I looked around and couldn't find an exact answer...

I have these two products and batteries:
  • LB5300 Cordless Blower which has a 56v 2.5 Ah battery 
  • LM2002 Lawn Mower which has a 56v 5.0 Ah battery
Can I use those 2 different batteries in the SNT2100 Snow Blower so I don't have to buy any more batteries?

The connections are the same size but the 5.0 Ah battery is slightly thicker than the 2.5 Ah battery. The blower material says the "2.5 Ah battery is compatible with all EGO POWER+ products" but I wanted to check before trying it out? Are there any issues with this combo?

5Ah and 2.5Ah batteries will power the snowblower just fine, but as szwoopp indicated, you may not get the full power output for heavy/deep snow. The 4Ah batteries have the same power output as the 5Ah batteries, and Ego recommends two 4Ah minimum for best power.

The snowblower will run on a single 2.5Ah battery if you want, but it’s performance and run time will be pretty disappointing. ;-)

Home Depot is now selling reconditioned 2 x 5Ah snowblower kits for $420, only $20 more than the new bare tool. Only a one year warranty on all components, though:
