Lots of folks here use a rear blade. It does work, but you'll also have a sore neck/back by the time you're done if your driveway is large.

Any good solid blade will work. As for width, make sure that even when it's angled, it still sticks beyond both of your rear tires. I've got an 8 ft with offset capability on my TO-35 and it works great. It's also seriously heavy, so it holds itself down quite nicely. Really should build a set of shoes for it though, as I can quickly go from plowing snow to plowing driveway if I don't keep an eye on it.

I don't have chains, but I do have loaded rears and rear wheel weights. At times chains might be handy. But not having them does encourage me to think about what I'm doing to make sure I don't get stuck.

I have a TO30 and I do snow removal with a 6 foot blade on the rear. I also turn mine around backwards, but for a different reason: my driveway is all gravel and if I have it the normal way, it removes way too much gravel. That makes for quite the clean up come spring. It's a pretty big driveway and is on a slope which complicates things.

Don't have chains, but think they are in my future. I can remove 6 inches easily, but someday I'll need those chains.
