Jora 270 Insulated Dual Kompost Tumbler

Swedish Insulated Rotational Dual Chamber Tumbler - 70 GAL

Jora 270. Designed and tested in the cold north of Sweden, this advanced rotational tumbler is heavily insulated so that the internal temperatures can reach 160˚F - promoting enhanced microbial activity for faster breakdown. Two compartments (each with their own handled access doors) allow for continuous composting – fill one side up and let in cook, while adding food scraps to the other side. Sturdy metal ground stand elevates drum to a comfortable height for more convenient loading of food scraps and emptying of finished compost. When the first chamber is fully decomposed in as little as 8 weeks, empty the mature side and repeat the process. Highly recommended by staff for the colder latitudes but will work effectively in all climate zones. Capacity - 70 gallons / 270 liters

  • Two (2) separate compartments with varying ages of decomposition allow for continuous composting
  • Drum style compost tumbler rotates horizontally along a central axis – helping to evenly distribute materials throughout chambers
  • Superior insulation allows internal temps to reach 160˚F, promoting active microbial activity – even in the dead of winter
  • Two hatch-style access doors with handles for convenient loading and unloading
  • Developed for food scraps but will also accept small amounts of soft yard waste, space permitting
  • Adjustable side vents provide fresh air and help minimize foul odor – can be closed temporarily during the coldest months to retain internally generated heat
  • Sturdy metal stand elevates tumbler off ground, reducing the possibility of entry by rodents and other critters
  • Detailed instructions provided with each system
  • Activation of pile is accelerated by the addition of fresh manure or living compost from an active pile
  • Chamber is considered functionally full when less than 4 inches of open space remains at the top
  • Chopping up the waste before adding it to the unit will greatly reduce the decomposition time
  • Use sawdust, shredded cardboard or coir to absorb excess moisture, and structure to finish compost, and provide a carbon source to help balance out the high nitrogen food waste
  • Rotate unit 1-2 turns with each addition of new waste. For excessively moist piles, rotate more frequently
  • Keep out soup, sauces, milk and other liquids
