Use when the ground is damp and add some real weight on top of it. But all it does is make punctures in the ground not like a tiller. Look for a Mantis Tiller or something like it. Always check the estate sales in your local merchandizer to see what is offered. I've seen full size tillers go for less than $100.
I am sure with additional weight added to hold it down that the process would make some impact on breaking up ice on a gravel driveway. Of course you might as well just scrap the Spike Aerator afterwards as you have totally defeated the purpose for what it was designed for. The spikes are not made to puncture gravel, rock, concrete or hard soil and will end up being bent and damaged thus when you want to do what it was designed for, aerating your yard it will not work efficiently. Great unit if used properly.
Comes in a box and you have to assemble it. Quiet easy to put together, just watch your fingers on the blades as they are pretty sharp.

Should be. It worked with my craftsman.
Yes and no. Depending on the weight you put on the aerator it may damage the sprinkler heads or damage the tines. I put flags on the sprinkler heads to avoid the possibility of damaging heads or tines.
