/ 8' pull-type disk behind L5460, possible? #1

I'm in the market for a disc harrow. My land is flat and soil is easily worked up, sandy so to say. Tractor has r-4's loaded so tractor weight is right around 5500lbs plus loader. Looking to work up approx 5-10 acres per year, starting with 5 acres virgin ground this spring. I had my heart set on an 8' pull-type, 22" pans x 24 pans coming in right about 2000lbs. 8' seems to be the narrowest tractor pull-type disc without going to a utv type which wouldn't make any sense. For those that have some experience with an L6060 or L5460 do you think this is feasible? or just too big? Do I need to start looking at HD 3pt discs and most likely add weight to get decent depth? Purchased an L5460 hydro with a multitude of tasked to be done so I realize this is not a farming tractor but this is the only task on my long list where a bigger geared tractor obviously would've worked better. I'm not interested in purchasing any older discs as time for accessing and rebuilding is not something I have time for now. I also have a 6' tiller but cringe at moving at a snails pace. I know multiple passes will have to be done with a disc too. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!!!!! Just hoping to have all my ducks in a row by the time spring rolls around so I need to shop soon.
