I would think the 18 was too big to rake hay with, but that's just me. I've seen others do it with bigger yet just because that's what they have. I rake with either our 1600 or Massey 285.
Anyway.... I'd think the 2255 would be much better on the tillage aspect. Don't know for haying. I pull our 14' hydraswing haybine with either our Massey 285 (roughly 80 HP) or our 1855 (dynoed at 105) and while the 285 works harder, it works quite well. I've pulled a 5 shank subsoiler with our 1855 in the past, ansd we've pulled 7 shank disc chisels as well. It's a load and 5 would be better, but it's what we could find to rent. A 2255 would probably pull a 9 shank chisel.
