    Rated 1 de 5 de par Poor long-term durability I've owned this product for two years and it's finally kicked the proverbial bucket. It does compost quickly, there are quite a few design flaws. First and foremost is the gear and handle. 1) The plastic clips on the base are not sufficient to hold the handle in place when the composter starts to get heavy, so the handle and gear pops out when trying to rotate the drum. 2) The plastic end cap that holds the drum in place on the gear-side of the unit is not sufficient to hold the weight of the drum, and will eventually break (like mine just did) 3) The base eventually stretches and will not support the drum as it rotates, and the drum will fall out of the base (like mine just did). Eventually it will stretch out so far that the drum will not stay in the base, even when reinstalled. Save your money.

The directions are in a small print, which we can read. But the pictures with directions are fuzzy and unreadable. We are having problems with the handle staying on (which we cannot read because of the picture with directions is unreadable). It is frustrating, but we are trying to get it to work.

    Rated 4 de 5 de par Great product Would be 5 stars but I haven't had it long enough to really know. Very nice product, fit and finish is great. Some reviews complain about difficult assembly, but I had mine out of the box and fully assembled in minutes. Still working on my first batch but it really seems to be coming along nice. The center chamber tends to fill with dry, uncomposted material during the first batch but it's easy enough to run it back through. Be careful with the crank!! if you let go or slip off the handle at the wrong time it will give you a good 3 smacks before you know what's happening.

    Rated 1 de 5 de par Great idea Horrible product I have had 3 of these composters due to warranty replacements. They work wonderfully for 3-6 months and then fall apart when the center seperates and it falls out of the cradle. I have tried 2 all-thread rods through the side and a bolt in the back to hold the center drum in and they still fail. Customer service has been great but what a headache... save your money

    Rated 4 de 5 de par Would have gotten 5 stars, but..... The composter itself is well made & so far seems to work well (only have had it about 2 weeks). My only complaint is that the website claims you can assemble it in 5 minutes & it took my husband & I over 2.5 hours. Neither of us are particularly 'handy' but we're both intelligent people (engineer & optician) but the instructions to put it together require a bit of interpretation & were a bit out of order. Now that it is (finally) assembled, we've got it in the backyard & have no complaints. The opening to put your materials in is sufficient & once everything is inside, just close the door & give it a spin. The handle makes it very easy to turn the drum - just be careful - if the load hasn't shifted to the bottom completely the handle tends to spin around until the drum centers itself - I've been whacked by the handle once so learned that from personal experience. Now we're just waiting for some compost. The manual gave a wait time of 6 weeks, but we're just heading into winter now, so I imagine it won't be until 6 weeks after spring arrives that we see the results.

    What is difference in model 200 and model 400?

    Posée par: Anonyme
    The major difference between these two models is capacity: 200 = 200 liters, 400 = 400 liters. The Sun-Mar 200 Garden composter may be rotated manually as it does not get nearly as heavy. The Sun-Mar 400 Garden composter is fitted with a gear-shaft-handle assembly that easily applies more torque to turn the heavier drum. The 200 model is generally recommended for kitchen scraps and small amounts of yard waste. The 400 model is generally recommended for kitchen scraps and larger amounts of yard waste (e.g. someone who has a vegetable garden, or a larger property).

    Can we order the Sun-Mar 600 from Home Depot? If not, where can I order one from?

    Posée par: Anonyme
    Sun-Mar never made the 600 Garden Composter. This was a concept that never made it into production. It is not available at all.

    A lot of apples

    We have 3 large old Apple trees & plenty of apples that fall on the ground,are wormy ,bruised etc ..Would it be ok to put all of these in along with the other stuff?
    Posée par: Anonyme
    The apples will compost, but may not feed through the inner drum as per our "autoflow" design unless they are chopped up to some degree. Larger fruit and vegetable pieces must be cut up a bit to expose more surface area (for faster composting) as well as to flow through the system properly. Also, when adding larger amounts of organic material, one should also add something as a "bulking" agent to increase surface area further and up the organic carbon content in the compost pile. A great additive is Sun-Mar Compost Magic bricks see other product recommendations below.

    SUN-MAR 400 or 200 garden composter- how does one empty the compost?

    Seems to be from the face and not the bottom of the drum. Isn't this difficult to do?
    Posée par: Anonyme
    The compost exits the end of the drum. One must unscrew the end-cap (bung) and then rotate the drum. When the inner drum is full of finished compost and the end-cap is removed, some of the material will naturally drop our of the end when the drum is turned. If one wishes to completely empty the inner drum, you may reach in your hand and pull out the soil, or use a garden trowel or hoe to do so. Please view the attached photos. Compost may also be emptied out of the input port (slide opening) if the drum is turned about one third of a revolution from top dead center. This may be done if the composter needs to be emptied in a hurry (if it needs to be moved for instance).

    Is there any easy (tidy) way to retrieve the compost "tea"?

    Posée par: Anonyme
    Generally you won't have excess moisture enough to produce "compost tea" unless you heavily water the composter. The Sun-Mar 400 garden composter has vents/ drains in the bottom of the drum to allow excess liquid to escape (see pictures attached - 3 black circles). Thus, if one wished to harvest compost tea, you would need to place a tray or trough-like container under the unit in line with the drains to catch any potential liquid exiting the drum.

    Should this product be placed in the sun or the shade

    Sun-Mar 400 Garden composter
    Posée par: Anonyme
    It does not really matter. In the Sun, however the composter, being a dark colour will warm up rapidly and help to accelerate the composting process. With composting, the hotter it becomes, the faster it works. Of course, in summer months or during times of warmer temperatures exposure to sunlight is not necessary. It is the temperature that is a key factor, not the exposure to light. Other considerations for maximizing your composting speeds are: - H2O or the right moisture content (40-60%) - Carbon content (brown materials like: peat moss, saw dust, wood chips, chopped straw, etc...) - Nitrogen content (green materials like: kitchen scraps, grass clippings, tree trimmings, green leaves, etc...) - Oxygen (turning the drum will aerate the compost) - size of materials (smaller pieces break down faster due to more exposed surface area for the microbes to attack) Please see as well the other recommended Sun-Mar products below that are great for composting.

    How well does this turn fully loaded?

    I worry that this unit will not turn easily once it is actually loaded with compostable materials. Since composting requires humid materials, the weight will be a significant factor.
    Posée par: Anonyme
    Sun-Mar have taken this into consideration and have designed this product with a handle, shaft and gear assembly. The handle is sturdy and approximately a foot long with an ergonomic grip (built-in swivel) that makes it easy on the hands when turning the drum. A stainless steel shaft connects this to the small gear which gives a gearing ratio of 9 to 1 (e.g. nine turns of the handle rotates the drum one complete revolution). Thus, like peddling a bicycle uphill in a low gear, turning the drum will not be overly difficult even when the drum is heavily loaded with wet compost. Additional consideration should be given to ensure your compost is well balanced with carbon-rich items (i.e. Sun-Mar Compost Magic, peat moss, wood chips, saw dust, dead leaves, chopped straw etc...). Addition of these materials will ensure the right consistency in the drum (not too dense) and make sure the compost can flow through the inner drum correctly. Please see the recommended products for achieving optimal conditions in your Sun-Mar garden composter.
