it's sitting there in the garden, doing its thing - one chamber already full of garden waste, and vegetable scraps. Can't wait for the results!

    My first order was missing several screws (10 to be exact) and 5 nuts. The instructions were horrible. The bars for which the barrel is identified as AA, BB, etc but the actual item is not marked making it very difficult to figure out which bar goes where. I wish somehow they were marked or some sort of measurement would have been nice. Once the actual metal pieces were together, the instruction on putting the black slots were a little complicated to figure out how it went. After trying for several seconds to get a slot to fit it was figured out. The picture for how to put the item together was poorly written, it was very confusing trying to figure out which way the nut went. Better clearer instructions for the whole item would be nice. The price for the product was great compare to other home improvement places so I can't complain about that. The customer service rep who helped place a second order so that I had the correct number of screws and nuts was very good, interesting enough I had extra nuts but still was missing at least 2 screws (problem solved with a trip to Lowes).

    Even better than I had hoped. Went together easily and spins very well. The only metal is the screws and stand, so the barrel won't rust through.

    • A. There is a sliding panel that goes in front of the entry holes, to keep the compost in while cooking. When the compost is finished you just slide the panel out and rotate the composter so the opening is on the bottom. The compost should fall right out.

    • A. I just have it a week, and haven't got any compost coming out yet. But looking at its structure, I believe that removing finished compost will be easy through the door.

    • A. The door slides in both directions, so back out the entrance. Put a tarp under and let it fall out.

    • A. One of the 8 side panels is a sliding door. Place container or tarp under composter, slide open door, and rotate barrel until opening is on the bottom for compost to fall out.

    • A. Yes, it comes in pieces and the box it arrives in looks small, but once built it holds a lot. More than a tall kitchen trash can, each side. Took two of us 15 to 20 min to put together. Not hard just tedious.

    • A. Yes, it does have to be put together. It took me about 2 hours but I like the process, so I always take longer than necessary. It was not difficult to put together though, and I was able to do it totally myself.
