If your talking digging depth a 7 ft. hoe sounds big for a garden tractor.

Sounds like a little to much for a HT20.

KwikWay makes a nice SGT/SCUT sized BH.  I've seen variations of it on many different brand machines.  It has a 6.5' digging depth.  Unit weighs around 700lbs, however it is NOT a 3pt style.  It utilizes a full length subframe and pins to the tractor frame or 3pt carriage.

I have a hoe about that size (6.5' digging depth) on a JD 2320 CUT.  In my opinion, a hoe that size on anything smaller would be useless, at least in the ground conditions around here.  Maybe work OK in sand.

A Johnson Model 14, which is intended for GT's like the Bolens Large Frames, has a digging depth of 6'. Not sure an additional 6" of digging depth makes that much of a difference in whether it will work or not on a Large Frame. And not that one of the pics above shows the BH on the back of a 400 series JD, a GT comparable in size and power to a Large Frame.

Looks nice !  Will you make it a permanent or some way to get it off form time to time . Looks like most GT's 3 point wouldn't even be able to  lift it  .
