Driving on the beach

I currently got offerd a job to tow a generator onto the beach then pick it back up the next day. The generator is a tandem axle and weighs 7000ibs. I currently have 35/12.5 cooper s/t on my truck now. Do you think i could do it or would i have a hard time?

I just got back from my gf's house on the outer banks. We took my truck on the beach, i have 35" toyo at2s. At first i didnt air down the tires very far and felt the truck struggling through the deeper softer sand. After i aired down much more till about 30/35 the truck was much better. Sounds like a heavy genny but i think if you air down the tires and try and stay on the hard pack if possible you should be ok. Airing down is your friend, good luck!

Do you at least get to hang out at the kind of party on the beach that requires a three and a half ton generator?
