Yea, it's either too heavy or something is binding the motor. You can see the reindeer motor cycle a small bit and then reverse itself over and over.
I think your only hope is a stronger motor.

Could I lighten it up by using pvc instead of wood, if not is there any motors that are cheap besides a wiper motor?
making your rig lighter would be a good start. That board you have running from your motor looks a bit too heavy. I would make another suggetsion, make sure you place a washer in between all of your pivot points if you have not done so already. Adding a little grease to each side of the washer during assembly would help too.

you might be able to find a rotissere motor cheaply if you look around. I used one in my first grave grabber design and it worked well. ;)

If you take the shirt and hands off, will it work properly? Is the mechanism catching anywhere? These motors have a decent amount of torque, I think you are hitting something.
