Line is constantly breaking on my 20V B&D trimmer. Have tried 2 new spools with no luck.
Strimmer line is consumed constantly in use either by wear against abrasive surfaces or being snagged against stems and suchlike it can't cut through and so tends to break. With lots of patience a lot of those stems can eventually be cut.
Early strimmer users became fed up with the process of stopping work, upturning the machine and releasing more line and starting over and so in order to maintain sales the bump and automatic feed heads were developed.
You description suggests you are using your low powered grass trimmer for heavier work than it is designed for.

Surface cleaner won't spin
I agree, the teflon rings appear to br the only things that wear (aside from the hole size which could wear from water abrasion, but unlikely). That would explain the metal to metal sound you hear at times because the seals prevent wobbling.

I can’t get my sthil bg86c blower to rev up properly, obviously I have changed filters, plug and cleaned everything including gas filter now I’m stumped
It could be a weak spark but most likely it is not receiving the fuel it needs for full throttle operation.
Assuming the fuel is fresh and there isn't an excess of oil this can be tested to some degree by opening the throttle fully and then partially applying the cold start if it can be applied separately or partially covering the intake of the carb with a finger if it can't.
If this improves things it proves the mixture is too lean and it could be a blockage or a matter of adjustment.
One thought occurs - if it was ok before being idle over winter, it is possible the crankshaft oil seals have lost flexibility and air is being drawn past them into the crankcase.

My Hydrostatic transmission is slipping. starts out strong, then after 30 min. will barely go up the hill...ideas?
Perhaps the fluid has become contaminated and is foaming and/or one or more filters is being partially blocked after running a while. Perhaps also the fluid is boiling due to a lowered boiling point caused by contamination.
The fact it is ok while cold is likely to indicate the trouble is related to one or all of the above and so cleaning or replacing the filters and replacing the fluid seems the most appropriate initial action and if the trouble persists the next step will be to check the pump is maintaining the rated pressure when hot...
