I'll put one of my 5-speeds in 4th gear and you are more than welcome to come try and "walk" behind it, now in the early spring 4-5 normal sized lawns isn't too awful but on a 90-degree day I don't expect you to make it much past the first yard or two.

Mower like that has more power, speed, and weight than three of us do.
It will pull your truck out of a ditch.

So either better start out slow, or get a sulky.
Like 2nd, or 3rd gear on a transmission, we're talking maybe 3 miles per hour.
I tested a trimstar in high gear you better be ready to run with it
