I just dont know if they like turning at real low speeds.
An DC EV motor can easily handle low RPMs, you just loose
Efficiency and Cooling

Meaning as long as he doesn't over do the amps at low RPMs it will work just fine, in fact many times low voltage DC motors only spin about that fast.

Where he can run into trouble is when the RPMs start getting in the 1200rpm and lower if he is stomping on it for extended periods.
