Yimby Tumbler Composter, Color Black
This unique tumbling composter features two chambers - fill one side, while the other side cures, making it easy to efficiently convert your kitchen and yard waste into rich soil enhancing compost..
Time or money invested in your garden’s soil always brings the best returns: healthy, vigorous plants and great harvests. And when you keep yard waste and kitchen scraps from the landfill you’re doubly rewarded. You can buy ready-made, organic compost to get a jump start. But it’s easy and inexpensive to make your own with the right materials and good equipment.
Here you’ll find all you need to know about getting started as well as maintaining the process no matter which composting method you’ve chosen.
This unique tumbling composter features two chambers - fill one side, while the other side cures, making it easy to efficiently convert your kitchen and yard waste into rich soil enhancing compost. Just load it up, close the sliding door and use the convenient built- in hand holds to give it a turn every couple days and see how it produces finished compost in weeks.
Unique tumbling design
Avoid digging and mixing your compost pile by hand.
The tumbling design makes mixing easy and efficient. Just close the door and turn it 5-6 times every 2-3 days.
In hot sunny conditions and with a proper balance of ingredients the compost can finish in as little as 2 weeks.
Two Composting Chambers
Two separate sides allow the first side to finish cooking while leaving the second side available to add fresh scraps/clippings.
Continuously swapping sides after finishing will create an uninterrupted flow of rich, healthy compost.
The yimbly tumbler composter body is constructed from BPA free, UV inhibited recycled polypropylene.
It is contact safe and will not degrade under direct sunlight. The galvanized steel frame is corrosion resistant.
The composter features adjustable air vents as well as deep fins to break up clumps inside the chamber and mix lots of oxygen into the compost.
Tumbling composters allow far greater aeration than standard models.
Tips to remember when using Yimbly tumbler composter
It’s time to let you in on a little secret:
soil building done like this is the perfect lazy person’s gardening project. Unlike weeding or double-digging, which take lots of time and physical effort, a compost pile pretty much takes care of itself.
Build it right, and it will transform your growing expectations.
Mistakes to Avoid
It’s hard to mess up compost, but we’re happy to offer a little direction so you get off to the best start.
1. Don’t start too small. The breakdown process needs a critical mass in order to do its job. However, certain composters work well for small amounts of material, so choose a product for your specific needs.
2. Keep things moist. It’s easy to walk away and forget that there’s an active process going on, so check the pile regularly, especially during hot, dry weather. Learn more about how to manage moisture in compost.
3. Don’t depend on one material. A combination of different textures and nutrients created by the disintegration of many different plants will give your plants a gourmet diet that helps create disease and pest resistance. Think about it — a huge clump of grass clippings just sticks together in a huge mat that hangs around for years. Add some leaves, stir, and natural forces like water, air and heat go to work quickly!
4. Don’t get overwhelmed. This isn’t rocket science, so jump in and try, even if you don’t have a clue. You’ll soon see what works and what doesn’t.
What others are saying about making compost with Yimbly tumbler composter
Most users have found making their home compost with yimbly tumbler composter both easy and cost effective. However, the composter also has it's own fair share of challenges.
For instance, one user had the following to say;
"Worth the purchase. Only problem is the divider. Does not stay in place if one side packed and other not."
Apart from this not so positive comment, most users have seen positive results with the composter. Some have been happy to turn their kitchen trash into treasure with as little as 2 weeks. One such user had this to say;
"I just bought this and put it together myself, it took me 2 1/2 hours but I didn't mind because I was excited to get it and I took my time. It was fairly easy to assemble once I got started but there are a ton of screws for the barrel part (56) and that was the most time consuming part for me, trying to reach inside blindly with the nut to screw onto the screw.
Once put together I felt it was pretty sturdy and placed in a (Recommended) sunny spot. I feel the people who have placed bad reviews on this have not fully read the directions.
It say's to place it in a sunny spot to help along the cooking process and to mix the appropriate ratio of nitrogen to carbon for best results. If your compost isn't doing anything folks, smells sour, is too wet and stuck to the sides, ect... your not doing it right, read the directions!
Also it's easy to get the dirt out if you read the directions.
It say's to place tarp on ground (I use a bucket) rotate doors to bottom and slide open the cured content chamber, cured compost will fall out, slide tarp out.
I have also read some reviews stating if it rains the grooves fill with water and when you tumble it the water gets all over you, relax people, it's water, tumble it away from you.
Over all this product is affordable, works like it advertises when used with common sense, easy to tumble, makes beautiful compost and I would recommend it as an affordable alternative to the more expensive tumblers."
In summary, converting your kitchen waste into compost is much easier with yimbly tumbler composter. Made with recycled plastic bin and steel frame, adjustable air vents, and a 37-gallon capacity, you'll have your compost in as little as 2 weeks!
