Look around page 46 of the pdf file. It shows 195 kg in one of the pictures you linked to and goes to either side. I guess if you have the money/income to pay for it. What does something like that cost? 10 to 12 thousand dollars?

Probably would need seperate hydraulic pto pump and tank, I kind of doubt that tractor has the 3.8 to 5.6 gallon per minute but you probably have the specs studied by now. Probably would want some sort of counter balance and only use on side opposite of that. It does seem contradicting itself specifying pto and using tractor open center hydraulic system. From the picture I can see the sickle is hydraulic.

OPERATION
3.6 Hydraulics
The PT5 uses the tractor’s open cent
er hydraulics remote outlets; opti
mum mower performance will require 3.8
to 5.6 gallons per minute. Adjust trac
tor RPM to achieve this hydraulic flow
rate (Higher flow rates may cause
damage to the cutter’s drive mechanism).
Hydraulic controls shall be provided for boom lift, dipper, and sickle bar tilt for full operator control. The
mower’s hydraulic system shall be protected
from overload by an automatic relief valve.
3.7 Front End Weight
A minimum of 20% total tractor weight must be maintained on the tractor front end at all times. Front end
weight is critical to maintain steering control and to prevent the tractor from rearing up while driving. If the
front end is too light, add weight unt
il a minimum of 20% total weight is
reached on the front tires. Front
weights and weight carriers can be purchased through an authorized tractor dealership.
