It is simple and effective, but the stakes bend quite easily. Also, the lid can be a little tricky to get off. The plastic is not as thick and durable as the original Earth Machine. Not a complete knock-off, this composter I think will do the job for us!

Will this last if I leave it outside all year, through MI winters, or do I need to bring it in the garage during winter?

Asked by: forevermail
I live in Colorado where we have stretches of 60 degree days switching to 0 and lasting for weeks. I have had my compost bin for 4 years and it looks like I just bought it. Very sturdy to with stand cold temps.

how do you turn the pile

Asked by: milhouse
I use a garden fork & "stir" the contents every couple weeks. Some instruction or advice on how to use should come with the bin. I do move the bin once every 6 months, easy to do & spread the beautiful black compost through out my garden. Compost starter is good to have on hand especially if you're putting in dry material such as leaves.

Mine was shipped with missing parts. Box came without metal grounding pegs, composting guide booklet and the bin. Is there 2 shipments or did I make a mistake with ordering this product?
Asked by: Justin
It comes on only one shipment. I would contact the company and let them know the problem.

Is this just the base?

I'm confused.....is this just the base (an accessory) or both the bin AND the base?
Asked by: Kestra
It is the bin and the base. It's inconsistent that the bin with base is cheaper than without the base, but I'm not complaining.

What is the difference between the compost bin with a base or without the base.

Asked by: Barbara
The bin is the same. The base is separate and doesn't have to be used.

Can it be put on concrete or must it be on soil?
Asked by: Rlis
With the base in place, I believe it should be safe to use on concrete without damage.

The directions I have for composting say to rotate the compost every couple of weeks. How do I do that with this composter? Manually?
Asked by: Baldman64
Yes, manually. This can be done with a pitchfork or small shovel. This doesn't seem to be an issue so far, but may be more difficult if the bin is full.
