    my trimmer will start and run for about 10 minutes and then, it will cut out. About 4 to 5 minutes later will start again and run for a bit.

    Does this sound like a tune up or is it my choke?????

    its not the choke. your spark plug may quit on you after it heats up - change that first. if it still dies on you then quickly check tha spark from the coil because it may be failing upon heat up. check the fuel tank vent (cap) it may not be working and not letting fuel go to the carb.
