looking to by somewhere around a 48" zero turn mower.
It will be either a john deere, Kubota, or Ferris.

are they all pretty much the same as far as life of the mower ? and im lookin at the maintenance on them too

How many JD mowers have you owned? I'm surprised you didn't say Dixie Chopper is the "best".

I like my john Deere 757, no problems to date in 2 years. But go with the mower that YOU like the most, no one can tell you whats best, only can recomend. Also,, the biggest thing is dealer support.
