About the Manufacturer

In the beginning, all the founder of Lifetime Products wanted was a sturdier basketball pole for his backyard. With this in mind, he found and purchased a piece of heavy-duty used pipe, a sheet of plywood, and a basketball rim. The result was a basketball standard for his backyard. That was 1972.

Seeing the potential that others might also desire a quality basketball system in their yards, he placed an ad in the "Big Nickel," the local free classified newspaper, and made his first sale. The rest — as they say — is history.

Not too many years after selling his first basketball system, he created the American PlayWorld company in 1973, which he based in his garage located in Riverdale, Utah. Gradually this store kept expanding into many more types of playground equipment, and was eventually moved to a bigger location in South Ogden, Utah.

Several years later, the company transformed the Basketball industry with the introduction of the Quick Adjust basketball pole — the first complete basketball system you could raise up and down with a broomstick.

In March 1986, a separate company was created to concentrate specifically on manufacturing adjustable basketball systems. This new company was named Lifetime Products, the name inspired by the goal of building a durable, lasting product.

Today, Lifetime Products Inc. has applied innovation and cutting-edge technology in plastics and metals to create a family of affordable lifestyle products that feature superior strength and durability. The world's leading manufacturer of folding tables and Chairs, Lifetime was founded as the maker of portable basketball systems that revolutionized the industry with patented technology. With new offerings such as outdoor sheds and utility trailers, Lifetime continues to develop innovative products that outfit the lifestyles of today's Americans.

In the time since those first crucial years in Lifetime's history, the company has grown from having 18 employees in a 32,000 square-foot space in half a warehouse in the Clearfield, Utah Freeport Center to over 1,400 employees and 2.6 million square feet spread over 23 separate buildings.

    Heavy duty compostor

    from San Jose, CA – Verified Buyer

    I bought this as a gift for my wife and read the reviews prior to making the purchase. I wanted a good product that would be sturdy and last many years. I believe this product will do just that. As for assembly, I am very handy and put many things together and thought it would take less time then mentioned in the other reviews. But as it turns out they were right on the money with 3 hours. If I had to assemble a second composter I am sure I could reduce my time by at least half due to familiarity with the product. A lot of my time was spent deciphering the pictures to determine what the intent of the step was. Most steps don't have written instructions just pictographs. This is not bad until you get to the lid (about the 5th step) then at the bottom of the step there is a note not to drill the holes in one of the pieces (oops just a little late). Up to that point every step was do this to both pieces ( this caught me off guard) but as it turns out it is not the end of the world if the lid gets these holes drilled but none the less I hope this saves someone from making the same mistake I made. I have not used this yet so I cannot comment on how well it works, but it should be fine.

    Lots of assembly

    from Gardnerville, NV – Verified Buyer

    The product seems to be of pretty good quality. There was lots of assembly required. According to instructions, it required two people but I had not problem doing it myself but then I am tall with long arms. Someone of shorter stature my require a second person. Some of the diagrams in the instruction manual did not match up to the actual assembly. Also, I found it quite odd that they didn't pre drill the holes that were required for assembly. They included a drill bit and asked you to do your own drilling. It was also odd for them to ask you to insert a plastic plug into some holes used in the manufacturing process instead of them doing that themselves!

    Takes two to assemble.

    from Katonah, NY – Verified Buyer

    No problem with durability and this is a good size; took at least a few hours to assemble--and that was with my brother-in-law, who had already assembled to of these for himself, and you definitely need two people to assemble it. Neverthelss, I would definitely recommend this composter. Its now about half full and getting harder and harder to rotate, but still far easier than manually turning over the compost.

    Great product and even better customer service, way to go Wayfair.

    from Cave Creek, AZ – Verified Buyer

    I ended up with two of these. The first composter had a small hole on the lid and one of the two concave handles look like it had melted slightly during the manufacturing process. it sill function but i told Wayfair just so they would be aware and they sent me a second unit IMMEDIATELY. INCREDIBLE customer service, a RARE thing these days. The second unit arrived a few days later having absolutely no flaws. Way to go Wayfair for putting customer satisfaction first and foremost. I will look at your company for future purchases. Pros: Bins works perfect. First load of compost has been literally cooking for a week. Just the right size and very sturdy. Cons: none so far

    lifetime tumbler composter

    from las vegas, NV – Verified Buyer

    This is my second tumbler. I broke the first one by loading it with too much water. (Hint) We have problems with roaches getting in our compost and with the above ground composter there are none. It is very easy to use and does the composting in a short period of time.

    Very well built user friendly composter

    from Pflugerville, TX – Verified Buyer

    I'm very happy with the design and quality of this product,however,the assembly was excessive. My husband spent half a day putting it together. It comes with about 50 screws. So if you have someone who is willing to assemble it its a great tumbler. It's built well and spins perfectly. The large opening is easy to add and take out compost. And it locks in place easily so it doesn't move when scooping the compost.i love it! Hope it lasts a lifetime!

    from mountain view, AR – Verified Buyer

    It is a little hard to put together, not bad just take your time. But I love mine it sits up so I do not have to bend over to put stuff in it. I would recommend this one to anyone who is hobby farming or has a small veggie garden and you want to compost. This is ideal for that and it is easy to spin and empty.

    Difficult to Assemble

    from Lewes, DE – Verified Buyer

    This is a great composter - nice size and everything. The glitch is assembly; it is difficult. The instructions only show pictures and do not give dimensions of parts, so it's kind of a guess. We had to disassemble a couple of parts and start over to get it right. This is why I only rated it a four star product. Functionally, it's great but be prepared to take a while for assembly.

    Great product for composting

    from Brainerd, MN – Verified Buyer

    It wasn't complicated to put together. It is a nice large size and we have it set back from the house in our rural setting. Lots of wildlife in this area, including bears and so far it hasn't been an issue at all. Very pleased as it is exactly what we were looking for. Pros: Great value for the money. Like the ability to rotate the composter easily. Cons: None at this point.

    Five stars on the operation of the composter.

    from Caliente, NV – Verified Buyer

    Works just fine, good value for the $$$ spent. I would purchase it again. Pros: Great construction, this will last forever. Cons: This was literally a nightmare to assemble. I have assembled numerous DIY projects, nothing like this one. The instructions were not detailed enough. If it hadn't been for a "You Tube" video I would have never been able to assemble this project.
