Rental Tools: The Benefits of Using Air-Powered Tools for Construction Jobs

Home construction jobs generally require the use of one or more tools in order to be effectively carried out. These days, most traditional manual tools have been replaced with air-powered and electric tools. Continue reading to learn about the advantages that air-powered tools have over electric tools in turning most home construction project ideas into reality.  

Ease of Use Typically powered on and off with a single switch, air staplers, nailers, and chipping hammers are effortlessly simple to operate. While safety precautions should always be taken, little prior knowledge is necessary in order to make most air-powered tools serve their function.

Degree of Pressure With the help of a portable or trailer mounted air compressor, air-powered tools can deliver an unparalleled amount of pressure. In addition to giving you access to a high degree of pressure, air compressors give you the flexibility to choose the degree of pressure you desire, even if it is low.

Efficiency A combination of usability and pressure capability makes it possible for homeowners to complete tasks with an air-powered tool in far less time than it takes to complete the same task with a manual or electric tool. Whether you are driving nails into wood or stapling trim on a window, using an air-powered tool and an air compressor will help you save time.

Versatility With the right pipes, hoses, and fittings, a single air compressor can be used to power a wide range of tools. The versatility of this power source provides homeowners who choose air-powered tools with another advantage over those who choose other tools. Various accessories can be fitted to many air-powered tools, making them even more suitable for many home construction projects.

Are you a San Francisco resident or contractor who is looking to rent tools and equipment that will make your next construction project a breeze? A-1 Equipment Rental Center boasts a complete line of high-performance air-powered tools that can be used to carry out just about any project imaginable. To speak with a professional from our business about our inventory of tools and rental equipment, call (650) 369-2992 today.

Continue on to learn more about the types of tractors available for rent at A-1 Equipment Rental Center.
