Does anyone know if the wodent wheel can be attached to the side of the cage or does it have to use the stand?

Wodent wheels can be attached, but it's no where near as simple as it is with a SS. Basically, lots of cable ties or brute force :lol:

I much prefer Silent Spinners.

I have both here - equally enjoyed. Silent Spinners are easier to clean so they get my vote. :D

It was my first choice but then read some reviews which said that it comes apart where it snaps together and some animals got cut on it. Has anyone here had this trouble with it? The silent spinners that is.

I have an 11" wheel for Syrian hamsters and wouldn't give it to my girlie rats so in my opinion yes it is too small.

I love my silent spinner wheel. Even my old girl with HLD can get in and out of it easily as long as I attach it to the cage within her reach.

The biggest you seem to be able to get is 12" in both Silent spinners or Wodent Wheels. You can get bigger ones made by john hopewell though which I would probably do if I had boys (breeder boys) as they are significantly longer than girls so I have found out this week whilst doing a bit of rat sitting.

I have an 11" savic wheel and i think they aren't too small for girls. a good bit too small for boys though.
