Check the fuel lines for breaks. When they get old, they become brittle.
If this doesn't work, you will need to clean the carburetor. Disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush,(http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in the carb. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. Reassemble and start.
If neither one of these solutions work then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.

Hi..my name is Keith...it sounds like the reeds in your carb needs replacing...usually if you use a carberator cleaner on them..it will ruin them..plus age will make them stiff..they should be as soft a rose petal..and its cheap and inexpensive to replace..but you have to pay attention to how many layers and the shape of the reeds that come out..because the kit that you buy will fix several different carbs..i hope this has helped..if not..write back

sounds like the carb needs to be removed and cleaned. It the chunk of metal that has the fuel line going to it on top of the engine.
Use a phillip screwdriver and possible a small ratchet to break it down and clean it thuroghly with gasoline.
After you get it back together and have cleaned it up as much as possible, crack her up with full choke again. this time though, allow it to run and barely ramp up the rpms enough to give it a little lug. When the engine seems to begin losing power, (these adjustments should be as small as possible until you get her running smooth) dial the choke back just enough to ramp up the rpms. This will probably take a few tries, but most definately should work in your case.
Once the trimmer is running smooth with the choke off you will be good to go.
Many times our trimmers and other 2cycle engines dont get the proper attention to keep them running up to par. Take the time to consider the unique properties of your tools to determine any possible future repair. Anytime you have and engine that burns a home mixed fuel there will be the risk of trash in the fuel system
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!! :D

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor. Sounds like you have gotten some trash in the cauburetor, check your fuel container to see if more trash is in it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me,
I hope this helped
