I use this machine on a daily basis and think it is great. However, have a problem with the bladders; they come apart every 12 months or so.

Two questions: 1. Does anyone else have a problem with this? 2. Is there a trick to installing the replacement bladder?

Grizzly says this is not a common problem. It seems like dry rot? First a small split, then it goes quickly from one end to the other.

They also cannot give me any advice on how to install the new bladder. It’s just like putting a tire on a rim, but is very easy to damage the bladder in the process.

Anyone has any ideas?
