We investigate SU(3)-Yang-Mills theory in a systematic vertex expansion scheme for the effective action. Particular focus is put on the dynamical creation of the gluon mass gap at non-perturbative momenta, and the consistent treatment of quadratic divergences. The gluon and ghost propagators as well as the momentum-dependent ghost-gluon, three-gluon and four-gluon vertices are calculated self-consistently. Furthermore, we calculate the two-ghost-two-gluon and the four-ghost vertices and back-couple them into the propagator equations. Apparent convergence of the expansion scheme is shown. The result for the gluon propagators is in quantitative agreement with the corresponding lattice results.
