Why do you recommend a 4.0AH battery for one of the batteries in the snow blower? AH means length of run time. Not power output. I have two 2.5AH batteries and not a big area to snowblow. Wouldn't that be fine? The output power should be the same with a 2.0AH battery vs a 7.5AH battery. The blower just shouldn't run as long. Right?

Any size battery will work in any tool. The primary difference with battery size is run time.

Larger batteries can supply more power than smaller ones. For the snowblower to operate at maximum power it requires two batteries of a minimum 4Ah. Smaller batteries will definitely work, but the snowblower will not offer as much peak power output and will have shorter run times.
