Very pleased with the performance with the 5 amp batteries.  I just lost my virginity with the snow blower and very pleased.  Spent about 40 minutes with 3-5 inches of wet snow.  Still had juice left after I was done.

Snow melted a bit this morning so justice isn't quite served with the pictures.  Early this morning I did the driveway where the snow plow threw the snow higher than the snow thrower and still had no problem.  One thing that I think some people may be having some difficulty is the angle of the chute.  One does need to adjust it so the snow throws well and I'm guessing the battery will last longer due to less strain as the snow is being evacuated at a higher rate.

Very true! The chute angle has a HUGE impact on throwing distance, and on single speed blowers is the only way to control distance. Your comment is likely right on the money; adjust the chute for max distance and throttle the auger speed to control distance for maximum battery life. This may not work if you're throwing powdery snow into the wind, but otherwise should.
