Truck dilemma help

Not sure how a 3500 can legally carry 8 yards of mulch. I was told 1 yard of dry mulch meaning it hasn't had moisture on it for a week weighs 800 lbs. 8 yards is going to weigh 6400 lbs the average 3500 weighs in at 8800-9400 lbs and has a gvw of 10,700-12,300. So i believe your going to need a 4500 to legally carry 8 yards.
