Pneumatic Tools
Useful & Powerful

Just about any tool you can think of has a pneumatic version - powered by compressed air. Pneumatic tools include impact wrenches, ratchet wrenches, sanders, polishers and buffers, belt sanders, grinders, cut off tools, drills, nailers and stapling guns, screwdrivers, impact and jackhammers, chipping hammers, scalers, die grinders, and riveting guns. Other tools include air grease guns, spray guns, tire buffers, air caulking gun, air scribes, and reciprocating saws. Pneumatic tools make your job quicker and easier, but caution is the keyword.

Respect the power of compressed air. Besides reviewing the manufacturer's instructions on lubrication and maintenance, here are a few guidelines to keep in mind when considering repair:

  • Protection - Wear safety glasses or goggles, or a face shield and, where necessary, safety shoes or boots and hearing protection.
  • Consider Neighboring Workers -- Post warning signs and set up screens or shields to reduce exposure to flying fragments, chips, dust, and excessive noise.
  • Check Air Supply – Be sure it’s clean and dry and free of dust, moisture and corrosive fumes.
  • Attachments -- Use only those recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Assess and Determine -- Use the right tool for the job.
  • Reduce Physical Fatigue -- Support heavy tools with a counter-balance wherever possible.
  • Hoses – Again, it’s extremely important to refer to your operator’s manual. Use hoses specifically designed for your compressor and pneumatic tool and use recommended fittings for the correct diameter. Check them regularly for bulges and wear.
