Just ran the snow blower for 30 minutes with both 5.0 batteries - died after 30 minutes, normal? heavy snow if that matters...

wondering if this is normal. both batteries were recently charged, maybe they sat for a week off the charger - 30 minutes total run time and both batteries were dead.  Using with the snow blower and it was on constantly - I did use the LED lights for about 10 minutes or so with it.

Pushing that snowblower through a 2 foot deep snowfall will surely drain the batteries quickly! Under lighter snow conditions I would expect it to last longer.
