With the top covers removed and the engine off set the mill to go forward down the track. Put a metal bar on the middle of the bearing. You can put your ear up to the bar and hear the bad bearing. It will growl and make noise. The one I lose the most is the single one on top near the front of the mill. My wifes stethoscope works good but I can only use it when she is not home.
Usually you can feel the roughness in the bearings. A quick check is remove the Power feed belt and push the saw head and listen for the bearing. Also check the bearings in the Power feed shaft and the idler for the power feed chain. Hope this helps!Marty

Just kinda want to get a feel as to when I may need to change the bearings on my mill. I have 1157 hours on my mill!thanks
but it seemed like it was only binding when it was passing over the axle area Jim Rogers
Binding at the axles can come from not having enough pressure on the front or rear out rigger when milling.
