I'm curious, do you use the Honda's the least since you have the bravos and Ex. 30's?
We rarely use the honda. My son had taken it over as his own to mow my personal property. The 30 is significantly faster. Was looking over time trials from 5 years ago when we were using the honda 21 on specific properties. Going from the 21 to the 26 we cut our time by 19% going from the 26 to the 30 we cut our time by another 15% and calculating if we went strait from the 21 to the 30 we cut 39.2% in time savings so a 20 minute lawn went to 12 minutes.
