Default Best LARGE plastic hamster cages?

Hi all, im in search of a suitable large hamster cage for Syrian that doesn't need meshing

Are there any others apart from Zoozone2 and Duna Multy?

Where are you located?

If you’re looking for tank style cages then the Duna Multy Maxi is the largest at 100x50cm but the height isnt ideal at only 36cm and for the cost you could build a larger diy cage or buy a cheaper barred cage of the same size

we dont have many large boxes in the uk, just the RUB 145L (80x50cm), RUB 160L (100x45cm), and the Wham Crystal 133L (95x35cm). The 160L is good for Syrians but it does have large raised areas in the corners for the wheels which isnt ideal, the plastic is also very thick and difficult to cut. The other two are much more suited to dwarf species.

Have you looked into the ikea linnmon hack? Its pretty affordable and more spacious than any of the other options mentioned

If you google “Really useful boxes” go to their website link - under all storage boxes and right near the bottom of the page is their 145 litre one. It’s good for a bin cage - about 80cm by 60cm.

Personally I would go with the maxi duna multy.

With the maxi though, you cant fit a normal 12" wheel can you? my hamster doesnt like the flying saucers.

Im trying to get her a cage without bars as shes chewing, she has chews etc in her cage too. It's not helping her skin issues

Someone had a hamster who was an incessant bar biter so they put a grass hammock against the bars (2nd review down);

Hopefully that might be a good distraction, and tied flat against the bars it hopefully won't scratch or itch her skin.
