MF 9540/Challenger 540c & 45' Macdon FD75

Looking to go to a draper head this coming season, Is anyone pushing a Macdon Fd75 45' in 70 bushel soybeans? How does it handle it? What is the spreader pattern? And is the unloading auger long enough to dump on the go?

I think i would stick with 40 it would work with45 but it would be close. Around here all the guys that had 45s went back to 40s and said they do as much with less problems.

I just took measurements on my unloading auger system & with the 26' auger from the center of combine would reach 29'. A 45' header providing cut is 45 & ends are 1-2' would still leave 1-2' clearance for cart. Am I correct on this? So the grain cart would still work but tight as it would be around 700 bushel per 1/2 mile round. Even if it were too tight I could always add a tip out on the grain cart on the loading side. What could possibly go wrong? Someone please try to talk me out of this???
