The interaction of friction surfaces for pairs of the type “undercuff neck–cuff edge” in the design of closed, radial, ball, single-row bearings with built-in contact seals, used as support for the belt-driven rollers on John Deere 864 balers, is described. On the basis of conducted research, it is established that the cause of destruction of the investigated bearings seals is a significant increase in temperature in the contact zone due to the appearance of contact stresses induced by the misalignment of bearing outer and inner rings. The kinetics of wear in a friction pair of the type “undercuff neck–cuff edge” was investigated. The dependence of the friction torque versus the temperature in the contact seal is presented. The physical model of wear in a friction pair of the type “undercuff neck–cuff edge” is described. The effect of the gap size on the lubricant leakage from the bearing cavity is investigated.
