Can anyone recommend a good pull behind aerator?

    I tried using a core aerator from a department store and it wasn't doing a very good job. How deep should an aerator penetrate the soil?...I know doing it after a rain helps. I just want a decently priced aerator that I can pull with a lawn tractor, and will do a good job. Thanks for any help.

    I have been renting a Ryan tow-behind. It works well. I tow it with a 52"ZTR, or an old 18hp riding mower. It does an excellent job. I can do a 20,000 sq/ft lawn in about an hour...riding.
