Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Sounds like you have a hydraulic issue holding the engine under a load. If the engine cranks slowly but then will turn over once you pull a hydraulic function it means that either you have a pump problem, return restriction, or a valve sticking holding pressure in a circuit. Check the hydraulic filter for metal/debris indicating a pump or component failure occuring. Let me know
