You have one super tractor Coop! Power is great & uses are endless. Rear blade is no problem for it. Fluid fill the rear tires & add some cast iron wheel weights and the beast will do most anything within reason. The 2 speed differential is great too. Put it in low for heavy work, high for mowing/hauling. Some cat-1 items can be used, but would require weighting the tractor up front to keep from popping wheelies, and require adapting the implement to cat-0 pins. I have a modified 1650, and a 1655. The 1655 is now an 1855 after installing an 18hp Onan, and it is a dedicated front end loader tractor. With loader & all the weights, it scales around 1700+ pounds & can dig & push dirt like mad. They can pull a 12" garden plow easily too, and when soil is right, I pull twin 10" plows with my "2055"...(modified 1650). Not much they can't do as a matter of fact.
Oops...forgot to say....Welcome to GTT!

Welcome aboard.
Made a blade for mine years ago. Great tool were the big stuff can not go. My 1855 handle it very well.
Could pull a 10 inch Plow up here in the red clay. Lots and lots of weight. Top wheel dual ag thread and 250 lbs plus 60 lbs son when he wanted to ride. Farrow wheel ag tread 100 lbs.
