Pneumatic tools, powered by bursts of compressed air being released from an air compressor, are often the choice of professionals who frequently undertake heavy-duty tasks, but can also be effective for many applications around the house for a DIYer.
Generally, pneumatic tools are more powerful than their cordless and electric counterparts, although you’ll likely have to sacrifice some portability to get that extra power. While some air compressors are portable, you’ll always need to have the tool tethered via an air hose to the compressor, so you won’t be able to freely roam as you could with a cordless tool, for instance.
