Sealed bearings on deck spindles

yes the grease fittings are mostly just for decoration, some spindles makers dont even bother putting them on it any more

if you want to look at it close you can pry off and pop out the plastic seal to expose the bearings so the grease fitting can lube them but to be honest its easier to just replace the $4 sealed bearings every 4-5 years

You can only learn if you ask the question, so there are no dumb questions.
