I was wondering how many of you guys have ever had a blower eat your T-Shirt half off your back. First time it hapened to me it scared the crap out of me.<p>----------<br>Bobby <br>Ft Lauderdale

My stihl BR400 claims about three new employees shirts every year. One time we had a guy who used to carry a bandanna in his back pocket. After about 2hrs I finnaly got it off the impeller.<p>Ssouth keep your shirt tucked in<br>

If your shirt is real loose fitting, on some blowers, it can get sucked into the intake right behind your back pad. I don't think it could hurt you, but it could damage your impeller.<p>----------<br>Bobby <br>Ft Lauderdale

I sucked a pair of panty hose right off a clothes line one time. The customer was an elderly woman and she thought it was the funniest thing she had seen in years.
