Do you all think that a mf10 will pull a grader ok or do I need to look into another option. Need to spread some gravel and it would beat a shovel.

I assume you mean a Brinly style rear blade? If so, yes. You'll need weights and chains.
They had dozen blades available and both box and grader blades for behind The 10

The secret will be that it will require you doing little bites and it will take longer than a big tractor.

  I own a machine that appears to be a MF / Simpliity. Tags are missing. Came to me with a front blade and center mount grader blade. I had to fabricate missing linkage parts so it is not original configuration. The grader blade works fine in lose stuff but fails in hard packed ground. In my configuration it has down pressure. Unfortunately down pressure on the blade means less pressure on the drive wheels/No traction. Can be a balancing act but I enjoy using it a lot more than a shovel and steel rake. Don

It has 25 lb weights in each wheel but you still recommend chains?

Yes, assuming you have turf tires now, they make a huge difference.
Most guys find an old set at a flea market and cut them. They are still available new, too.
