new aerator-turfco, ryan, lawn solutions??

ok im sure its been done before but here goes:
i am in the market for a new or used aerator
i do not want one that will kill the operator IE-bluebird, husqvarna, ect.
i of course don't want to kill the bank either.
i cannot spend 8000 on a ride on. and need to fit through a 36" gate.
i am thinking : Ryan V, Lawn solutions walk behind, turfco aerator 20, tufco aerator pro-26 , turfAer 4
i would like to keep the price down so i would like used if possible but if i have to buy new so be it.
please help with choice and give me prices. Long Island NY
oh and just to make it even more difficult i need to make this happen within the next 4 weeks.

Lawn Solutions were great to deal with... purchased directly from them.

I purchased the (slit seeder) Turf Revitalizer 9hp, not the aerator and I received it about 7-8 days after ordering it from them (late Feb 2010).... FedEx Freight was also great. I used it on Sunday to test dethatching my lawn and the results were great! I will be seeding once it starts to warm up.

The new hydro walk-behind turf aerifier cost $3,500 + $125 shipping.

Again great to deal with them.... highly recommeded.

Speak to Josh or David the owner... David is always on the forum.

One problem I have with ordering anything heavy like that freight is you need a hilo or something to lift it off the freight truck with. Eliminates a lot of small business owners from considering the purchase.

Companies like Lawn Solutions, Turfo et all need a dealer network where people can pick up their machines without those concerns.

Sales would increase tremendously I would imagine.

LT Rich is getting a local dealer network in place and other manufacturers need to as well.

I don't know what options are available to people without lifting equipment. Ship it somewhere where they have a Hi Lo? Pick it up at the freight terminal?
