Robin Hedge Trimmer Fuel Supply Problem

    I have some Robin hedge trimmers (HT221) that run great when the fuel tank is full, or almost fuel. As the fuel level begins to go down, and depending on the angle the trimmer is held, the gas supply is cut off, or is not being pulled into the engine.

    Would appreciate any thoughts and advice about what may be causing this and how to fix.

    The most obvious thing to check is whether or not the intank fuel filter is staying immersed in fuel regardless of position.

    Or a cracked fuel line in the tank.
