My hedgehog is young and gross, and can't be bothered to stop running when he has to poop. He and his wheel have to be cleaned often, and other wheels are very awkward and frustrating to clean, sometimes more so than Herman himself. The design of this wheel, however, makes it easy to take apart and put back together. The running surface breaks away into a single strip that you can scrub down and dry off inside of a minute. The texture of the surface helps poo comes off easily. Moreover, it provides much needed traction for hedgehogs, who have soft, slippery little pads at the ends of their inexplicably long legs -- a sad excuse for feet bestowed by a cruel maker upon an animal that is already awkward and accident-prone, yet whose greatest joy in life is running real fast.
I digress. Cleaning other wheels often gets the rubber parts wet. Those are the parts that keep things quiet, and wetting them causes corrosion over time. So they eventually become not so quiet. With this wheel, nothing gets wet during cleaning that isn't supposed to, so things stay quiet. This is another hedgehog-specific benefit, since they are nocturnal and run throughout most of the night.
This product is about 10 bucks more than similar items, but the design makes it worth the price difference. If I had to pick one negative thing to say about this wheel, I would say that I'd like to have a choice of color. That is a very small complaint, because the functional benefits of this wheel far outweigh a small aesthetic drawback.
If you are trying to choose a "silent" wheel for your small animal, I recommend this one. Simply, it is a better product than the top two most comparable wheels.
The wheel is pretty quiet. I would not say silent, but it is pretty good. Softly noisy. The stand and wheel are well made. The wheel parts are durable. You can attach the wheel to some cages and remove the stand if you want. The wheel is safe for a rats tail which is very important and also will not catch or damage their little fingers either. The only thing I wish was that it had some way sift out little peas or dry food that sometimes ends up in the wheel when the animal runs in it. This adds to the noise. However, I can see this can be hard and to protect the feet and tail at the same time. For the money, I think this is a very good wheel and the design makes rodents interested in it to get in and actually use it. The company sent it well packaged and seemed to have a lot of great and unusual helpful pet products for more diverse pets and wildlife pets.
I particularly love this wheel because it does not have the same design as the Wodent Wheel, which has a design that has the risk of pinching and even catching skin while animals are using it. There are alleged deaths also associated with that design. I'm glad I was able to find a wheel with the front cover like this without those risks.
Also the separate sandpaper nail filer is AWESOME!! :)
