Question Aluminum Ladder Stands?

Does anyone make an aluminum ladder stand anymore? I have an old API stand that is only 12 ft high but it is very easy to carry and move compared to steel ladder stands. I have had this stand for about fifteen years and never had any safety issues so I wonder why no one seems to market aluminum ladder stands anymore. I feel it is also much safer than climbing or hang on stands.

Is price of aluminum high again? I was bringing scrap in and he would only pay for aluminum. The steel I needed #500s to get paid, if I remember right. Also some people think aluminum will collapse under their weight. I got aluminium ramps for snowmobile and ATV. I have had some welds on hinges fail though.

HAHA< and this is a pretty OLD tread to boot?

I'll add a little funny here
I had a super nice aluminum ladder stand, a buddy wanted to borrow it due to it was so light and easy to carry/set up

he walked WAY back into a 25,000+ acre track of land, set it up
then walked out, planning to go back the next day
to date he has never found it again
it WAS a nice stand too LOL
wish I remembered who made it, as I would have gotten a few more I think
but, it was never seen again that I know of! HAHA!
