I use one of those aerators with the folding 'wings' on the end. It saves a lot of turning, which I find hard on my (already) sore back. You just push the metal pole into the compost, wiggle it about a bit then pull it back out again. The wings open up as you pull the pole back out, bringing compost with it. Works a treat.
