In the snowblower, can both batteries be used simultaneously or do the two slots simply give you longer running time? I was wondering if pulling from both batteries simultaneously (instead of consecutively) would give it more blowing power.

I see from another post that they are supposed to draw simultaneously. The batteries are identical 7.5 amps.

Scott, yes both batteries are being drained simultaneously. Having two batteries to draw power from allows the snowblower to both operate at higher power as well as more time.

It will run on one battery but with less power and shorter run time.
