If you think battery-operated tools are replacing pneumatic tools you should read this.

Everyone at JB Tools appreciates the convenience and versatility of electric and battery-operated tools. We know these devices are great for a variety of applications. For other tasks, you might do better using an air-powered tool. The key is knowing when an air tool, also known as a pneumatic tool, is the better choice. As a dealer of all types of tools, share the ins and outs of air-powered tools to help you make the best decision for your needs.

Advantages of Air-Powered Tools

Air-powered tools don’t use batteries so there’s no need to buy these power sources or the devices to recharge them. That’s not the main advantage of pneumatic tools, though. The real benefits are their efficient use of energy and long-lasting power. As long as the air compressor is operating, these tools keep going. You can work for hours on long jobs with pneumatic tools. Their lightweight design also makes them ideal for working in tight spaces. Pneumatic tools are also very durable and can withstand extreme temperatures and pressures.

What Air-Powered Tools Are Used For

Pneumatic tools are popular in a variety of industries. These include construction, automotive, and industrial work. Depending on the air-powered tool you’re using, you can handle a variety of tasks that include:

  • Drilling
  • Cutting
  • Grinding
  • Polishing
  • Assembling/disassembling
  • Tightening/removing nuts and bolts

Air-powered tools are also used for a variety of tasks in woodworking and metalworking applications.

Some Things to Consider About Air-Powered Tools

These devices require a compressor to operate, of course, and these devices can be bulky. Pneumatic tools also generate a lot of noise, which can be a nuisance in certain environments. Lastly, air tools can generate flying debris while being used. As long as the right safety precautions are taken, these pneumatic tools can provide an effective and cost-efficient solution for various tasks.

While these are things to consider, air-powered tools remain a popular choice for many applications. For beginners looking to get started with pneumatic tools, it’s important to research the various models to find the one that best suits your needs.
