Dump insert mulch weight

I just outfit a K3500 with 8600 gvw with a truckcraft dump insert (8foot). Although I have had last count 6 dump inserts in the past I am having a problem remembering how well it handled mulch... I am working out details on mulch deliver/spread specials for next spring and am trying to decide what is a safe amount to deliver with this truck. I know 3 is okay, I am hoping for 4.... and some say 5 even is okay? I understand when wet it can weigh 30% more, but assuming its your average moist level... Longest travel would be 4 miles from mulch pickup spot. Looking for input from those who have hauled mulch before with a 8600 gvw truck and insert...
