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

    Echo PB400 is a hungry one. Haven't had a problem with the BR400. Quite unnerving the first time.

    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!
