You should test a diesel mower. The other day I cleaned up a lawn for a real estate developer that is a good customer of mine. The lawn was a foreclosure that hadn't been mowed all year. Yeah, all year, and that is the first time my mower was ever under a load. You won't put one under a load just mowing. Too much torque for that.
