Our unique tumbler design is proportioned to speed up the process. You’ll get compost in as little as a few weeks!
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, self-contained rotating bin composter. There is a Mantis composter that’s the perfect size for any home and they all share the same key features!
Easy to load and unload and designed to be easy to turn – even when fully loaded!
State of the Art Design…
Aerator vents allow oxygen into the chamber while venting assures even air flow and proper drainage.

Quality and Durability
Constructed of the finest quality materials and built for years of use, every ComposTumbler is designed to last and last, year after year.
Other Composting Methods Just Don’t Measure Up
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.
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.
Elongated-type barrel composters do not allow for proper distribution 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.
