I already own the BA2800 battery for my lawn mower and am considering purchasing a Power Head system.  I note the Power Head system is typically grouped with a different battery and want to be sure the BA2800 battery is ok with the Power Head system.  Thanks

EGO batteries are cross functional with all EGO tools, so YES, you can use it with the Power Head system.  However, it might be a little heavy so a shoulder strap would be a good idea to use with.  You can buy the strap from Home Depot (see link below).

The strap is a good idea even with the 5.0 Ah battery. And if you're an Amazon Prime member, or just an Amazon shopper in general, you can also buy the battery there: https://www.amazon.com/EGO-Power-AP1500-Lithium-Ion-Brushless/dp/B01HPMQEXM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&q...

Eleanor, the BA2800 is the same battery that ships with the Power Head system kits. It will work just fine.

As mentioned, all Ego tools work with all Ego batteries, the one catch being that the more powerful tools will perform slightly better with the larger batteries as they can supply more power to the tool under load. The BA2800 is supplied with the Power Head system for this reason: it's a VERY powerful tool! :-)
