Air / Pneumatic Tools
Benefits Of Air Tools
Power: Air impact wrenches can produce over 1,000 ft. lbs of torque. Grinders can spin at 60,000 RPMs. Electric counterparts cannot produce this type of power.
Durability: Air tools do not burn up or overload when put under excessive load. If an air tool stalls due to binding, the motor simply does not spin. Windings do not become hot, parts do not melt. The air motor stalls, that's it.
Flexibility: Air tools run off of stored energy generated by a compressor. With an engine driven compressor or a carry tank, air tools can go anywhere. Electric tools must operate near a power outlet.
Lightweight: The average air tool weighs 20% less than its electric equivalent. Electric windings, rotors, and stators outweigh a simple air cylinder by considerable amounts. After a short time, the weight of a tool really becomes noticeable.
Variety: Air Ratchets, Air Impact Wrenches, Air Chisels, and Air Nailers are common air tools that are rarely seen as electrical equivalents. This is because air is an efficient way to transfer energy in certain applications. It takes four times as long to remove a lug nut with an electric impact wrench than with an air impact wrench.
