I'm not familiar with those two specifically, but assuming that it's a 20+HP tractor that uses its drivetrain as a frame, concerns are the frame (and the hitch) not being up to the forces of a hoe, and the pump not being up to its hydraulic demands. By the time you install a subframe and auxiliary pump, you might have been better off renting a hoe. ....

Your tractor's bigger than I assumed, and sounds compatable. For what it's worth, the Wallenstein company is near me, has been there for ages, and are solid people with a quality product line.

What I said about the hitch and frame is still there, so try to operate on the gentle side. I'm sure you know that with a hoe attached, a tractor becomes clumsy for doing other things; it may be worthwhile to build a holding stand to make on/off easier. A front loader gives balance when transporting and stability when lowered for hoeing.

Sorry -- they're not mine. Several firms offer holding stands for 3-pt augers, and I've heard that one of them has a generic series for hoes, but that's all I know.

Most every hoe and attachment is somewhat individual, so I'd make my own, a stand to hold it in position so you just undo the hitch and lines, drive forward to leave it, and reverse to re-install. ....

Thanks Auerbach, you have been very helpful.
I'm sure I can build a suitable holding stand
for the hoe. An excellent idea. I'll try not
to bother you again.
Many thanks,
Willtell ....
