I think Toro corp looked at its overall sales and said it was just not worth while to continue to make the 26 when the timemasters first year was such a huge success and the commercial world interested in a hearty version. Just like any new product it will take time to refine but the over all fiddle factor will be negligible in the overall time savings.
They sure didn't mind trying to sell them in the south even though they didn't have southern grass in mind. Luckily I didn't buy one then and be the guinea pig, and I won't buy a 30 in either until its a proven machine.
