I use a garden fork to turn my stuff when it's half full, but as I'm careful to layer green and brown waste it does not need much turning.
I find 3 daleks suits me. One with fresh stuff added each day, one full and 'cooking', and one ready for use. I usually take some out of the top with a spade then remove the bin and put the contents in my ballbarrow, to be moved round the garden where needed. Any twiggy bits go back in at the bottom of the empty bin to rot a bit more.
