Thanks much for the suggestions. I think I've nailed the problem
down: a spool was sticking, which was creating drag, and the sprockets
were getting off-track in the gate/claw assembly. A lubrication and
proper loading solves much of the problem, though it still risks to
get slightly off track now and again, but it's a quick and easy
adjustment. I appreciate the service suggestions; finding service for
these beasts isn't easy.
