12" you sure?
with that info it'll move the heavy beast just fine..
not fast.. but fine
in fact it'd do so with way more than 2000 lbs !!

So excuse me, but I think you mistook wheel diameter for rim diameter
those look like 22" on 12" rims to me
[
EDIT]
shoot 12" rim bearclaws are 25" in diameter...
let's fix that...
and with that gear ratio is off
you'll need more teeth on the axle...

PROBLEMSYou might burn your clutch/belt!
Gear ratio too high!
Suggested final ratio: at least 9.7:1
something like 7780 teeth should work fine on the axle if you keep the 8T TC sprocket
if you want to keep the ratio fixed..
you need a 21hp engine to move the 992 total weight I assumed above.
the more the better
