Claimshell is the only way I would go if you bag only for spring/fall clean ups. You can back on a trailer and dump or use a leaf loader (I use a leaf loader and dump bed set up).

For the triple bagger....
After the initial installation, the entire catcher assembly can be removed and reinstalled in just minutes without any tools. Just pull three quick-pins, release the belt and lift it off. A 148 gallon (16 bushel, 19.8 cubic feet) capacity hopper collects debris from a blower that pulverizes the debris, reducing particle size and increasing the density inside the bags.

Isn't it amazing what 5 minutes can do if a person actually looks for what they are after? It's a no brainer to go with the bagger if you're doing clean ups and thatching.

I guess SCAG doesn't include the baffles under the deck in the no tools thing. Those would be a hard to take off without them. Lol

Bags hold more so unless you will always be dumping on site I would get the bags. On the flip side I have used walkers and was able to dump on the trailer then unload with a small loader at the end of the day was great.

If I could only have one it would be bags. Good luck.
