I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crackor split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure

Stihl recommends 50:1 with 89 octane fuel and their oil (semi synthetic 50:1 is what we use)
be sure to use stabilizer also to help with ethanol fuel issues
check your exhaust screen for clean also
stihls plug gap is .020

i wouldnt use 25:1

My stihl whipper snipper loses power and cuts out when i try to rev and apply throttle.


With 2 strokes I always start with 'AIR' 'FUEL' 'SPARK' from the sounds of it the choke might be stuck on (choking the motor ha ha) also check the air filter, You have fuel and its moving through but the fuel filter might be slightly clogged. As its starting and going on low your spark unit is ok but you might need a new spark plug.

I have a stihl 2 stroke petrol whipper snipper. It seems to have over heated at the reel end. I have smoke and grease spewing out at that end (metal neck at the reel end) have I fried it?


Sounds like you have a straight shaft trimmer version that have got bad bearing(s) that needs replacing. It probably will take the whole gearbox as a replacement item.

Ryobi Whipper Snipper starts, runs but doesn't like to rev, as if it's either flooding or sucking too much air


you've answered your question i would be inclined to be looking at adjusting the high low idle mixture settings and checking for a good spark also check the exhaust is free of obstruction may have a blockage
