It’s empty in here!
This wheel is bliss compared to the noisy one he had before! The 28cm is a brilliant size for a syrian hamster, although my boy is still only little so he's finding it a bit difficult, but he can grow into it!
This is a great size wheel for syrian hamsters. A very good price for what it is and does the job nicely. Not the quietest of wheels; could be an issue if the hamster is in your bedroom. In my experience it does make a very loud knocking noise which can be heard from other rooms, but this is easily fixed by cable-tying the base to the roof of the cage which then allows it to spin freely. Easy to wipe out and clean as well, as the front plastic part can be easily removed. Overall would recommend.
When I got this wheel I saw that my Syrian couldn't turn it. I made sure all bedding was out of the way and then I realised that the stand attached to the wheel, was rubbing off it and it wouldn't turn. This was very annoying as I had to attach it to the bars of the cage which meant I had to take one of the levels out. If I had known the stand would do this I wouldn't have bought it.
It's a great wheel... but only when you suspend it upside down from the cage top. We cable-tied it to the bars at the top, and popped in a little step for our syrian to be able to get into it. When it was the right way round, it kept catching on the wire wheel base, and causing our little hamster to not be able to fully spin on it - it isn't made well.
It’s a good size for a Syrian hamster, I like the fact that I can bury the stand under the substrate to stop it tipping over. My hamster is only 8 weeks, so time will tell as he gets bigger, whether he can tip over. Would be nice to have a back up fastening to the side of the cage as my fear is he will tip over and become stuck. It runs very quietly. Disappointing there is no option to choose the colour that you want for your set up but other than that, no complaints and completely recommend.
I don’t have a problem with it at all, fantastic size, highly recommmend the bigger one, not sure what anyone means about it being ‘noisy’
I bought my wheel last year and love it! Perfect for a Syrian. I was hoping for a blue but I got all black and tbh now I prefer I did :) but yeah my hammie loves it and runs on it for hours literally hours.
Whilst I know others extol about this particular kind of wheel my experience over several years, compared to the Trixie wire mesh or wooden ones, is that these wheels last only a moderate time with my gerbils but even less with my Degus !! The l'il buggers seem to delight in how quickly they can destroy it! It's flimsy plastic, the front falls off once they've chewed the fasteners & it's unstable - too easily tips over. Hardly quiet either but I don't mind. Like to hear my furbabies busy.
I bought the 11 inch for my Syrian and she loves it. She would previously never use a wheel and as soon as I put this is she went straight on it! The only downside is that it spins a little weird, I can't really explain it, but it defintely doesn't seem to bother her. Not silent, but nice and quiet. I'd recommend this, especially for the price.
So a while back I bought a black/grey wheel for my Syrian hamster. I opted for the larger size as I had plenty of space for a wheel. It is absolutely fantastic! I've had it for quite a while and it's brilliant. It's easy to clean, it's a fantastic size, it is safe for my hamster and it's almost silent! The price is really quite low for such a good quality item and the delivery was on time. Overall extremely pleased with the item!
If you're on a budget, this is an excellent wheel. If, however, you have a bit more cash and silence is a significant concern, look elsewhere I've had both the 28cm (Syrian hamster) and 20cm (dwarf hamster) version. Both have a tendency to 'sink' on their axels and start rubbing, but this seems to be a bit hit and miss. If they start squeaking, use a little cooking oil to lubricate it. They can be attached to the cage bars - the stand just needs a firm tug to come off.
I was abit worried about buying the smaller size wheel for my hamster but when it arrived it fits perfectly in his cage (made a homemade billy cage from ikea) The price for it is great, (other wheels ive seen in Pet shops are either the same price or more for a small crappy wheel) and this one is silent. My hamster loves it... So happy days! :-) zooplus delivered it within 2/3 days, always a great service x
This wheel is a great size for my hamster. But It is very loud. and keeps me awake at night. So will be getting another new wheel - again.
Great wheel for the price, all 3 of my hamsters have this wheel in the small size, fine for them :)
When Mr Baggins starts his nightly expected journey, a soft rattle can be heard from his cage. Unfortunately, as the night progresses and he warms up, I would liken the noise to a tumble dryer spinning a brick. Not the quietest wheel, shall we say, but a good size and great value for money. He's certainly happy, even if my nights are no longer peaceful.
The 28cm wheel is absolutely fantastic for my Syrian, and fits perfectly in the IEKA detolf. He rarely plays with his other toys - can hardly get him off! However, the wheel does rattle quite a lot due to its large size, so I wouldn't reccomend this wheel if it's going to be used in your bedroom :)
The wheel was recommended but it's noisy, to have to spend more money for a quiet wheel. Hamster enjoys it though.
The bigger sized wheel (due to it's size) is actually quite flimsy and therefore quite loud as it rattles. At first the problem was worse due to the fact that my female Syrian is quite a wide hamster and i thought that it would be more comfortable for her to have the front off. I tried her with it with the front on again and the rattling is quite a lot better. Would really recommend this wheel- good sizes for hamsters and other small animals and good for the price
I was really pleased when I recieved the wheel but because I ordered it online, I couldn't get an accurate guess on how big the wheel was compared to my Syrian. Even though the measurements are there, I didn't bother because I just assumed that it would be fine. It is too big for a Syrian in my opinion so if your looking to buy this wheel, get the smaller size. Overall, really recomend it!
This is a great wheel and I got it at a good price however even the larger one is NOT suitable for rats, far too small and narrow
Both my hamsters weren't using there old wheels (a lot smaller than these) I bought them both the larger wheels and they spend all night, every night on them.. They love them :)
Unfortunately, it's a bit too big to fit into my cage (Working on getting a new one, was sure it would fit but when it arrived it didn't). But I've let my mouse play on it outside his cage. It makes the smallest amount of noise, and doesn't squeak at all. I highly suggest this wheel!
I brought the 28cm x 7cm wheel due to my large Syrian hamster outgrowing her 20cm. These wheels are great value for money although can be noisy. I can never get my ham out of it due to loving it soo much. Have also recommended this product to friends.
This is such a great wheel, I ordered the largest one for my Syrian hamster, he loves it and it's so quiet, I have ordered two more for our other Syrians. Zoo plus is the best price I've found for this too
This wheel is quiet and a good size for my small syrian hamster. It is stable and my hamster enjoys using it, though it isn't quite as sturdy as a wodent wheel, it is good value for money.
Ordered this for my hamster cage before getting my little boy Loki. He decided he liked the wheel on the first day, and uses it for hours every day. Think it is his favourite thing apart from his bed. Isn't very noisy, so doesn't disturb you when he is in there. Have ordered another one for his playplen
Our Syrian loves this wheel, the 28cm wheel is just perfect for him. He was a rescue hamster and had a much smaller wheel previously, which were really straining his back. The wheel was a great price compared to other wheels this size on the market.
i bought this to replace the tiny wheels that come with my cages. i purchased it with my savic cage, knowing in advance the wheel it comes with is too small. i got the 20cm one for my young syrian as this is suitable for most hamsters. but will be watching for back arching as she grows incase i need to upgrade to the 28cm one. great product
The wheel is really quiet and my Syrian hamster, Buttons loves it and spends hours having fun without disturbing me since his cage is in my room.
Brought the 8'' wheel. My Syrian hamster is only 13 weeks old but already in need of the next size up. Also it was quiet for the first couple of weeks but is now very rattly and noisy.
After reading a lot of reviews I decided to go for the 28cm wheel for my syrian, she absolutely loves it and is never out of it! It is big though, but I have taken the shelves out of my cambridge cage as the wheel is top priority in the cage. I did wonder whether to go for the smaller wheel but the last thing I want is my hamster uncomfortable using something too small for her. The wheel is very quiet, I have positioned it higher up to avoid it going against the cage tray (this causes a noise, and slows hammy down!) and so far so good!
I've been through a few wheels with my Chinese hamster, she doesn't like silent spinners for some reason, loved her wonderland wooden wheel but it was really hard to clean as she pees in her wheel, a lot! Finally found one she loves to use & I can easily clean with this one so we're both happy now! It is noisy compared to other wheels I have but not such an annoying noise that I can't live with it. It took her less than two days to figure out she could could chew the twirly sticker off the front so I had to remove that, no big deal but maybe something to watch out for as it's probably not good to ingest.
I ordered this large wheel for my 2 rats. They love it and it doesn't seem to make any annoying noises. It probably wouldn't be big enough for large man rats but perfect for my smaller lady rats :)
I ordered the wheel after my old silent spinner broke. I thought I would buy the bigger size as they can never be to big. When in came in the post ( that was very quick) I opened it and was surprised how big it really was. They love it and is better that it is bigger. I would recommend this for any Gerbil and Rodent owner. It is an easy clean wheel and silent. Good quality and five stars.
I'm looking after my Sister in law's hedgehog and she had this tiny wheel, way too small for her and soooo noisy!!! I bought this one and I can't believe how quiet it is!! And the size is great:) she loves it!!
This wheel is a Trixie Small Pet Exercise Wheel and is in general, a great wheel. Pros: Its a huge wheel great for a Syrian Hamster, the price was not bad for £8.99, and the overall appearance and style of the wheel is great too! Cons: For some weird reason the wheel when spinning scuffs against the black metal stand and makes a fair bit of noise and i am not sure if its just how the product is made or it was damaged in transit? However apart from that its a great wheel for i would say all species of hamster, but a really good size wheel for a Syrian and would recommend it to all rodent owners.
I bought this wheel for my syrian hamster, she loves it! The price is excellent and the wheel is pretty much silent. This wheel is a perfect size for syrian hamsters and would make a great addition to any cage!
Bought this wheel 2 months back for my then 4 month old male syrian hamster, Chester, as his previous wheel was far too noisy. I bought this under the impression that the wheel was silent, but Chester proved that was nonsense. The wheel is very noisy (and I have it on the stand and it squeaks the odd time and rattles almost constantly). All though, for the cheap price of €8, you really can't go wrong. He loves his wheel and is on it almost constantly. It's also easy to clean so that's a plus. Once the hamster isn't in your room (and mine is) the noise shouldn't be a problem. Was cheap and easy to clean, but despite what it says is relatively noisy, but other than that it was quite the bargain and arrived within 2 days of purchase, so I'm impressed and will be ordering again in the near future for my fur- babies.
just received this today and my Chester didn't go on his old wheel but put this in his new cage and he was on it in seconds :D so pleased with it, good price and faster than expected delivery
Really good wheel, no noise & nice and big for my syrian. Really pleased with the product and especially for how cheap it is!
