    Has anyone used one of these? If so, what do you think about them? I was thinking about getting one to start making my own mulch.

    I have one like that but smaller and they are great.You just have to put it in a place where you will remember to put stuff in it and tumble it.You have to chop your stuff pretty good before putting it in there too.

    It's a great idea, but regardless of how many cycles you can do in a season, even the biggest one doesn't make enough for the serious gardener.

    I had one of the biggest ones and it just wasn't nearly enough.
