I know a guy that has had a 7' Fisher on a MF 135 for quite a lot of years. It works fine. He has always carried a blower on the back for the deep drifts and extra weight tho...
In your situation I'd probably prefer to have a plow on the 2940... likely a 8.5 or 9' model. Again, with a blower if possible. The Ford would also work fine with a 7' plow.

 Re: Putting a snow plow on the front of a tractor in reply to RodInNS, 10-09-2013 06:37:07  
On my MF35 chains are a must. If no chains, especially after the base starts freezing, it gets hung up real easy if the front end drops over a incline and it doesn't take much of an incline. Put chains on and it will really go places and push a lot of snow. 4WD would be nice in that regard. Another thing I notice on the MF35 is when backing up with a bit of throttle applied, it doesn't take much for the front end to swing around sideways. Probably due to the extra weight on the front end and no traction on the front wheels.
All of that being said, I am very happy with my plow and 35 combination. Before this we had this same plow with a different framework of course on the Farmall 504. It would push like crazy, but the reverse was very slow, it didn't really work out as well as the 35.
My plow is a very old Western plow with manual angle, made around early 70s or so. Hydraulic angling would be nice.
