    I have a 428d with like 1900hr's on it and the controls a real sponge. After a hour or s the mower will slow down and after 4 hours it real slow... What do you think PumpS? When it cold it is bad fast...

    I would go ahead and change the hydro. oil and filter.
    also, check your hydro. belt and tension idler. your belt may be getting hot and starting to slip as it gets hot. Any slippage = less power at the wheels.
