Question Water to sink faucet

I have a very odd problem with my kitchen sink. The water pressure hasn't been very good since I did a renovation to the kitchen. I have done everything I can think of, but I am stumped. I finally just bought a new faucet and the problem has just gotten worse. The water flows fine from the valves under the sink, they will fill a bucket in no time flat, but when I connect the hoses to the faucet, nothing. I get just a trickle. The water flows just fine to the dishwasher attached to the same line. HELP!!!! How can the water flow get restricted to a brand new faucet just by attaching the hoses????

Thanks for any suggestions

Did you test the water flow from the hoses unattached to the faucet? When you attach the hoses do they crimp or bend to any significant degree? Are there any loose gaskets or do the gaskets some how move to block the line when the nut is tightened at the end of the hoses when attached to the faucet?Are you sure there is nothing within the fitting and beyond where the hoses attach to or on the faucet?Does the faucet have a sprayer and are you sure the diverter is properly working? Is there any blockage in the faucet aerator at the end of the spout?Do you know this faucet works properly beyond the situation you are experiencing...in other words do you know that this faucet works ok hooked up at another location?

Hot and cold the same rate. Its in the faucet. Take the airiater off. Do you have a sprayer. Take the head off. Do you have good flow out the hose? If so take the divirter out afew days before putting a new one in. What kind of pipes do you have.
