DRD Rodent Shop ® Aluminum Running wheel for rodents!
The DRD Rodent Shop ® Aluminum Running Wheel is a 100% silent, gnaw resistant and flexible running wheel for rodents. The running wheel is made of 1st class high-quality aluminum, expertly finished and has no less than two high-quality ball bearings.
The tread has a light and pleasant structure, for good grip. The surface is also smooth, so that it is easy to clean.
The stand is large and very stable. It is also possible to fix the stand in a wooden base with a screw. This can be useful if the running wheel has to be mounted on a wooden platform.
The aluminum running wheel has a particularly long service life with a two-year warranty on the ball bearings. In addition, ball bearings are also available separately. In principle, the running wheel lasts a lifetime.
The running wheel has a particularly high and heavy quality and cannot be compared to standard running wheels. In particular an absolute solution for Gerbils, Degus and Chinchillas!
Aluminum Running Wheels v / s Wooden Running Wheels
We look at the purchase costs of running wheels in a timeframe of 2 years. With a hamster, we assume that a running wheel has a lifespan of up to 6 months. With a Gerbil we give a wooden running wheel for a maximum of 2 months and for a Chinchilla, a wooden running wheel is not recommended in its entirety and if it would be used, the replacement costs would run out, given the life expectancy of a chinchilla. The same also applies to Degus.
As can be seen in the comparison, an aluminum running wheel is in many cases a better investment than a wooden running wheel. For a single hamster, an aluminum exercise wheel is not always more favorable, but in practice we see that hamster owners often welcome a new resident after a farewell, and then an aluminum exercise wheel pays off.

Cleaning the Aluminum Running Wheel
Aluminum does not rust, but must be cleaned gently. Cleaning is very easy due to the smooth surface. The running wheels need a gentle cleaning. It is best to clean it with a bio aluminum cleaner. Spray lightly, let it sit for a while and then wipe with a slightly damp soft cloth. Never keep under water, the ball bearings are not waterproof. If water gets to the ball bearings, they become stiff.
Prachtig looprad; mooi materiaal, superstil! Eindelijk een degelijke kwaliteit en een geschikte maat voor mijn chinchilla's. Ze hebben een paar weken nodig gehad om te wennen aan het materiaal en de beweging, maar nu sjezen ze vrolijk op volle vaart door het rad!
Even slikken bij de prijs, maar dat istie uiteindelijk echt waard! Opknagen kan bij deze niet en ze gaan er heel veel plezier van hebben!
