List Price $27.49

Exotic Nutrition's new 12" Silent Runner wheel is recommended for sugar gliders, male rats, and other similar small animals (not suggested for chewing animals). The axle-free construction eliminates the dangerous center axle that many pet running wheels have, reducing the risk of tail entanglement and spine injuries. The Silent Runner dual ball bearing design ensures the wheel runs smooth and quite, unlike many of the annoying sqeaky wheels on the market. You'll love the pet-safe all metal stand, built to last! Wheel size: 12" wheel diameter, 3.5" wide track,  4" diameter openings, approximately 13" tall on stand.

Check out some of our great Silent Runner accessories too (sold separately)! The Cage Attachment allows you to save cage floor space by attaching the wheel to the wire wall of a cage. Sandy Trimmer tracks provide an easy alternative for trimming nails!

PROPER MAINTENANCE: Your Silent Runner wheel should be cleaned regularly. Disassemble the wheel and clean all parts with warm soapy water, rinse, and allow to air dry completely. Do not submerge bearings in water! Make sure to dry the bearings thoroughly as inadequate drying may lead to the bearings seizing. Place a few drops of mineral oil on each bearing, reassemble the wheel, and reinstall on stand or cage mount.

NOTE: It is important that the bearings are oiled on a regular basis (once per month minimum). Silent Runner wheels are dishwasher safe (top rack only) but exposure to water should be limited. Running tracks are textured on one side for secure grip. Assemble tracks so textured side of track is facing inwards. If you neglect to maintain your Silent Runner wheel properly, the bearings may become corroded and seize, which can cause the wheel to unscrew from the stand or cage attachment when your pet is running in the wheel. If this happens, you will need to replace the bearings. See parts section for replacement bearings.

Bought this for Ziva, my Syrian hamster as the other wheels and flying saucers I had kept moving around and made quite some noise. She is a runner! And since we share the same room, we had to come up with a solution that lets her run all night while I get to sleep. This wheel is awesome so far. If I'm super quiet I might hear her paws a little bit. I also think she loves the size of the wheel since she doesn't have to bend her spine. She still makes this wheel move around a bit but not as much as the other ones before.
