Makita Back Pac Blower Quits After 30 Minutes

I have a Makita blower it starts right up and runs for 20-30 minutes then quits. Plug, spark arrestor, fuel and lines are ok. Any suggestions to whats wrong.

If you check for spark at the time it dies and there is no spark - then suspect the coil. If you have spark when it dies then check the fuel tank venting system.
