DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT! I purchased the compost twin for a special birthday present for an avid, professional, gardener. It was put together following poor directions. Finally after many hours of labor and following directions we could not put the composter together because they sent the wrong rods. We called and were given a very hard time about trying to get the right rods. We told them they could have the machine back and they decided they would finally send the right parts. It was more than two more weeks before they sent the right parts. So again we spent hours and hours putting the compost twin together. Finally the machine was in place. Hooray we thought, an easy way to make our compost. NOT!!!!!!! We followed directions for adding green materials, the activator we bought from them that they recomended, etc. We turned the "mess", etc., and followed directions to a "T". All we got was a dripping, horrid smelling mess. When we added new greens and activator the STENCH was horrific. No compost, just a nasty mix of rotting vegetation, etc. We tried the second barrel and the same thing happened. The only thing we cultivated with our mess - you could never call it compost, was a family of skunks!! The twin composter constantly leaked and attracted vermin. We did not dare open our door at night because we placed the twin composter right outside one of our greenhouses, that happened to be near our residence. If the twin composter worked as advertised this would never have been a problem. BUT---No matter what we did, spraying down, adding fresh green materials from the gardens, adding the activator, etc., nothing worked. We have never been able to make anything close to what is advertised - compost my foot. Or maybe I should say my skunks feet. My neighbor watched as a family of five skunks crossed the street to get to our twin composter. They loved the horrid smelly liquid that constantly leaked from it. We are sending it back, and to top off the insult of having to deal with all this mess and expense, they are requiring us to find a return method and to pay for it. The composter and the company both need improvement. I am going back to the old fashioned, inexpensive, compost maker. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS JUNK.

We called ahead to tell them we'd be traveling 125 miles to purchase two of their composters and asked how we could reserve them. They assured us there were plenty in stock and there was no need to reserve them. I called two days before making the trip to make sure there was no problem and got the same response. They weren't even willing to take a deposit for them.

I should have followed up a long time ago on this. We returned the unites because they did not do what it was promised they would.
