Pet Revolution® Wheel details:
1. Size: Wheel is 16" diameter with a textured running track just under 4". The 16" diameter is needed for the safety and health of their spines while running, for optimum outstretch like in nature. If you have a chinchilla, we do NOT recommend any wheel under 15" for this very reason. We also do not recommend a wheel for any chinchilla under 6 months of age.
2. The pan is made from Galvanized Steel. It is safe if your animal tries to chew it, unlike plastic. We have found that they may try to chew it once, then after no luck will give up on attempting to chew on it again. That is the beauty of a metal wheel vs plastic. Plastic wheels are extremely dangerous and toxic to chewing small animals and can lead to a Vet visit for internal blockages or death. We do not recommend any plastic in cages!
3. Has the minimal amount of space between the cage and wheel (1.5"), so animals can not get stuck back there and the wheel does not droop.
4. Was designed as lightweight as possible (2Lb 10.5oz). We have the lightest wheel on the market. This is important as some wheels are too heavy and break cage welds.
5. Our design is built with strength and stability. TWO metal plates brace to the pan and a THIRD plate is used for mounting and spreading the weight on the cage wire. This is very important, so there is no lag and your wheel does not droop. That can cause your pet to fall off the wheel while running.
6. Our bearing mechanism does NOT require any additional tightening or loosening of bolts. Your wheel comes fully assembled and ready to go. Your wheel is free spinning from the get go. Free spinning is what any pet would need to not injure themselves and to run properly and naturally.
7. Our bearing system is what makes our wheel truly SILENT. We only use Top of the Line ABEC-7 bearings, which are whisper silent and FREE SPINNING. These bearings are meant for high speed/High RPM applications, so they will last years.
8. You will not need to buy additional bearings for this wheel, it is completely MAINTENANCE FREE.
In our Wheel design, we only use the BEST components, no matter the cost. We do not cut any corners, when it comes to the safety of your pets. Every wheel is handmade in house with precision drilling and assembly. Each and every order gets the care and attention to detail it deserves.
Every wheel comes with a special treats for your furbaby! :D <3
If you have any questions, just shoot us a message! We LOVE getting to meet all our wonderful new customers! :D
-All of our wheels are cage mount ONLY. They all have the same bearing mechanism. The only difference is the pans:
-16"x 3.8" Galvanized: This is the wheel in the listing. It is the more affordable option, recommended for chinchillas and prairie dogs.
-14"x 4" Aluminum: High strength aluminum alloy. Better tier pan. This is the smallest possible diameter we would recommend for a smaller chinchilla. This size if good for rats and degus, as well. If you have any questions about which size is best for your specific animal and their size, please feel free to message us. We are happy to help!
-12"x 4" Aluminum: High strength aluminum alloy. Better tier pan. Recommended for hedgehogs, small degus, mice, smaller rats.
-12"x 3" Aluminum: High strength aluminum alloy. Better tier pan. The only difference in this pan and the 12"x 4" is this running surface is 3".
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR WHEEL:
We DO recommend that your wheel is placed on the shorter side of your cage, since that will hold the most stability. :)
We also recommend for chinchillas, that dust baths are done outside the cage to extend the life of your wheel (bearing). Make sure dust baths in the cage are not done directly above the wheel.
Please be aware that if you are putting the wheel on a bottom floor, where they can pee down on it, an easy solution would be to put a ledge above the mechanism. Animals constantly peeing onto the bearing could cause it to gunk up and start to make noise. Check out our Metal ledges if you need one added to your order. We can combine shipping for you and make a bundle deal! <3
You can wipe down the metal with a damp cloth. Do not submerge the wheel in water. :)
HOW TO ASSEMBLE YOUR NEW WHEEL:
VERY SIMPLE! :D Just butt the mechanism up to the cage wall, insert the included hardware through the holes and secure with the washers and wingnuts on the other side. Bam, all done!
We also found a GREAT solution to those flimsier cages. If you take a solid piece of wood or metal and place it the width of the cage (from corner to corner) that will help stabilize your wheel! We can always make one for you, as well! :)

Couldn’t believe it, but the wheel is actually silent! Chunk, our chinchilla, absolutely loves it! Thanks so much!
My two chins love this wheel and I may need to get another one because they both love it so much. They are happy and loving how smooth and quiet it is. I was also happy to receive treats for my two little guys. They loved the alfalfa cubes and apple wood sticks. Thank you so much!
