I have a set of sears tractor attachements. I have a 3 point hitch, a plow, disc, cultivator, back blade and a push blade.

I have an oppotunity to buy a sears custom 6 tractor. i know the hitch will fit it but will the little bugger pull the plow, disc and cultivator through the dirt.

I am going to buy the tractor but wont be able to set it up and try it til spring. The tractor is in great condition and runs like a champ. all the gears work well mower deck works well. $250

I do not have pics of any of this but maybe in the spring.

The common plow size for the Custom was the 8" (they did have a 6" too)
Even tho I've found zero reference to a 7", I own one.
The std size for the Suburbans is a 10". The general rule of thumb is 1" per hp. However, My experience is that you can plow with less than that, just not as fast. The Custom tractors are tougher than people think, give it a try and I think you'll be surprised.

One word of caution on the 6 hp engine. It's not steel sleeved so oil changes are hyper critical. Also, if you're going to work it, you may want to go synthetic.

I think it will do fine. I had a Custom 7 that did not blink at pushing snow or breaking up my packed driveway. My 7hp engine didn't always run as smooth as I wanted yet it had plenty of power, even at only mid-throttle so we're talking about using much less than the rated hp.
