  1. Learned from experience it is not recommended to apply grease on the roller wheels because grease is very sticky and it attracts sands and muds with it and feel the gap of the wheels that will make it worst.

    Better to use left over or use lubricant of car engine oil and the WD-40 bolt looser.
