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.

Not clear whether you are seeking a riding mower or a smaller compact tractor sometimes called a landscape tractor.

Take a ride to Ryan Tractor at Exit 20 in Tilton and view what is in stock.

Or take a ride to Warner, NH and view the Mahindra tractors.
