Yes 3,500lb axles will support the load technically. The issue is that a 5,200lb axle will last much longer under daily use and be more versatile for other uses like a small tractor, or large load of mulch. This could also be easily towed by a used 3/4 ton gas truck bought for less than $10K.
Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.
