Ceramic Bearings

As some of you know I added dolly wheels to the front of my Yamaha snowblower.





Best idea I ever had, it works great, way better than skids, these actually save the skids from wearing down and stops the bottom of the auger from wearing flat. But there's always a drawback, these wheels end up in the EOD soaked with road slush a lot. I tried packing them with grease but to no avail, after a couple of winters these are rusted solid. Not that the 608 -2RS are expensive, I can get them for 25₵ a piece and there not that hard to change but if I could get better I would. Trying to achieve perfection here. lol

So I ordered these ceramic 608 -2RS double sealed @ $3Cdn a piece. They won't rust but will they take the punishment and the weight. Any of you have experience with these type of bearings?

Those bearings should be able to handle the weight, which is not much.
Eventually you will wear out the "Tire" part of them, but no big deal, they aren't expensive, so you just replace the wheel when its worn.

Already received my ceramic bearings from China!

They weigh a bit less than a normal bearing...




Now I have a spare set ready to go when the present ones rust out.




Or maybe I should put these on right away to test them and report back in a couple of years or sooner if they fail.

How about putting on one of each for a direct comparison over time?
