Question for PM 3520 owners

Carole in VA
>(and vertically challenged turners.) I notice that the Powermatic 3520A has a spindle to floor distance of 44". Is the height adjustable on this and other full size lathes? I am about 5'5" and I have my Mini at about 39". 44" would be really uncomfortable for me and I have no doubt that if I had to stand on a 5" platform, I would eventually break my neck!
