Mantis ComposTumbler® Composters are the Ultimate Composting Machines

Our unique tumbler design has been meticulously proportioned to speed up the composting process. You'll get finished compost in 14 days!


The key to making great compost fast is to have your organic materials contained so that a heat core can be built quickly.

The dimensions of the ComposTumbler, in all sizes, have been professionally and accurately calculated for maximum efficiency in building a heat core. As the drum of the ComposTumbler is turned, the materials inside the composter mix and the core is stable.

Air and moisture are the other two essential ingredients. The ComposTumbler is designed with air vents on the sides of the drum and on the door so air flow is unimpeded during composting. Drainage units on the door allow for any excess moisture to escape so materials won't get soggy.

The result is a perfectly balanced, contained rotating bin composter that turns organic throwouts into compost in 14 days.

You can learn more about the simple, 3-step process of how to make compost on our How to Make Compost page.



Mantis ComposT-Twin Dual Chamber Composter

The ORIGINAL composter with TWO rotating 10 bushel capacity bins in one machine – allowing your compost to "cook" in one chamber, while leaving room to fill the second chamber with plenty of organic scraps.

Just add your compost materials to one of the twin chambers, turn the handle to spin the drum each day, and in weeks you’ll have nutrient-rich fertilizer.

Mantis ComposT-Twin - Our Large Capacity 2-Bin Rotating Composter

The Mantis ComposT-Twin holds almost 25 cubic feet of raw material - that's 10 bushel in each chamber!

The ComposT-Twin is constructed of the finest quality materials and built for years of use. Our sturdy tubular steel frame and galvanized drum are designed to last and last, year after year.


Other Composting Methods Just Don't Measure Up

Backyard Composting Compost Bins Plastic Compost Bins Unbalanced

Backyard Composting

An open compost pile in your backyard is pretty easy. However, all it takes is one rainy spell, or one hot dry spell, and your opportunity for getting compost is gone. A proper balance of moisture is essential for great compost. You simply can't control it in a compost pile.

Compost Bins

Putting your organic throw outs into an open compost bin may contain them, but you'll still attract rodents and pests, still have to suffer through turning the pile, and the end result is that the best nutrients are actually going into the ground under your compost.

Plastic Compost Bins

Stationary plastic compost bins look OK in your yard, but they're a real "pain" to use. Turning the compost is so difficult you'll need to buy a special tool. Getting what little finished compost you have is awkward and hard on your knees as well as your back. Most gardeners lose as much as they get, just trying to get it out.

Barrel Composters

Elongated-type barrel composters do not allow for proper distrbution of the mass inside, so the result is decaying materials that are wet and slimy instead of rich, crumbly compost. Plus, they're unbalanced and difficult to turn.
