The Earth Machine Backyard Composter

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, can forget about it, open on the bottom

Cons: sometimes hard to mix because the top is tapered

This was free because I attended a Warwick Township (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) composting workshop at the municipal building. It's very easy to use. It's big, and it's open on the bottom so ground works can get in all on their own and help you along. There is also a little door on the bottom for easy access to the stuff already composted. I call it Darth because it looks like Darth Vader.

Troubleshooting/Known Issues:

Had an issue other users should know about? Put it here.

The inside lip is quite sharp, can cut your hands/fingers easily, so make sure you wear garden gloves when stirring the pot,
and it will serve you well. A great little composter, anyone can assemble.  We are planning on getting another.
