I think you'll be OK. My only concern is the weight up front taking traction away from the rear wheels. A set of wheel weights or loaded tires would help. Chains are a must.
I have a Sauder power angle plow on my 660 with pie weights and chains. I works fine, but traction is marginal, I could use more weight out back. I was going to use my Woods 3 pt. mower this winter, but I found a Smyth snow thrower for a reasonable price. I'll give that a try. I'll bet reverse is too fast.

I use a 6.5 foot wide snowblower behind my 860, and yes, reverse is too fast. I found that I could deal with the speed issue easily though by taking passes narrower than the full blower width if need be in deeper snow. Still had to stop moving to let the blower clean out on the first pass with full width in deeper snow. I like blowing snow better than plowing snow, its nice not having snowbanks.

I like your bar tires on the front. I'm guessing most people who just glance at your tractor probably think it's 4 wheel drive. Great conversation piece.
