Thanks for the update. You are having a feed roller problem then. Check inside the hydraulic filter for signs of metal/debris indicting a potential pump/component ( drive motor) failure occurring. If ok, check the control valve for full engagement in both directions as well as remove and inspect the relief valve cartridges for debris and damaged o rings causing them the stick or a bypass of pressure. Let me know..
