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?

How to Make A Waterproof Banner in Minutes
Sometimes I just amaze myself with how stinkin creative I am! Just kidding. But, I must say though, I am pretty tickled with the clever idea I came up with last week. Our neighborhood was having a community garage sale, and two days before the sale, the HOA president agreed with my suggestion to hang a banner on the fence at the entrance of the subdivision to help advertise the sale. We are located right behind a school so lots of parents turn around in our subdivision to drop-off/pick-up their children. So, we wanted the banner to be out on Thursday and Friday to catch the school traffic. Since I was the one to suggest a banner, I felt obligated to volunteer to check on banner pricing. Unfortunately, a one-day turnaround was not going to work in our favor, unless we wanted to pay through the nose. ...which we didnt want to ...
Will It Tip? Testing the Stability of a Lifetime Manta Kayak
In my last blog post, I showed you how a tandem Lifetime Manta Kayak compares in size to other kayaks. Today, I want to show you a little about the stability of this kayak. Last month my family tested the Manta Kayak for several days on Lake Erie. When I say family, I mean everyoneme, my husband, my kids, my nieces, my brother, my uncles, and my mom and dad. As you can see in the photos, we paddled the Manta in pretty much every weight combination and seating combination possible. The Lifetime Manta Kayak has a 500lb weight capacity and we tested it to its limits. We paddled it with one person, two people, three people and even four people! And, guess what? It didn't tip!The Lifetime Manta Kayak,orYellow Bananaas we now call it,is unbelievably stable. Even when one person would get on or off the kayak with others still sittin...
