They are about as common/uncommon as the type for the large frame, but are much less costly, usually under a hundred bucks. The small frames in general demand much lower prices, as do their attachments and accessories. That's part of the reason I have found them fun to collect (and they take up less room!).
The greatest downfall to the hilo on a small frame tractor, is that while their biggest benefit on a large frame is for tilling, on a small frame the hilo not only reduces ground speed, it reduced rear PTO output speed (it slows down your tiller or revitalizer). They were advertised for use when snowblowing, but in my experience, those little single stage blowers need to be fed a lot to work well, and so driving slow kinda restricts their ability.
