The single drum on the trailer was done just to make sure the composting worked before we went to all the trouble of building the multi tumbler on the frame.

Sorry for the confusion there.

You read it right. I am impressed. Very genius. Multi stage? Even better!

We don't intend to insulate, may at some point have a building for the multi tumblers but for right now, winter is a time to relax and research. Having found this forum I have hours and hours of reading ahead of me. Most of the posts I've read so far are way beyond my level but it sure is fun reading them. I just stumbled on this site, saw the screener thread and up popped a picture of my sifter! Cool.

Lloyd -

Looks like you'll be the guru to making great items for compost around here. Glad you joined.

my gadget guy had this to say, that at 8 feet tall and 10 feet long they only turn out 9 yards of compost at a time, so for our use, maybe 40 of the units..........
