Do the plastic tensioner pulleys with the ball bearing centers hold up very well?

Thanks,
Dan

The idler pulleys?

Yes. They are just about the only option as well. I believe they are pre-lubricated but it doesnt hurt to put some oil/ WD40 on them every once in a while.

My mower has the plastic ilder pullys and i never had a issue with them.
I do lubricate them every now and then.

I have had one freeze up on me before on the Ariens deck, but that was because of poor lubrication.
