Yes, Jimmy, Lifetime 80 gallon.  I bought mine used and I like the quality.  I don't know if their newest product will be as sturdy, as companies tend to get cheaper or flimsier over the years.  I keep watching Craig's List for a second one.  As though I have any room!  Day 13 with this batch.  It was up around 160*F for days and is now down to 145*F.  I do a series of turn-open-turn-open-turn-open twice a day.  As you can see in this photo taken today, the horse pucks are still mainly intact but they have been pasteurized so I can use the material in all of the veggie beds.

I pull material in the sides up into the middle so it gets its turn at higher temps. I don't expect black gold fines. I want the material to be pasteurized and get all fuzzy as it cools. Then it can be used as top dressing, early amending or store in the 3'x3'x3' compost cage until needed. Composter recommendations - Page 2 Compos12

It looks as if the newer models are just about all touting the dual chamber units. I wont buy one.
I'll keep my eye on Criaigs. I returned my tumbler today. I would have kept it but it kept rolling off rollers
They had a great product years ago...

Mine has a shiny plastic finish. In one of these it looks like matte black.
