My chins love their new wheel! Very sturdy, completely silent, and I love that the bearings are enclosed, so dust, fur, and hay particles cannot get trapped and slow the wheel down like other wheels. My girls use this wheel way more than their old one! Nice wide running surface and an absolute breeze to mount also!
Great wheel, adaptable
I’ve been meaning to get one of these for my rats for a long time- 12” wheels aren’t quite big enough for my male rats who like to run, so this was a good option. It should be noted that the hooks are too big to fit the spacing in a Critter Nation’s bars when hung vertically, BUT by tilting them on an angle you can make it work, thanks to the thumbscrew on the bottom. So far, so good, and my rats are enjoying it!
Pros and Cons
Pros: Seems solid, well built, and a nice pink color. I also love that it's made in the USA. Cons: Completely out of alignment no matter what I do even after following the instructions to properly align it. At this price, it should be fully aligned and spin smoothly. Mine does jot. It wobbles and obviously is not aligned while spinning. The company tries to blame alignment issues on shipping, but I feel it should be aligned perfectly and well packaged to prevent alignment issues during shipping, especially at this price. Period. I attached it to a ferret nation cage. I added a zip tie to each hook that attaches to the cage to keep it secure. It sits pretty high in the cage. I feel like it should have a different way to attach to a cage to make it more likely to attach to a variety of cages, give the owner more options on where to put it in the cage, and to prevent possible injuries to a pet if they fall out of the wheel while running in it.
Not for hard runners
Wheel is large (had to pull up the side of my cage to get it in) and a little awkward to set up as the top hooks are heavier than the bottom fastener. As long as my chinchilla girl is lazy, it's quiet, but my girl can run hard. The wheel rattles the cage something awful so she can't be in the room with me when I try to sleep. Otherwise it's nice and sturdy.
my rats love this wheel!!
i just got the wheel yesterday and a few of my rats are already going crazy on it! it’s pretty quiet and the only thing i can really hear are their little feets on the wheel. the wheel fits great in my feisty ferret cage, though i had to swap out the small washer for a larger one. it’s very sturdy and if you’re considering buying it, just do it, it’s a fantastic wheel.
Yes it can be installed on a Critter Nation cage with a small amount of persuasion on the bars. I have had these wheels for almost 3 years now and so far they are great. The instruction sheet it comes with for balancing is important to follow. My hedgehogs jog on these great, we have them hang on the bars and then the base being plastic we just leave bottom fastener off. The Chinchillas in their Critter Nations do great with these as well but one is an aggressive runner and can hear the whole cage rattle, so it just depends on the chinnies mood if you hear it or not. I gently clean them with a water/vinegar mix and baby wipes, I never have gotten them fully wet and wouldn’t recommend that, they wipe clean very easy. I would buy again and recommend this wheel.
My Chinchies love it
This was super easy to install into the cage, hooks in from the top and screws in at the bottom on the back. It's not as quiet as I was hoping but it's not horribly loud either, kinda startles my cats, however, since they're not used to it. My chinchilla McFluffin uses it mostly and Chillbaca just uses it as a shelf, everybody's happy! Happy with the purchase, I think it was worth the price, and happy I could find it through chewy instead of some questionable site where it was way more expensive.
Critter nation installation
I’m sure this is a fantastic wheel, but it doesn’t seem like it can be installed in a critter nation cage. Someone asked that question previously and Chewy responded that “This Wheel is easy to install, remove, and sterilize in any cage. We recommend comparing the measurements of your cage to the measurements o f the exercise wheel. It is 14-inches in Diameter.” The wheel itself fits well in the cage, but can’t be installed due to the spacing of the bars. It needs to be made more obvious what cages this wheel can go in.
Worked great for awhile. Was very quiet, however, it has developed a wobble and now hits the side of the cage making it very loud. I have only had it a couple months. It’s too expensive to replace frequently.
I had the kaytee 12 inch wheel for my little Arya. It was horrible she would bounce on it so hard that it would knock against the side of the cage and keep us up all night even with several doors closed. I decided to bite the bullet and buy this one. Its AMAZING! Its so much better than I thought it would be. It's sturdy and built fantastically. It's SO QUIET and so easy to install. If you are having a hard time deciding on this wheel because of the price. Just do it. You will thank yourself late, I promise!
