    Serial number please.
    Does this machine have the optional high flow? Also have you rechecked over every thing you have done?

    Hi sounds like your pump is stroked up for some reason
    First off start the machine and operate the RH joy stick in all positions including the thumb wheel and buttons if equipped and note the engine condition, if one position does not make a difference let us know
    if no difference from above, disconnect and block the hose going to the pump control valve and try the machine to see if the engine still loads up
    this should tell us if you have a problem with the pump stroking up or not

    It sounds like your pump is stroking up, either by a faulty control on the pump or mechanical issues i.e. swash plate locked up
    Have you the ability and tooling to check pump pressures?
