Have mercy!! Deck Rollers

I need to redo my tired/missing rollers on my 60 inch Sunstar deck. 25$ a piece x 9 is a tough pill to swallow for rollers ( 1678043SM). Amazon,eBay, Jack's, partstree are all about the same. Any suggestions? Suck it up? Thanks

Re: Have mercy!! Deck Rollers

I bought a long section of Delrin and drilled the center on my metal lathe and made my own.

Re: Have mercy!! Deck Rollers

I have replaced mine with Boat ramp rollers that are far cheaper, and just as good. A band saw can be used to cut to size. Quick search came up with $11.86 here.

Re: Have mercy!! Deck Rollers

Its a small price to pay for killer stripes. Even $12K commercial machines cannot compete with a good Simplicity 60"

Re: Have mercy!! Deck Rollers

I was replacing at least one plastic roller every year if not two. I had my neighbor turn some rollers out of Dogwood that I soaked in burnt engine oil and add oilite bushings. That was over 15 years. The only one I have had to replace was one that came lose and I backed over it with the deck. Give it a try I think you will be supprized how long they last.
