Achla CMP-05 Spinning Horizontal ComposterBy
A popular compost tumbler model that sells for about $209.99, the Achla CMP-05 Spinning Horizontal Compost tumbler is about the height of a tall 4-year-old - 36 inches - and is reportedly very easy to turn.
Made from 100-percent recycled plastic, the sliding door on the Achla CMP-05 Spinning Horizontal Compost tumbler is secure enough to prevent wandering critters from accessing the composting material that's baking inside.
This compost tumbler holds 7 cubic feet of composting material and sits securely on the rolled-metal stand that it comes with. The spinning bar, along the with strategically placed ridges inside the Achla CMP-05 Spinning Horizontal Compost tumbler, manage to easily break up chunks of composting material.
While the unit is relatively easy to put together and can be done in about 15 minutes with a wrench and a screwdriver, a second person could come in handy when it comes time to attach the Achla CMP-05's main composting container to the legs.

The Achla CMP-05 Spinning Horizontal Compost tumbler is a solid, no-nonsense product that does exactly what it says, but there have been some problems reported with the shipping of this compost tumbler. It has been reported that the stand parts have arrived unsecured, just tossed into the container. Coming in at a solid 37 pounds of shipping weight, Achla needs to make sure that their products are shipped a bit more securely.
