Popularity of the pneumatic tools mostly lies in the construction and industry fields. In most cases the highest numbers of people using the tools were the construction and industry workers. The advantages of the tools have spread to other workers and the popularity of the tools is highly increasing. There is a common belief that the pneumatic tool was only a tool that was huge for industrial use. The belief has been downsized aw there are other smaller tools that are well suited for DIY projects at home. The power source of the tools can be stored compressed gas in tanks thus allowing for portability.
The gas tanks that make the pneumatic tools portable are of different sizes and weights. This makes it possible for the users to transport the tool from one location to another. Since the tools make use of hoses to deliver the gas to the tool, then the reach of the tool may be elongated. The risks that are involved in using the hoses are slipping off and collapse of the hose. The construction of the hose has made the hoses reliable in such that they are fitted with anti slip end locks. Collapsing of the hoses when pressure is applied on them has been reduced by an anti collapse piping structure.
The price of the tools is also relatively lower. The compressed gas ran tools are relatively cheaper when compared to their equivalents, especially in terms of power. The price of operation is also relatively low. The built of the pneumatic tools help in saving the operational costs. The tools are durable and require very little maintenance when used as recommended. Since they do not rely on the electrical circuitry, there are limited chances of breaking down making them quite reliable. The pneumatic tools can be used for years, before there being a need to make any repairs to the system.
There are other factors that one may look into in the operation of a tool such as control and maneuverability. In some cases there might be challenges in working with the tools due to distances from power and angles, but the pneumatic tools are not hindered by these factors. The tools can work as long as the air id delivered at any angles, round corners, upside down and more. In some cases the use of the tools may require a counter balance especially if one is dealing with high power density machines.
