Default Help With Silen Spinner

So I recently learned that the silent spinner can be very dangerous, even deadly. I have asked my mom to get a new wheel, and she said she will try when she gets more money. So for now, what can I do to Herbie's current wheel to make it safer? Also, what are the differences between the Carolina Storm Wheel and the Carolina Storm Bucket Wheel? Which is more preferred?

The bucket wheel is smaller and comes in several colors. The CSW is much larger and only comes in clear. I have a few CSW's that have a few scratches, you can have one for free if you'd like but you would need to pay the shipping(9.28).

That's a very generous offer, Larry. There is a huge reason why I suggest you whenever someone is looking for a wheel.

Agreed, Desiree! Larry's fantastic & my favorite person for recommending for wheels. I still have my CSW (and my wheel from Reaper), but if I end up with a small hog in the future, I'll probably order another bucket wheel, Lily loved hers!

That is so sweet Larry! So exactly what are the measurements for the wheel you are willing to give to me? The breeder told me that any wheel has to at least be 12in., but you are a breeder too, so whatever you think works is fine. I'm so glad that I am surrounded by such nice people. I will tell my mom as soon as I get back to her house. I am at my dads house until later tonight.

Also, may I ask how long you have been breeding? My mom will most likely say that people on the internet donr know what they are doing and to listen to the breeder I got Herbie from. I just need comparison so she knows who is more experienced. She is very stubborn.

The inside to inside diameter of the wheel is 12 inches. I have been breeding for over 8 years, my herd has always been small, producing 4 litters or so per year.

Then the size is perfect. You must be very experienced if you have been breeding for that long!

Ok she said that it was ok! Can you send shipping details and instructions please? We don't quite know how we are going to complete the order. Thank you so much. After hearing about his current wheel and all the pictures, I have become quite paranoid. When I was coming home, I had a terrible feeling something had happened. I opened my door and sighed in relief to see nothing had happened. Now I can relax and know that my baby can exercise safely.
