- 2 to 25 gallon chambers
Get started composting right with the Compost Wizard Dueling Tumbler Starter Kit. The Compost Wizard Dueling Tumbler combines some of the greatest features in our tumblers to create a compact tumbler that does it all. With compost tumblers, users are restricted to working with one batch at a time. The Dueling Tumbler overcomes this drawback by supporting two batches running simultaneously. Each 25-gallon chamber is separated and can compost independently. Also on the Dueling Tumbler is a compost tea-collecting base that collects excess composting liquid for later use on plant root and soil. As with the majority of our tumblers, the Dueling Tumbler is manufactured using recycled polyethylene in Lake City, Pennsylvania. This plastic is BPA-free and FDA-approved for contact with edibles.
Setting up the composter is easy: Simply place the composter in a mostly sunny spot (partial shade in hotter climates) and you're done. The composter comes fully assembled.
The Dueling Tumbler already takes your composting to the next level, but you can go even further with the included accessories. The Coco Fiber brick is perfect for those with a need to compost but have little access to carbon-rich ingredients such as urbanites. More than a simple substitute, the Coco Fiber is a natural byproduct of the coconut harvesting process and is a great peat moss replacement as well. In compost, the fibers act like a sponge and create micro pockets of air and moisture that become production centers for the thermophilic bacteria that perform the heaviest composting action. Combined with the included compost accelerant, you can expect to get great compost in no time.
The included accelerator pouch comes with two bags that can be mixed with water and added to the batch. Each bag can treat 12 cubic feet of compost. And you can track your compost batch's status with the large, specially designed compost thermometer.
The large 19" probe can nestle deep into the center of your batches to get accurate temperature readings in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, with a range from freezing to boiling. Knowing how hot your compost is can greatly help with troubleshooting or to determine if moisture should be added, contents turned or a change up in ingredients should take place. No matter what your level of experience, the Compost Wizard Dueling Tumbler Starter Kit will give you all the tools you need to be a composting master.
