Just wondering how much time a single 7.5 battery would power a snowblower. I bought a 7.5ah lawn mower kit today and plan on getting the snowblower. Home Depot sells a snowblower kit with dual 5.0ah or battery less.

I'm curious if I can just save some money and use my lawn mower 7.5 for the winter.

Pretty standard 3 car driveway with sidewalk.

A single 7.5 should last about 75% as long (7.5 vs 10 Ah) under light loads. Under heavy loads I would expect the two 5Ah batteries to do even better while having greater power output.

If you have any other Ego batteries you can mix and match; a 2.5 and a 7.5, or a 5 and 7.5 etc. But, as Ego says, to get the absolute best power output from the machine both batteries should be 4Ah or larger.
