LB4800 - Was using it to blow some light snow last week and it cut off after a minute and wont operate now. Battery was fully charged according to the charger. It has never missed a beat prior to this. Any ideas?

Yes...you sucked snow in through the air intake and you may have shorted something out...:(

I hate the youtube videos showing people blowing snow with their LEAF blowers...:(

One thing that you might try is place your blower near a heat source in a low humidity environment and hopefully it might completely dry out and work again...BUT...I'd call CS to get in the queue, in case that does not work

Bill, as Paul said, you may have shorted something out inside the blower if snow got into the intake while you were using it.  Give Ego Customer Service a call and see what they recommend.
