Soil / Compost Trommel

YouTube video of the compost trommel in operation

This is a compost tumbler I made.  The cylinder is made out of bicycle rims and hardware wire, 1/4 inch.  It’s about 4 feet long.  The machine is powered by a 1 horse power electric motor.  The tumbler can handle large quantities of compost or dirt.  The handles that protrude out from the machine can be take off by simply unscrewing them.  I designed the tumbler to maneuver like a wheelbarrow.  There’s a trailer jack in the front to adjust the angle of the machine.
