From your description of the problem it is most likely that one or more of the batteries has failed and is dropping Voltage under load. The first thing I would do is individually load test each battery with an automotive battery load tester. Load testing the individual batteries will show you which ones are good and which are bad. 59 or 60 Volts is a very low reading for a 60 Volt battery pack. Each battery in the pack should charge up to 13.8 Volts, so the Voltage of the battery pack should be at 69 Volts when fully charged.

Automotive battery load testers can be purchased from harbor freight for around $20.00 or from auto parts stores for a little more.

Please let us know how it goes.
