Don't remember the specifics about the quad, but it was basics only.

    this puzzle seems to need 4 heavy moves

    ( heavy in the context of "basic" moves means: trio-or-larger )

      is this a new record
      or have we seen such before?

      ( compare with JPF # 51 # 80 which needs 2 trios )

Pat,

Yes: It "needs"
R7 Triple
C7 Triple
B9 Quad
C9 Triple

At the last move there is also an R9 Triple that does not help.
