Was it a Shidaiwa? We have a Shin that gets hungry too, but the Red Max hasn't eaten a shirt yet.

While using a handheld blower, my son had walked up to me. I then noticed that his head was against the intake side of the blower. His draw string from his jacket hood had gotten sucked in! He wasn't hurt.

using a backpack blower (in my case the BP-400) you need to tuck in your shirt tail. or you wont have a shirt tail!

So far my BR400 has eaten numerous shirt tails, rags in my
back pocket, a helpers handkerchief, a decorative flag
hanging off of a customer's porch! WOW what an appetite!

Good Luck!
