Sounds like the governor is getting worn or the linkages from the hand control/governor/throttle are getting a lot of cumlative wear that the governor cannot correct for. You might try running a string from the throttle link back to the drivers seat and gently try to add throttle with the string when the engine slows down. If you can add throttle doing that you probably have worn governor pins/weights. They are available for replacement.
