Hi everyone, while you can use the blower for snow, we don't really recommend it at this point. The handle in the 530CFM blower does have a ground in it but could be circumvented by wearing gloves. The highest risk of shock can occur when using the blower if it's actively snowing as the small particles flying around can be sucked into the intake and cause shocks or additional damage.
