Appreciate a little advice on using top on unix  using bourne shell

I have a script executed by cron every hour containing the following:

date >> /tmp/toplog
top -d1 -n30 >> /tmp/toplog      # that is do once containing 30 lines

On reading after cron has run, the /tmp/toplog with either cat -v more pg or
vi the output tends to be corrupted.
Is there any formatting that I need to do eg troff or the like.

ps I don't want to use vmstat iostat or sa1 sar sadc etc.
