One of the most common causes of this is a failing fuel pump. Sometimes you can set your watch by how long it will run until it conks out. I had one recently in my shop that would run about 18 minutes and quit. Changed the pump out and now it is fine again. You should check all the other things like low oil and dirty filters to be sure and try to see if it might be overheating. Restricted air flow can do this. So check those things and get back to me if you need more on this as all follow ups are included in our fee.
