John, I could have sworn that we went off road on stuff steeper than what you state is your steepest. Chuck is right with the math: it takes 120 feet of rise in 120 feet of run to be a 45 degree slope (100 percent grade). As far a machine limitations or causes for concern, I don't think you have any. Any engine or model should not have fuel starvation problems (assuming a clean system). I still think your tire pressure is part of your handling concern. The bigger the machine, the more secure people will feel in it and the heavier it is, the smoother it will ride (again assuming correct tire pressure).
