Different Types of Composting Tumbler

Composting tumbler always comes with worm composting since the former cannot be done without the later. However, there are also things that need to be considered when choosing the best one. And to help you get acquainted, you have to be familiarized with the different types of composting tumbler.

There are actually four types:  crank-operated drums, center-axle mounted drums, base mounted rolling drums and rolling spheres.  The most recommended among the four is the crank-operated drums because wastes can easily be emptied and the drum itself is easy to operate.  However, while this is the most effective type of composting tumbler, it also is the most expensive one.  

Meanwhile, center-axle mounted drums are also good but not as effective as the crank-operated drums.  Mounted in vertical form, it can be operated easily but emptying it is a bit difficult.  Base mounted rolling drums are also like the center axle mounted drums (efficiency wise) except that the later is horizontally mounted and is on a ground level.  Lastly, we have the rolling spheres which are actually the hardest to operate.  Aside from that, they are also hard to empty making it inconvenient and time consuming on your part.

Another way to make sure that your vermicomposting farm (either in a large or small scale) realizes its purpose is by taking time to look at their smallest needs.  Though the work will mainly come from the worms, your responsibility on them welfare is very vital.
