CFT Systems

Parts To Build Your Own CFT

You’re not just getting a machine

When you buy a Wormgear CFT, you’re getting a complete package – carefully packed components, detailed assembly instructions, operating guidelines, and unlimited technical support.

Your success is important to us and we want to be a part of it with you.

Let’s get it right the first time.

Continuous flow vermicomposting systems must endure the stresses of weight, moisture and cutting resistance – conditions which quickly degrade do-it-yourself CFTs and the competitors systems.

If your CFT fails, you pay three times.

Once for the cost of emptying tons of vermicompost from your system. Another time for the cost of repair. And yet another time for the lost revenue in the following weeks while you restart your system.

Do it right from the start.

See what a system from Wormgear can do for you, and give yourself years of worry-free operation.  Contact us today to see Wormgear CFT is right for you.

Hudson Soil Company

Eileen Banyra

“From our first call with Michigan SoilWorks, we felt we had a partner. While only our first year in production, the equipment has performed as expected and is rugged and well designed.

Dan is knowledgeable, attentive, and responsive and he has made himself available to reply to all of our start up questions. As our vermicompost business grows, we will return to MSW for our future equipment needs.”
