I don't know anything about bucket trucks but it sounds like your oil is getting too hot. Might not be hot by hydraulic standards but hot enough to cause problems for you. Check the oil cooling system if it has one. Might be a wore out pump causing the issue both heat and diminished lifting. If it is a wore out pump, thicker oil or a better cooler might keep it going other than replacing the pump.
