I'd have the filter/dryer replaced...the expansion valve adjusted...correct pressures and a new belt put on there....then see if it still happens

You are low on freeon . But sounds more like the cluch on the compressor is going out! or the compressor it self

is there a high and low limit switch in this system, it works great without a load then when I throttle it goes off. I can let off wit 5 seconds and it comes on full blasting cold air
