Question for those with BR 600's

I've been doing my cleanups and have noticed something that really irks me. I wanted to see if the same thing happened to others that own this blower or not. The blower starts to fade in and out like it's running out of gas when it has a 1/4 tank of gas. It happens more frequently as you keep running it and will eventually shut off once the gas tank is pretty much empty. I know I could just fill it up 25% more often than what I should, but I wanted to see if this was something all of you experienced. It justs gets on my nerves to fill it up when it doesn't really need it.

Yeah, mine does the exact same thing. Since it only does it after you run the blower for a very long time and it doesn't do it every time I figured it would be about impossible to get it to do it for the dealer (warranty).

Not at all. I will check today about what yours is doing- but i have had my 600 go to empty with no problems.

The two I have also do it , and as stated its when they are almost empty. I guess if your moving or leaning the gas flows away from the tube and slows it down but once you square up again it runs fine until empty. I look at it this way, once you hear that thing slow down you know its almost time to refuel!!
