Reverse gear is kinda fast for a snowblower, and I think it would be a pain to back up & pull forward a lot with a live PTO.
When backing up you might be able to lock up one brake and make the other tire spin to control your ground speed in deep snow.
I think you could make the best of it, but it's not an ideal tractor for a snowblower.

I forgot to mention that I have a Hupp transmission. I have used it before and if I remember correctly it got stuck once in that low speed range and took some finagaling to get it out and I have not tried it since.
I am using a rear grader blade which works well but I tend to run out of space to put the snow

The Hupp in low range would also slow down your PTO so that wouldn't work to well with a blower. I use a 72" blower on an MF50 and wouldn't want to be without the low range reverse and two stage clutch. A TO35 would work the same as an MF50 as long as it had the two-stage clutch. I also have a TO20 and TO30 and their reverse speed would be to high most of the time for snow blowing with the engine at PTO speed. I recently bought a MH50 with an MF65 rear end and that combo goes REALLY slow which I think would work even better for busting through big compacted road plow snow piles.
