Now the real important question. Is that an MGB in the background, sixmilelen?

That's quite a load up front to push, whether skidding on the snow or raised. You need more weight, as that is a light tractor. Fill the tires with WWF, and weights in the rims....maybe more on the rear too.
As Daniel said weight in the back will make all the difference. Check your owners manual and see if it tells you how much weight you can add to the rear of your tractor. Fluid in the rear tires and weights mounted to them don't add weight to the frame or tranny. If your manual states a weight limit to add to the rear of the tractor you should be able to add that even with the rear tires loaded and weighted down. I had an 11 horse tractor much like yours years ago with a snow blower on it. It needed a lot of weight on the back to be able to use it. The front mounted blower takes a lot of weight off of the rear of the tractor and then you loose traction.
