Could be clogged gas cap. Take the cap off and see if you can blow air through it. If no air passes, the trimmer will become vapor locked and wont be able to get enough gas.

How to set the jets on a 125 weed trimmer. The revs are too high and adjusting the idle screw makes no difference.

The idle screw is just that, for idle. The second screw is for high speed. I'm not real familiar with this motor. Try turning the second screw in or out slowly but not to far, you'll want to make sure you still maintain good throttle response. Hope this helps
