I have my 5020H.  Just picked up a 3pt for it this summer.

 

Does anyone around here plow their garden with one of these?  I'm looking to get a rototiller, but I'd kinda like to be able to plow first.

 

Any help or pictures of your hook up would be appreciated!

Well, if you're not going to use it, send the 3 pt to me. :)

or just post some pics of the 3pt, I hope to have one on my GTX20 one day.

HAHA.... Yeah. I think not.  I'd been looking for one for about 7 years ;)   I have a pair of arms that bolt to the frame fabbed up if that gets you any closer :D

My brother has a tiller for his GTX20. I'm not sure if he has any pictures of it or not.

That I believe is the narrower tiller than the others I've seen. Also, the arms that mount the tiller are different than the arms that mount the 3-pt.  But I have always wondered if you can use those 3-pt arms for the tiller.

Back to your original question.

 

I don't see any reason that you couldn't plow with your tractor.

 

You have enough weight, HP and an Eaton 11 hydro with a 2-spd rear end.

 

Put a Brinly plow on it and It should do a great job.

I've been keeping my eyes out for a Brinly plow locally and curious if it would be worth picking up.  I have a Simplicity 2110 that I am getting a 36" tiller setup on right now and David Bradley Tractors with plows.  I just want all of the toys to do all the jobs that I want them to do.  Eventually (someday) I'll get an HT-20 or 23 with a front end loader too!

tiller arms are a lot different from 3 point  the tiller can have extensions i think its the standard 33 inch at present
