Not worth the money

Might work well with light fluffy materials, but with denser matter I was only able to take slight advantage of the first set of wings. I've never been able to push (stab) the aerator in any further. And it requires a good hard stab.

Also, the second set of wings gets stuck in the folded position, so it doesn't grab onto anything.

For most composting applications, I recommend a crank twist type aerator.

Please record better video

The product is very solid and well designed. I watched the short video, but it doesn't show both the hand positions and the tool operation at the same time.

I'm sure it's a no-brainer, but I would like to know how to use it most efficiently.

Love it!

We used to use a small pitchfork to turn our compost, but it was awkward to bend over our deep bin. This aerator is easy to use and works great. Also, easier on our backs.
