I have pushed 8" before. That got a little tricky at the end where it had been piled by the state snow plows. But the tractor does great. I dont think I would try it with turf tires and no chains though.
here's a few shots

I've always found it to be easier to plow 10" of snow, 5" at a time.
Yup, this is the key, you need to plow with the storm and not wait until it's all over with. I had a plow on my Cub Cadet for a while when we lived at our old house...traction for me anyway, was not a really big problem but one of my problems was that the front was so light (8hp) that when the plow was angled, after it started to get heavy it would shove the front end over to the side.

I have tested mine out in 18" plus without even getting wheel slip. Last year, I was at maybe 350lbs at the rear, but a good 150 of that was right on top of the axle. This year it will be on the back of the axle, but pretty close. If I have enough left over, I hope to add about 50 to 75 lbs to the front end this year as well. My rear tires are loaded and chained turf's with wheel weights. The rest is in that weight box I made for the rear. In the front, I have the tri-ribs to help dig in so I am thinking that the extra weight up front will really help out in heavy wet snow.
