Nothing wrong with a Leinbach plow for $150.

However, I doubt it will fit your GC1705, which I suspect has only 9" ground clearance.

A 12" plow will turn earth satisfactorily only from 5" to 7" deep. You may be able to mount the Leinbach on your Three Point Hitch but your 9" ground clearance, rather than 12" ground clearance, will throw the plow geometry way off.

Both everytfhingattachments.com and King Kutter make plows designed specifically for subcompact tractors @ $750.

The dirt contact part of the plows for subcompact tractors are the same. The plow masts, which attach to the tractor's Three Point Hitch, have reduced dimensions.

Kubota 'B' series has 12" to 14" ground clearance.

I believe your subcompact GC1705 has 9" ground clearance.

Consider a Middlebuster for a small garden. King Kutter makes Middlebusters for subcompacts, maybe others. Not for really tough soil.
