Used to use a 9030 bidi for swathing with a similar setup. Made a hitch for the roller by putting a pipe through the hole in the frame where the engine end 3pt hitch would mount. Made it long enough so that the rolled would track in the center of the swath. Not sure if the tv has the same kind of setup....

There is a roller that is designed to fit in the opening right on the header. Should work really well in this application. Forget the name of the manufacturer off the top of my head.

My neighbour runs this set-up. They use a welded together frame that mounts on the engine end 3-point hitch and extends out; it doesn't really whip at the corners and it follows the swath nicely around the corners because of the tractor articulating and it pivoting at the hitch. It was an afternoon project that they threw together quickly and it works very nicely.
