    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.

    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..........

    but i still think there cool..............
