lots of capacity, easy to set and adjust...very forgiving settings. limiting factor in wheat seems to be feederhouse capacity. Awesome cab, very quiet and smooth, fairly easy to change concaves, strong smooth engine that starts great. Simple design, great lights for night work and undershield lighting is great as well. things like chopper speed and rotor gearbox low/high range is fast and simple to change....very little daily maintenance. Downside....dealer support in some areas, some parts are overnight, others take some time. Poor hydraulics and hydrostat all the way around. Multifunction lever is not smooth and our hydro surges our speed up and down. Probably will have a few leaks within the first year or two, poor anti-dribble on unloading auger, however it unloads super quietly and very smooth engagement. You can't hardly hear it run. Hope that helps

36 minimum, 40 ft. is nice, 42 and 45 is getting up there, the machine will handle it, and allow you to slow up for more control....otherwise ground speed has to be way up there to keep the machine full
