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.

Another question to ask: Can you mow your entire yard with the 7.5 AH battery, or could you use a few more batteries to augment your existing 7.5? If you are going to buy a snowblower, getting the kit with batteries included is the cheapest way to buy extra batteries and chargers.

Yes two 5.0 batteries for $200 is a heck of a deal !

The two 5ah batteries gives you more torque and better power distribution.  Snow removal is generally harder than grass removal.  You can even have more torque by using a 5ah battery with a 7.5 ah battery.  To answer your question, probably 15 minutes longer  The batteries and charger are a lot cheaper when you buy the kit.
