how would a brinly rear blade work for plowing snow?

I'm wondering, since, my dad and grandpa used a massey ferguson 135 and a rear blade (turned around, drove backwards) to plow snow for years.

I think the same idea but using my Moto Mower 6020 would work...

Should be ok for light snow. Have to look over your shoulder the whole time tho.

Ok. It's only a temporary measure, until I get one of 2 massey ferguson 12s running, then it gets snow duty

I am kicking around the idea of mounting a snow blower on the back of mine. For those oddball areas that are hard to plow.

I like the thrower on the back of my mf 12. Fun to use, and gets the job done.

I prefer to have the attachments out front for moving show.  To hard to turn and look all the time in winter dress.  Especially when all the joints are stiff to start with.

I also have three garden tractors with blowers and a thrower on the front. So I only use the rear mount when I feel like it. It would be hard on the back using it for hours.

Light stuff, ok. To hard or sudden jars will be hard on it
The hitch was made for pulling more than pushing

I have about 1/8 mile of loose gravel driveway.. I haven't tried it yet, but I plan on using my Craftsman 42" blower out in front, raised up about 3/4 inch or so, and my Brinly blade angled in the back to catch the last bit that's left over.
