Pneumatic tools are compressed air driven power tools powered by an air compressor, or tools powered by portable compressed carbon dioxide cylinders.
A pneumatic tool can operate indefinitely as long as the attached air compressor can continuously deliver the required volume and pressure without interruption.
Pneumatic tools have tons of advantages but also come with a few disadvantages as well. One of the primary benefits of pneumatics is the price. Individual tools are far less expensive than their electric counterparts. Pneumatic tools also come with a degree of safety in wet environments or in places where sparks from electric motors can be dangerous.
When paired with a capable air compressor, a pneumatic tool can deliver tremendous amounts of torque or operate for incredible durations of time. In the case of paint sprayers, pneumatics deliver superior results and can effortlessly apply large volumes of paint to nearly any project.
Pneumatic tools can seem complicated, but they’re generally quite safe and can last a lifetime with a small amount of maintenance. If you’re looking for durable tools that can work as hard as you do, pneumatic tools can be a great option for any homeowner.
