Default Lawn/Garden Tractor Talk

Greetings!
Since I replaced my snowblower this past winter, I've been thinking about upgrading my tractor this summer. I currently have a Craftsman LT3000 42" that, with only (good) fuel and new oil at the end of each season, hasn't skipped a beat.
I know "garden" tractors are "heavier duty," but do any come stock with tow hitches? I use mine with a custom-welded hitch to tow my splitter and utility trailer around, but I know it's probably taxing the machine a bit.
I'd also be interested in other things to consider, including transmission style, engine size, etc. I won't be using it with a bucket or snowblower attachment or anything like that, I just want a tough(er) machine that can do some towing.
