    I don't think you'll have enough traction to plow with even with chains and tire weights.
    try plowsite they should be able to give you a better idea.

    Ok i see now, my advice would be to buy the snow plow and weld metal plates to the edges of the blade to make your pusher.

    There definitely would be an issue with plow on 2WD. We've got a blower on a F725 and some mornings its a major fuss to go up an incline and not lose traction

    I had a dozer/snow blade on both a Grasshopper 700 series and a Woods F series. Both did quite well with snow up to about 7 inches. Neither machine had chains. There is more traction than you think with just the tractor unit. With chains I could have done slightly deeper snow. The PTO is nice if you want to hook up the other equipment like the snow blower or broom.
