That can become the limiting factor in a heavy crop.
2015 760. I am not sure which feeder drive it has. It was ordered as a corn machine, so I am thinking it would be the heavier drive.

For us, a 40 bushel durum crop is a good year. It would be a rare year where I would be challenging the separation capacity, I think. I generally am running as fast as the machine will go with a 40' head on it already.

The reason I want the stripper is to hopefully catch more snow in the winter and to keep more standing residue for next year's crop. I don't anticipate seeing much of a gain in harvesting speed.

They do trap snow and conserve moisture. I bought a new cvs32 a year before the wet cycle started here 8 or 9 years ago and fought with mud and straw mat daily so sold it and it quit raining so thinking about getting another one. On 40 to 60 durum Second gear stick full forward in most conditions with a class 7 I grew some Sadash that went near 100 same speed. If straw is tough or a bit green and seed is ready which it can be I could burn up a not cheap VS belt or break shear bolts on stripper so that would limit forward speed. Not sure how the newer models are driven if they have same drives those wide models might give grief in tougher conditions. If you grow flax you won’t find a better method of harvesting it it is definitely a good flax header. A negative if you have a healthy deer population you will have a population explosion as they love to hide out in stripped cereal straw and shed their horns there tire repair gets really costly. I hope you have tracks on your lex and seeding outfit.

Had our biggest snow year in 40 years the winter after my first year stripping. Crop that is.
Snowmobilers loved it, snow like in the mountains only flatter!
My cousin, never taken to compliment, repeatedly thanked me for keeping snow off the the mile of east/west road between us.

I had only two limitations, feeder drive belt slip (wrong drive and never broke the SR shear bolt) but in a thinner crop 15km/hr.
