Bear in mind that all of my experience with 3-pt equipment is with a JD 750 that did not have "float" on it,
I used a finish mower, landscape rake, and rear blade on it.
I though that having float with the finish mower would have been helpful, but that with the rake and blade, just keeping and eye on the implement, and raising/lowering it as required was all I really needed to do.
I just bought an 18010 3-pt for my 1886, and the lift arms are fixed. However the 1886 does have a float position on the lift lever.
You could modify your lift arm to something similar to the tube frame lift arms for the snowblower and front blade to give you a "mechanical" float as opposed to a 'hydraulic float'.
