I think some of you are forgetting that it is a day of loading at most... Chris we must be a little more greedy up here our quads are alot taller then yours. The turck in your vid is about the same height as our tandems and tri axles. I will try and snap a pic today if I see one...

if you wanted a two or three or even 5 minute load cycle a 624 sized machine might be warranted. But since you'll have a 15 or 30 minutes per load you don't need a loader. Although one might consider the "herd" effect among truck driver's and that's effect on the day's production.

My T300 will load our Tri-Axle or any Tri-Axle for that matter with out a ramp. But I realize end dumps are generally a little taller. Just make a ramp like Dirtman said if you have too. No need for a loader, especially for only 230 yards.

230 yards is nothing. I would not consider a wheel loader either. Our trucks are not as tall as the ones you guys use out East but I would ramp accordingly (and or dig down where the trucks are going to be loaded). The 85XT has good dump height. I have loaded countless side dump loads with my 95XT and 465s. Sides I am sure are not as tall but as mentioned that can be delt with. Why give your money for a rental when you can keep it in your pocket.

I moved about 500 yards of material with a 980g and two d350 off road trucks. In 30 mins

There is no comparison between a 980 8 yard bucket and a ctl 1 yard bucket. I have loaded centipedes with a t300 it take longer but it will keep money in your pocket vs having to pay for the rental
