Aerating 6 acres

Never tackled anything like this. I can rent a tractor, easily enough. But, I'm wondering if there's a tool that my 400CC ATV could pull that would pull cores well enough? I have no idea. IF there's a pull-behind that can be pulled with my ATV, I'd go ahead and purchase it (2X/yr. for a few years, I'll recoup costs fairly quickly, I hope).

Thanks for your help.

If you weight it enough it will work, as long as the ATV has enough power to pull it.

That's what I'm asking.

Which unit (if weighted enough)? I've given you my machine's CC's.

I used a pull behind on a 350 Big Bear 4x4 and done a 4 acre lawn
My pull behind bought at a farm store think its 50'' pulls 1'' long plugs
I put 3 bags of 50# of lime on it
Works best day after a nice rain
