Well, normally we look to the big construction equipment for this type of thing. Things like the Terex Titan, Caterpillar 793 and 797, and similar large trucks. But most tend to have 6 wheels (even when they just have a single dually axle in the rear)

So it's probably going to be something like the Caterpillar 994 loader, like this one, here loading into one of the biggest trucks in the world, the Cat 793 (about the same size as a Terex Titan)
