    Default Proud New Tractor Owner!

    Greetings!

    Thank you all for your advice over the past months! In the end I've purchased a mid-eighties Yanmar 336D (couldn't quite cough up the cash for a newer kubota, etc...) with 1800 hours. 33hp engine, 27hp PTO, FEL with two buckets and new forks, 4wd, power steering, powershift (shuttleshift, basically), 12 fwd speeds, 4 reverse, delivered (and taxed) total less than 10k from a reputable dealer. I wouldn't have felt confident purchasing it without the help from you folks (and the folks over at the Yahoo Yanmar group-hopefully they'll joins us over here soon!). I'll post pictures once it's delivered and I get to start playing (next weekend hopefully!)

    Thanks again!

    I don't meen to alarm you but, check the bellhousing for cracks. This was a trouble spot for some years of the 336. If no cracks always keep the bellhousing in mind when picking up stuff with the FEL.

    Congrats on your new addition[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]! Of course, you realize that you've now accepted an awesome responsibility. You will find that it will take over your entire life. Your free time will cease to exist because you MUST pay attention to this new responsibility. Failure to dedicate a sufficient amount of time to your new addition's development could result in sleepless nights, ridicule from your peers, and a general feeling of useliness. Don't fall victim to this insideous malady. Get out there and work your tractor EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

    Do you think the wives will buy all that?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img]

    Look forward to seeing some pics [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]. I'm still looking around for what I want to buy, so am always interested in seeing pics of different tractors and getting info. (good or bad!). Have fun!
