Has the fuel filter been changed recently? I have seen them get restricted enough to act that way. A lot of them never got changed unless there was a problem.

I agree may be starved for fuel. Are you running on liquid after it warms up. Liquid should give more power.

Might need to retard the timing. My UB Special propane did the same thing and it was a timing issue.

Could be starving for fuel. If there are no other apparent causes for starvation, try backing out the economizer on the carburetor, one turn at a time. A lot of them were "trimmed out" for doing light work. Take it out a turn, try it and repeat and see if it helps.
