Apollo Wooden Composter Natural 0.9 x 0.9 x 0.6m
The composter is good value for money, holds a lot of compost and is easy to assemble. I would buy another - but not for home delivery.
The package that was delivered was damaged - most pieces and at both ends. I took it to our local Screwfix and the staff there helpfully replaced the damaged parts using a stock item (parts of which were also damaged).
My advice is to collect the composter from the store and to check each piece of wood before leaving the store.

So good I bought another
We've a number of trees in the garden and every year we have millions of leaves to compost. These composters are easy to put together and fill. I ended up buying 2 but put two together to have 1 tall composter which means it will work better.

Poor design and components
I have an allotment and thought I was doing myself some good buying this item!!
First off the item delivered to store was damaged as the wooden slot joints were broken so I didn't even remove it from store and asked for a replacement for the damaged one. This was sent out next day and on receipt noted that the second one was also damaged in a similar way.
Fortunately the guys at screwfix hadn't returned the first damaged one and therefore manage to make me a good one out of the 2..
I installed the composter on my allotment and made a lid for it. I also bought the liner for it and lined the bin before adding material to compost. It will be interesting to see if it stands the test of time. Watch this space....
