I agree with BA, you don't want the extra weight of the larger batteries. They are fine for short use, but that defeats the only purpose of using a larger battery, unless that is all you have and are considering purchasing a bare tool. In that case I would say that the hedge trimmer is fine to handle with a larger battery for a few minutes, but your arms and core will wear out a lot faster with all the reaching.
