Bought an EGO 56v leaf blower about two years ago...been getting mild shocks that have nothing to do with the snow or moisture...this isn't right and I don't think its so uncommon. Gloves or no gloves...WTF.
Paul, which blower do you have? The 530, 575, 580 and Backpack blowers all have grounding straps designed to eliminate static potential between the user and the tool. If you have one of these models the strap may not be working as intended if you are getting shocked without gloves on.
