My grandfather would send my brother and I out to the field with a garden hoe to uncover what he covered up. Removing weeds with a rotary hoe works better the faster you go. I ran ours a couple times, looked exactly like the one pictured but was red, don't remember the brand

Like said the implement in the first post picture is made from available parts of that time.. Rotary clod breaker usually behind a chisel or other field digger..
When I ran machine shop for a turf care equipment manufacturer, the thinking was core aeration was best option.. Replace able spoons is a plus.. Easier to penetrate the ground.. Not as much equipment weight needed to make it work.. I find out now they even make a machine to sweep up the plugs, shred them and broad cast them back over the turf..
In the group of implement pictures shown, my choice would be the 3pt one with 3 short barrels of core spoons.. Easy to use without any or much extra weight.. Segmented drum will turn corners, into and out of tight corners easier etc.. But then I can't use one at all on this rock pile..

That is, in fact, a rotary hoe. It was very popular many years ago to knock out the weeds in a corn field, before the advent of chemical spray. Big Jim 55, you did not keep it between the rows. You just ran it over the crop, just keep the tractor tires between the rows. I had one of these for the purpose of aerating, but traded it back to the same guy last year for an 8ft rock rake after moving up to a bigger tractor. My yard now will never be good enough to waste the time on aerating. Plus there is too many acres. This works great as an aerator, but the faster you go, the better it will work, so keep that in mind. What you see in the pic is just a single section of what had been several sections for a much larger area.

We use a rotary hoe for one purpose only. When the soil crusts over recently planted soybeans due to heavy pounding rain, the soybeans do not have the strength to penetrate the crust. So, we use (driving very fast) to break up the crust. Sometimes it works great.
Usually, it is just a last ditch effort to avoid replanting.
I would not run a rotary hoe on my yard.
