If your trailer can accommodate, all metal is the way to go.

i have accelerator's on both of mine and you couldnt give me a steel bagger again to use. Steel is for the scrap yard, aluminum is the way to go.

We have had absolutely no luck with aluminum, plus i dont tig weld only mig so for us steel is the way to go. My guys can bend em up and we can fix steel in house. The aluminum just has not been durable enough for our company.

Accelerator's the way to go. If you want something for for leaf season then look at trac vacs. They have a model made for stand-ons/walk behinds. Has a Brute trashcan that mounts on top of the deck

Get the Accelerator bagger. Don't abuse it and it will last. My last crew destroyed one in one year. Had another crew used one for 2 years and it looked like new.
F***k the steel baggers.
