Great wheel for hamsters!
So I bought this wheel for my hamster and she loves it. It does not bend her back, and it looks good in any setup. The only thingsI want to say, are 1.it is not silent. This is not a problem for me, because I like knowing that she is awake from hearing the wheel, but if you are a light sleeper, I don’t recommend this. 2. I do not think this is ok for gerbils. It is waayyyy to soft and could easily be chewed and could potentially hurt them. This is much better for hamsters, not gerbils.
great for gerbils and small syrian hamsters
this wheel is the perfect size for our baby gerbils, and they absolutely love it. when it comes to hamsters, it would only be big enough for a smaller male syrian, or any dwarf hamster, and would be much too small for a female syrian. you will know if the wheel is too small for your pet if the rodent cannot run on the wheel while keeping its entire back flat/straight. the only issue with this wheel is that its not exactly silent. when i first got this for my hamster, it was extremely loud and squeaky while he was running on it. we also had the same problem when we bought this for our gerbils. the sound isnt "permanent" though, after the wheel has been used once or twice, then there will be a low rumbling sound that is barely noticeable unless your really listening for it.
It does what it is supp to do but man is it noisey! Unless u keep your critters in room other than bedroom, i recommend the silent wheels. We attached this 1 directly 2 the cage, i think that made it even noisier!
So far my chinchilla likes this wheel a lot. It's the perfect size for her, too. She has broken 2 others. I hope this one last longer!
Actually, ZERO stars, not very good at all
Mounted to cage and it was horrible. Squeak, Rattle, Rattle.... Put back on wire mount, same thing. So now it's time to modify...Turned back washer around (it has 3 balls that rub on back of wheel). Now just rattle, rattle. Put a homemade plastic washer on axle, then a little bit of vegetable oil on axle, put wheel back on. Then I made sure plenty there's of room between the axle mount on back side, and side of cage. Now it is acceptable, KIND OF, but I should have purchased ANY other brand wheel. Not happy at all with this item....
Don’t buy ! It’s too noisy !
I had returned it because they sent a wrong color , it’s not match others toys in the cage. Most important is this wheel was very loud, it made too much noisy !
Not good for chewers
Bought this for our chinchilla and he loved it but he chewed it so now the wheel comes off when he’s running so we had to throw it away. We only had it for a couple weeks.
Very poor quality. Junk.
Bought this 8” wheel for our new hamster as it was a little larger than our 6.5 inch wheel which was too small and flexed her back too much. What a disappointment. It squeaks and rubs while the hamster runs on it. As hamsters are nocturnal, this causes obvious problems with the human sleeping in the same room. Love the bedding from Kaytee but this is a piece of junk. The 6” no name brand wheel was far superior.
Great for Syrians! <3
my Syrian long haired hamster nugget absolutely loves it! and he’s very big and it’s great quality it’s semi loud but it’s a hamster wheel it’s kinda supposed to make noise, but he is going crazy and absolutely adores it! :)
depends on your preference
The 12in wheel is actually REALLY big and perfect for a Syrian hamster. butttt it’s quite noisy but besides that it’s a great sturdy wheel.
