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! :)

First, I should say that we ordered a chinchilla wheel and it is a BIG hit around our house. Not only with our chins, but also with my 12 year old daughter who got it for her birthday. What makes this company even more special than most out there is their kindness and generosity. I contacted them to ask about shipping and said it was for my daughter's birthday. They included a pretty piece of birthday tissue paper on top of everything so she saw that as she opened the box and then they also included a little birthday baggy with some extra treats for her chinchillas. She LOVED it!!! It was one of the biggest surprises from her birthday!!! THANK YOU for being so kind and making this such a great gift for my daughter. We will definitely buy from you again!!!!!!!!!!!!
The wheel is very sturdy and quiet our chinchilla is loving it so far. I wish the timeframe we had to wait wasn’t soo long, and then it also took extra long for the shipping. Other than that no complaints here. Would buy again
I have purchased a total of 4 wheels now for my chinchillas through PetRev and each and every one have exceeded my expectations. When you have 12 critters that like to run miles on a daily basis, having this wheel is a must! Easy to install and my chinchillas figured it out quickly.
The wheel is super well made and quiet. My chin loves it. Definitely recommend.
Pet Revolution is awesome. Tiff and Kurt have wonderful customer service and Tiff always replied to my e-mails promptly. Although they had lots of orders to fulfill, the wait was worth it. My sweet Benji boy is in heaven! He wouldn't even wait for it to be completely attached before trying to start running. He's broken 2 wheels already and this one is definitely much better than any I've seen in store or online! And it is virtually silent, not to mention simple to assemble onto the cage. I would highly recommend this product and Pet Revolution in general!
