  1. Mantis CT08002 Mobile Composter Rolls Direct to the Garden I love this thing! Yes, it has baffles on the inside to help break up blobs ‘o’ compost. Yes, it has a sturdy frame and rolling wheels. I park it near the back door to quickly pop in the contents of my counter-top kitchen composter. Yes, the door easily latches and unlatches. No, I haven’t been paid to say this. I have a Mantis roto-tiller, and decided to stick with the brand. I’m glad that I did.

  3. We ordered this through amazon due to free shipping. The manufacturer had it for the same price but added around $40 shipping. That decision cost us about a weeks time. We met the UPS delivery vehicle and upon seeing the box we knew it had been opened. The staples that close the top were missing and it had been taped closed with clear tape. The wheels were missing and parts of the frame were missing. As those would have been difficult to fall out on their own, it was obvious to us that someone had taken them out. Not pleased. We called the manufacturer and they were very responsive, sending us the missing parts for free.As to the unit itself; this one replaces one we purchased back in 1998. The old one was finally falling apart. We liked the old one and that’s why we went with this one. It is very close to the old one with a few slight changes. The new door latch is an improvement (we hope). The old door could (and sometimes did) open when being turned when there was a lot of compost in it. One change I’m concerned about is the door hinge is now plastic where the old one was steel. I have a feeling it’s not going to last as long.Mantis recently bought the company that made the old version we had. I don’t know if some of the changes are theirs or if the original company had made the changes over the years.Bottom line, we loved the old one and are looking forward to years of compost from this one. One of the complaints others have made is that the pre-drilled holes for the screws are too small and need to be drilled out more. That is a valid complaint. I didn’t have much trouble putting it together but I did have to drill out the holes some.Overall, a good product and if this one lasts as long as the other one, we’ll be getting another one in 15-20 years.P.S. I frequently get a review request from amazon about shipping. I was looking forward to getting one this time and it didn’t come. I think I know why.
