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

Make sure you rebuilt the carb with a carb kit. Put a hose on each pipe coming out of the carb and blow and suck on them. One should seal completely and one should provide vacuum. If there is a leak, you need new check valves. If you rotate the trimmer and it runs poorly, you may have a pierced diaphragm.

Kit doesn't like being sat unused, especilly if its sat with fuel in it. Make sure you drain all the old fuel as this will no doubt have gone stale. Use fresh fuel, remove and clean the plug. You may have to clean the carb out and possibly replace internal carb gaskets if they have perished.

My toro weed trimmer starts good runs great for a few minutes then starts to bogg out then dies, will start back up but won't stay running.i already replaced the fuel tank, lines and filter.

Check the air filter isn't dirty.
If the machine runs ok on high speed but cuts out while idling, the idle speed may be too low. There is usually an adustment screw for increasing the speed.
If the fuel line is a flexible type which moves around inside the tank, check it is able to move freely because if you are cutting at awkward angles, the end of the line can end end up above the surface of the fuel, **** in air and airlock the line. You can eliminate this as the problem by fully filling the tank.
Check whether there is a one way check valve on the tank. This vents air into the tank as the fuel leaves for the carburettor. Sometimes particles of dirt can get stuck in this.

Toro line trimmer model TB90BC

First you may want to check your fuel that is in the tank, how old is the fuel and was there any old fuel in the tank before you put fresh fuel in? Todays gas isn't as good as it used to be the ethonol in fuel is eating pretty much anything that is made of rubber in our 2 & 4 cycle engines cleaning doesn't always help. You may want to try a rebuild kit for it. And re-adjust the high and low idle needles (jets).
