There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There is a tiny gap that barely allows a fit on the hamster cage metal bars, then it caused damage by trying to fit it on. Now that I had to take needle nose pliers and bend the cage back into shape and the wheel is hung. I can hear INCREDIBLEY LOUD wheel rattle coming from the other room with the door shut. I will NOT be able to sleep like this. I should not loose sleep over a inferior product :-(
On the other hand the hamster is REALLY having a party on the the thing so I can’t give the worst review.
After installing it we found it to be incredibly loud, not squeaky but a very loud rumble that you can hear in the next room and downstairs. So off to youtube to find some hacks... we decided on the packing tape/oil hack. To do this you use a pair of pliers and pinch the tip of the axle to pop the wheel off. Then you take a piece of clear packing tape and wrap it around the axle and put a thin layer of veggie/olive/mineral oil on that.. reassemble and hope for the best.
It worked. It's not completely silent but we can all sleep now.
Lessons learned... if you want an inexpensive hamster wheel that is safe and comfortable for your hamster, but that you'll have to finish engineering, this is fine. But if you want something that works well right out of the box, keep looking. Get one of the silent spinner types.
For us, this is a temporary wheel. We'll be making a bin cage and using a 12" silent spinner for our syrian as he gets bigger.
Edit: Update, our packing tape hack only kept it quieter a night or two, so we tried putting a rubber band around the back of the axle, which is another hack that's been suggested, again, not much difference.
The shipping was very fast, it came 3 days before expected and the wire stand was already attached to the wheel so there was no 'set up'
The wheel I used before getting the 12in one was also a comfort wheel so I already knew what to expect noise level wise.
These wheels are NOT silent. But they are not loud either! You can hear the wheel spinning on its axis but thats it. (If it's really rattling around I suggest tying some string around the axis so the wheel rests on it more tightly)
I've used silent spinners and saucers and the comfort wheel is by far my favorite!
Update: so this wheel is MUCH noisier then my last comfort wheel. It squeaks SO loudly! My hamsters tank is in the basement and I can hear her wheel from the second level.

he wheel it's self is great but it's advertised as safe for chinchillas, which is false advertising. But I would recommend it for large pet rats as it is more suitable for them than chinchillas.
If the wheel wasn't falsely advertised as chinchilla safe I would have given it more stars, but their false advertising could easily affect the health of many a novice chinchilla owner who doesn't have the support of more knowledgeable owners like I do.
But overall - there is NO perfect hedgehog wheel on the market, so I will probably soon make my own DIY wheel.
She loves this wheel and it fits in her cage just fine. However, it is not silent, not even close, but none of the wheels we've had seem to be - starting to think it silent doesn't exist.
Overall good product, would recommend!
