I am a senior citizen, female with various health issues and can not shovel the snow. My son bought me the EGO Blower for Christmas to keep my ramp cleaned off.. Love how it functions. There is one problem my hand is larger then the switch under handle and there is a metal strip that protrudes from the handle in back of the switch. I get a trickle of juice from the strip every time I use it. I will try and find something to insulate between my hand and the metal strip but wanted to alert you of this issue. I do not know if there is a grounding issue or what.
