Compost Aerating Tool

Product number: 50954

One of the tricks to producing good quality compost is to stir it up around once a month to maintain air circulation; this provides better conditions for the bacteria that keep the process going. Push this device into your compost heap, give it a twist, and then pull it out again – a simple process that will greatly improve the finished product.

Made from iron with comfortable handles. Easy self-assembly.

"Mr William.E.Gray"

It does what it says on the tin.If you find ANY nut on ANYTHING such as the composter handle has a tendency to unscrew get some nut locking liquid from any motor accessory shop and a drop on any thread before putting on the nut,tighten and it will not unscrew until you take a spanner to it.

"Does what I wanted"

Could do with being a little longer to reach the bottom of my bin more easily, but turns the mix well and has helped speed up some stubborn sections of my compost :)

"Well I think it's brilliant!"

No problems with it falling apart - and I'm a mere woman! No problems with it getting to the bottom of the bin - it's not full to the top anyway! No problems with it fitting into the width of the bin - and our bin isn't enormous! So all in all a very handy gadget!

"Too short"

star star star_border star_border star_border

I agree with those who have written saying that this is too short. I have 3 of the local council provided plastic compost bins. If this was several inches longer it would be ideal and I would stop banging my knuckles on the opening of the bin. Good price though if I'm wearing gloves!

"Did not work for me"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

This tool did not work. Firstly, it is too short. My composter is approximately a third full. To get the tool into the compost, I had to get the handle through the top of the bin which is not wide enough. Secondly, when I did get the tool into the compost and twisted it, the 'claws' at the bottom remained closed. This is no more effective than pushing a pole into the compost and withdrawing it again. Sorry Lakeland, on this occasion, I was not happy with the product.
