Any job site is going to have a cluster of tools, mostly a mixture of electric and pneumatic depending on the contractor’s needs or inventory. As tools have progressed, the buying decisions have become more difficult. Especially when it comes to the question of - air powered or motor-driven?
Saving money and adding to the bottom line for any contractor, or do-it-yourselfer, plays in to most tool buying decisions. So let’s highlight five reasons that going with pneumatic tools may make sense for you.
- Faster. More power + cycles per minute = more efficiency. The driving force of the air compressor delivers greater pounds per square inch (psi) than can be generated by hand.
- Ease of Use. Simply attach to an air supply.
- Not Shocking. Work when and where it’s wet without worry of electrical shock. Another bonus, no sparking from pneumatic tools.
- Easier to handle. Air tools tend to be smaller, lighter and easier to control. And when storage or transport space is limited, you can store up to three times more pneumatic tools in the same space as electric-powered tools.
- Durability. Pneumatic tools may last longer than electric ones due to their robust design. While electric tools could burn up, air tools run cooler and are less affected by dirt.
From small to large jobs, pneumatic tools can speed up the job and save money.
