Our handmade bucket wheels are perfect for hedgehogs! The smooth running surface is safe for little hedgie feet, and the design is superior to store-bought wheels in every way - sturdier, much easier to clean, and absolutely silent. (And unlike some commercial options, when we say "silent", we mean it!)
The tilt can be adjusted forward and back, and there are several pre-drilled height settings in addition to the default. With the correct upkeep, these bucket wheels can easily last the full lifespan of a hedgehog, and then some.
Our 11" wheels are also currently the ONLY non-commercial hedgehog wheel verified to accommodate ALL sizes - even the largest of hedgehogs (up to 1000g tested so far). Our 10.5" bucket wheels are ideal for smaller/average sized hedgehogs.
This listing includes a bucket wheel AND litter tray (default size, as shown in photo; XL tray can be purchased separately).

Product dimensions (approximate):
● Diameter: 10.5" or 11" (depending on the color chosen)
● Running surface: 5" wide
● Total height: 12"
● Base: 7"x10"
● 1" sides
These items are handmade by a home business; therefore the exact dimensions may vary slightly. Minuscule sizing variations are not a defect.
Please also keep in mind that these are all hand-made to order, and so may vary slightly in many ways. There may be wobble to the wheel (which does not effect function) and there may be scratches or rub marks from part fitting. Every wheel is unique!

Like any mechanical device, a little maintenance is sometimes necessary to ensure longevity and ideal function. A detailed maintenance sheet is included with every wheel, for reference information about cleaning, care of the hardware and bearings, and troubleshooting of minor problems that may arise (with a few video links for visual assistance). We are always available to assist, and can send a copy of the sheet if you misplace it!
Wheels may have a portion of the printed manufacturer safety info on them.
