Questions & Answers

22 Customer Questions

how do I clip the wheel to my hamster cage
Answer by ChewyAug 12, 2019
The standing wire must first be removed. Once removed, you will place the clip between the cage bars and turn to secure in place.

Is this a suitable size for a large Syrian hamster?
Answer by ChewyDec 05, 2019
Either of these wheels is suitable for a larger Syrian hamster. Smaller and standard Syrian hamsters are better suited to the 8.5 inch size, while multi-hamster cages may benefit more from a larger wheel.

Is it quiet?
Answer by ChewyFeb 22, 2018
This exercise wheel is quiet.

What are the exact dimensions of the 8.5 inch wheel (height, width, depth)?
Answer by ChewyJun 21, 2018
This 8.5 inch wheel measures 8.5 Length x 5 Width x 9.5 Height inches and the 12 inch wheel measures 12.25 Length x 6.75 Width x 13.75 Height inches.

LOUD & Flimsy waste of money

I bought 3 of these wheels for my mice and the quality has declined SO much since I bought these years ago. The plastic is cheap and flimsy, but the worst part is that these are SO loud I can hear them down the hallway. They constantly squeak.

Good wheel

My very large hamster loves it. It is a bit loud, but that might also be because he is so big and runs very fast on it. Overall though, we like it and it was perfect for him.

Good for rat ladies

Replaced our silent runner from exotic nutrition as after so many years it kept coming loose. This one is louder, but not so much so that I can hear it while sleeping in a room over. They don't seem to want to chew it much, either, which is great

Works Well, Noisy

It's pretty much exactly as described. My only complaint is that it's pretty noisy. My cage doesn't have wire sides, so I'm using the stand it comes with. It's very loud at night.

I think he will like it

This wheel was a lot bigger than I expected, I got it for my hedgehog. It was really easy to attach to the cage and seems to be a very durable plastic. Easy to wipe off if necessary too. Fits perfectly and spins fine. Anything bigger than a hedgehog I would not recommend for though. It says for chinchillas but this is wayyy too small for them.

Awful Product

This wheel is so loud and noisy. It literally is worse than nails on a chalkboard. I rarely keep it in my hamsters cage because it keeps the whole house up at night..

not recommended for chinchilla

It’s not stable enough for chinchilla. Size wise, barely suite for adult chinchilla
