generac gen questions

I have two 30 amp line breakers on the gen panel near the start/stop switch. They almost look like light switch in the house. One of them if I move it back and forth is easy to move and it clicks a bit into the on or off position, the other one is extremely easy to move and if it is on the on position it takes a slight touich to make it pop off.
Seems to me there should be more effort required to move these. DO these switchs deteriorate and just go bad over the years?

yes breakers go bad over the years and should be easy to replace

you are right they should have about the same resistance and it should take a little effort they get weaker every time that they are overloaded.
and you can definitely replace them your self just take your time and if need be take pictures for reference
