    I have a brand new 2011 Trac Vac 470 for my walkbehind. I have never used it on a leaf job. I am debating selling it and saving 1100 bucks and getting a accelerator bagger with leaf extender. Im wondering what some of you other gentlemen would do. I am planning on having about 20-25 fall cleanups this year, but through the year I may bag a few yards and I dont want to have to mount the trac vac on everytime to bag. So I figured eliminate the vac and get the accelerator. All advice is appreciated!

    The accelerator, no second thoughts and I have owned both. The trac vac will hold more but that is one aggravationg &*&** thing to use when the accelerator is so easy to take on and off. And it take up a LOT less room on the trailor.
