Have you adjusted the locking cam for forward. This cam is held in place with one bolt. The further you move it down the tighter it will make the belt

Is the pull rope in the front or rear of engine.Thinking that the string is in the front,you must throttle housing and shaft from engine. remove starter housing. There sould be a screw holding the string and spring in place.

Hello. Let me assist you. Since your trimmer runs but stalls at ful throttle it is telling you that there is a fuel problem. Not enough gas is getting through the carbeurator to satisfy the engines needs on full throttle. Most likely the carbeurator is gummed up. A common problem. Let's see if we can un gum it by getting a can or carbeurtor cleaner. Go to any auto parts store and talk to the clerk about your need.

The way to move without the motor running...
1.on each wheel pull pin in center of hub
2.push wheel closer to motor.
3.put pin back in to axle but not though hub
4.do the same steps to other wheel
now you can push tiller

I didn't find that exact one either, but recently had to work on my Yard Man 4-Cycle Straight Shaft and used a Troy-Bilt manual for a similar trimmer - worked great.
If you don't find yours at this site, maybe a similar one will work. It looks like the difference is the TB525 receives attachments. If you're trying to fix something right now, here's the manual for that one until you find yours:
