    personally the 336 is not goiing to be enough tractor,,,,,, if i had my choice i would go with one from the 40 to 65 horse range ,, after going through several tractors of the 21 to 40 horse range i settled with a massey 65 with a loader,,, does everything ill ever need it to do ...
    good luck
    Rick

    As mentioned tractorbynet has a great yanmar fourm. The 336 is a nice tractor I have its little brother the ym165 and a grey market 1802.

    Yanmars are nice little tractors however once you get to the 40hp range there economics start falling apart. A used domestic JD, IH,MAssey in the 40 and up catagory cost about the same as the yanmars in the same HP range.

    Also when you get into the 40hp range your usually taking a commerical venture where time is money. While I love my Yanmars, I wouldnt want to risk my business waiting for parts from japan. As a utility secondary tractor they would be fine, as a primary tractor I would be concerned.
