Another Lifetime Composter Survives a Bear Attack!

Here's the deal.  We're always telling you how tough our products are.  Sometimes we use fancy industry lingo like "double-wall high density polyethylene panels"  or  "exceeds BIFMA standards".  I'll be the first to admit, that can get more than a little boring -- even for me.  It's much more interesting and believable to hear real customer experiences.  

Know what?  We get tired of doing all the talking so we love hearing your stories about our products.  In fact, even we've been amazed with some of the recent "tough" stories our customers have shared with us.
Just this week, Michelle and Wayne T. of Granby, MA shared some fantastic photos of their Lifetime 65-Gallon Composter that survived a bear attack!  Yes, I said BEAR.  Yikes! 

"My wife and I recently purchased one of your compost tumblers. After about 2 weeks we woke up to find the tumbler on its side and about 6 feet from its original location. Apparently a bear had visited during the night and tried to get in. Your product held up very well and the bear's teeth only went through the outer wall. Our neighbor had an inferior tumbler which was destroyed. Thank you for your bear-proof product!"

After looking at these pictures of their Lifetime composter compared to their neighbor's composter that didn't fare so well, now you can easily see why we say our double-wall high density polyethylene panels are strong and durable!

(Surprisingly, this is not the first time our composters have gone head-to-head with a bear and won.  A few years ago, William S. from New Mexico let us know that his Lifetime 80-Gallon Composter survived a bear attack, too.  See his story and pictures here.)

And, remember Hurricane Irene last Fall?  Alison H. sure does! 

"I just wanted to share the resilience of your product. During Hurricane Irene a large 3ft diameter oak fell on our Lifetime Shed. It was smashed. I jokingly said to my husband do you think you can put it back together? Well he did. And here is the before and after photo.  We have shared this with our friends and family and they were amazed that it could be put back together."

Can you believe that? A Lifetime shed smashed by a tree and they could still put it back together!  Our engineers are definitely doing a happy dance now. :)

So, if you have an amazing story to share about your Lifetime product, let us know… and let other customers and potential customers know, too!  Simply send your story and email to pr@lifetime.com and we'll keep sharing more true Lifetime tough stories.  After all, a picture's worth a thousand words, right?

Utah's Historic Windy Day
Wow, what a week we just had. Lifetime is headquartered in Clearfield Utah. Clearfield is in North Davis County. Davis County, asyou may have heard on the national news, was the sight of some historically strong winds on Thursday, December 1. The mountains we have here typically shield us from things like tornadoes, but when the jet stream is just right, wind is forced up the Wasatch mountains and slams down on us. This only happens every 10 to 15 years. Early Thursday morning we woke up at my house to the fence missing, the trampoline missing, and flying debris. The winds were so strong that to go outside was dangerous as debris of all shapes and sizes was flying around. The National Weather Service said the winds reached up to 100 MPH. These are the same wind speeds you find in a category 2 hurricane. By the time it calmed...
Win TWO Picnic Tables for Your Summer BBQs!
This giveaway had ended.With backyard July 4th barbeques only a few weeks away, it's never too early to start planning the festivities. We want to join in the celebration fun too, so we are giving one lucky random winner the chance to seat their guests in style at a Lifetime Picnic Table this fourth of July! This isn't just any picnic table. This is the picnic table Lifetime invented in 1995 that swept the market and has been flying off shelves ever since. Why is it so popular? First, it has a blow-molded polyethylene tabletop that is maintenance free and easy to clean with a solid, one-piece surface so food and utensils can't fall through the cracks.But, what really makes it unique is that it quickly folds flat to store in the winter or to throw in the back of your truck to haul to the family reunion. If it's hard to envis...
