The electric fuel solenoid may be loosing voltage. Has the connections to the solenoid been checked? Has the solenoid been replaced?

No we have looked after the machine and it is in very very good condition,regular serviced and greased but need someone to advise us with this
I was using it last week and at one stage it cut out within 5 seconds of starting about 20 times in a row.it will also cut out with a bad shudder

Most likely it will be fuel solenoid related!
