Cuts out after 10 minutes

Rebuilt carb adjusted high and low, runs perfect for a while then starts to cut out and does.
I wait few minutes and choke for 1 sec then turn choke off and runs great again.
Seems something to do with holding unit up cutting my 6 foot high hedge?
Have adjusted high and low jets after warm up to where it runs great.
Not new at this, retired marine machanic.

Sounds like fuel tank vent problem , air has to get into tank
sometimes its vented by fuel cap but a lot of hedge trimmers use
a duck bill valve right thru tank or hooked to hose .
To test if this might be the problem loosen gas cap when it starts to die .
good luck

Clean your cab out

May need a carb rebuilt kit
Go into any parts store and tell them you need a carb rebuilt kit and make sure to know your model number. I don't see it listed anywhere in your question.

I have a tb25cs weed eater. I have cleaned the carb and replaced fuel lines. It cranks up easy, and runs fine while the choke is on. As soon as I pull the trigger and the choke dis-engages, it cuts off. If...

Sounds like 2 things-either your not letting the engine warm up to near operating temps before fully disenguaging the choke or the run jet (in the carb) is gummed -up.Old gas has the same effect. A teaspoon of Berrymans Chemtool added to afull tank of gas will clear out the gummy **** in the carb. When I start my 10 year old weedeater I pay attention to how cold it is to start with. When it's below 65 degrees I have to run it at 1/2 choke for a couple of minutes provided-that the air/fuel adjustment screw is at the optimal adjustment(per owners manual instructions).

Honda snowblower, starts well, and runs smoothly on idle, however on max throttle it cuts out; the choke part of the throttle seems to work fine too. Any idea what the problem is?

give it a little throttle, just before it cuts out. and adjust the carb, screws for best performance. if it will not run good after the adjustment. then the carb needs rebuilt, it may have dirt in it! good-day !

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
5) replace gaskets/diaphragms
b) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb

I have a union power pressure washer it runs for 10 minutes and then cuts off and wont work again, it still needs the choke on when the engine is warm and only runs for a few seconds

"it still needs the choke on when the engine is warm and only runs for a few seconds"
This sounds like a fuel problem such as the carb needs cleaning

My 125cc single cylinder (pulse adrenaline) cuts out at junctions

Since the bike is new, chances are strong that fuel IS the problem.
Also chances are that the carb is perfectly fine. Since the bike is new I'll bet yoy have washed it several times already. The dealer may have washed it also. Fuel is the problem because bikes do not run well on water.

Drain the carb. Remove the water trap bowl on the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Look at the gas in the bowl. Any water in the bottom of the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the petcock. any water in the cup? I am very hopefull this will fix the problem. With a new bike and a clean carb and fuel system not much else should be wrong.
