ASL300/RC-30 Loses power when digging.

Hello all,
This is my first post, so many apologies in advance.
My Polaris ASL 300 which I have been told is the same machine now as the RC-30, is that correct? Well, I have had it for about 7 years and really can’t complain, I have two buckets and a backhoe attachment, which digs wonderfully, usually.
Recently, the machine started giving me this issue. I start it as usual. Warm day, start it up, let it idle for a bit while I get things lined out to dig. But now, everytime I start to use the hydraulics to operate the bucket, either the backhoe, or just the regular scoop bucket, it causes the engine to start idling down. And if I put too much of a load or strain on it, it will even stall out the engine. Now I can coax it along and get it to dig, but not well. Also, as I am driving across the lot, if I am moving along, and put too much into the steering, it will cause the engine to slow down. Any amount of use on the hydraulics causes the engine to idle down.

 

thanks!
