you'll like the comfort. The 940 is underpowered for what it has. Big time cleaning area but little short on power. What size heads will you be running? Very nice combine and big steps forward in terms of technology vs the Deere. But still short on power some what. You'll like it. Where abouts are you from?

Take care,

Nathan

It'll play with the 25ft. I know of a guy in N.C. that runs a 35ft on his. It'll do 5mph in corn yes untill you unload on the go. If you do. Then it could have power problems.

Take care,

Nathan
