Wasn’t sure if my 10 yr old chin was going to like it since he’s spent so many years on a wheel. We split our cage to welcome a female chin into the family, so she got the wheel since he didn’t spend much time in that part of the cage and ordered a saucer. Well, he took to it easily! The motion does make the saucer move in the cage and was scraping the cage, so I added a small rectangular ceramic dish as a spacer and voila! Silent running through the night! A sturdy and great product! Quick delivery too.
It works great for my gerbils! Love that it's all metal too!
My chins loved this wheel. Glad I got it. They love this and their normal wheel. All I can hear are some pitter patter of feet but the wheel itself makes no noise.
Hi! :) love the wheel! is there a safe way to keep it from sliding around in the cage? Thank you -Deborah C. B.
[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review Deborah. We’re glad to hear that you love the Treadmill Wheel. If the wheel is resting on a smooth surface it might slide around, but to help it stay in place you can add cage bedding or some fleece beneath the wheel, or Velcro strips to the bottom, or you can use zip-ties to ensure it stays in place. We hope this information helps!]
My degus love these things. Completely metal so there is no way for them to get chewed up. This is the second one of these I have bought because I bought another cage as well. My only complaint this time was the bearing system on the inside was loose and we had to fish them out and put it back together which wasn’t exactly easy. I don’t know if this issue was due to rough shipping and lack of packaging or if it happened when it was made, but we managed to get it back together. But still it’s a great product and a definite must buy. -Ashley M
