Don't buy one. I can tell you Honda ventured into the larger than 21" mower realm once and they won't do it again. I would buy another in a heart beat. I can tell you we use to service 18 yards a day with a 21, then bumped to a 26 and could service 25-28 and now service 30-36 with the 30. near double what the 21 did. Yes there may be problems but that is what we keep back up mowers for. I have yet to have a problem on my exmark 30 and only broke both cables on the toro 30. The guys prefer the exmark 30 over the toro turfmaster.
