I agree with the comments about Briggs&Stratton engines... they used to be "Thee Standard" but I hate them in so many ways with the stupid ideas and poor construction...

SO,,, does the commercial 30 exmark/toro have a good engine, like a Honda???

The new 30" Toro's will almost certainly be parts donors LONG before even a used commercial 32". While there is a place for them, most would do better with the used walk behind. I have the Kaw on my Toro 21". It's great there. Sure wouldnt want to cut dense Zoysia with it on a 30". As Lawnboy Dan said, ill keep my Toro 32". At roughly double the HP, with the ability to pull a sulky, it makes it a lot easier when the heat comes.

The purpose of the Timemaster is to have a pushmower that can operate w/out taking so many trips around the yard and with a lot less damage around obstacles than a rider...
