I am looking for a composter that holds 9 cubit feet, will not attract rodents (we have a lot of squirrels) and is easy to turn (I am 66 with a bad back). The tumblers seem to have problems with falling apart unless I get a really expensive one. I do not have a place to put the composter directly on the ground-it will have to go on cement. What would you recommend?

We do not have a specific listing of composters that would be best. A quick search on the internet brought up various composters in the size you are looking for. Not sure what you consider 'expensive'; one that is made well and last longer will probably cost a bit more. Some will be easier to tumble, some are off the ground as opposed to sitting on it directly. An internet search will help you find a style in the price range you have in mind.
