Need to purchase walk behind aerator

After years of renting a walk behind aerator we are looking to purchase. We always rent a blue bird walk behind (we own a pull behind for the bigger jobs). I hate the Blue Bird, it does an decent job but it is hard to maneuver and kills our backs raising the lever every time we need to turn or raise the tines. Looking at the Ryan or Plugr, any thought or recommendations?

Any aerator is hard work, I have a Ryan and its solid, but still takes effort to manuever, the turfco ones seems nice but you still cant make a 90 degree turn with it, any way you slice it aerating is a chore, just suck it up and keep going, but I would reccomend a Ryan.
