The Dingo's are very slow. They are great for hauling rock or mulch in small areas though. I would hesitate on buying one for lawn renovations. I would just rent or buy a good core aerator depending on how many lawns you do.
Also, have you priced these yet? Very expensive. Unless you have a use for them every week, just rent one when needed.

Do you have an ATV? That is what I use to aerate. I bought a core aerator from HD and it works great. I know a lot of guys here will say they are junk, but I doubt they have actually used one. Mine gives the same results as the commercial WB's.

PJBinder-

If you've got a zero turn, check out the link at the top of the page for Gator rator.. Bryant is one of our sponsors and has what looks to be an excellent product. It mounts to the front of the ZTR and uses the weight of the mower to puncture the ground.

HD=Home Depot. The Gator Rator looks like a very nice attachment. It is quite pricey though. I would have to see one in action to see if they are worth the investment.

Look into a 463 BOBACT SKID STEER

It is only 36" Wide
Fits throu gates

They do make a spike aerator for it.
Cost almost the same as the Dingo or kangos

I am still thinking about buying the one for 8k
