Question about Echo Garden
The only thing that came in my mind for you to check is from the fact that they had power at first ..and the power was lost after a few hours of using ...them ...and the fact that the only way that you can feel the lack of power is when you actually have them in load..It is something wrong with the clutch ...and the only thing that can be is that it is slipping ...To confirm this ...it is enough if the motor seams to accelerate itself when forced but no grip actually feels to be on ..but kinda moan sound when in load..
For this you will have to change the disks for the clutch ..or to see if they have adjust screws on the clutch lid..
to explain a little ..the system for the clutch is on disks..that slide when engaged and grip on each other when released..and if those disks ..are not well adjusted( or they are well-worn) ..and slip on each other all the time they will not transfer the power from the motor to the gear box..and this is the issue with the power loss..
So ...Im not sure of the system for this model ..but usually they have some screws on the lid that cover the dicks .and once tide ..those screws will adjust the space between the disks that move with the motor ..and the ones that engage the gear box..and this way they will not slip on each other once the clutch released..Be ware not to do it too much cause in this case..they will be in gear all the time ..
If they have not such system (can be the case and the difference between the 2 models and the actual reason for the second model to act like this..) and only have some kinda sping hooked on the lid.. to keep the disks together ..than you will have to find a way to tide them together ..by adding one more pare of disks.....
Im suggesting this cause I found that problem in some model of motorcycle.and it was terrible ..they didnt have adjustable lid.for the clutch ..and you had to change the clutch disk every few month..
I hope this will help ..cause I can not see any other reason for the lack of power..if this wasn't a characteristic of them from the start..
