Once again I was surprised how much torque is generated by a Nitrogen powered air tool. I started out using my air tools on the road utilizing a compressed nitrogen tank. It removes/installs the clutch nuts without any problems. Since I moved I no longer have a air compressor for my garage. I use a 10 CF tank on the road. It is good for a couple of uses before it needs replaced. Thinking about putting a larger tank in the garage, but not sure if it is needed.

distance to re-fill ?? convince alone to me would the deciding factor . running out in the beginning or middle of a project would frustrate me a bit.

BUTTTT ... I have invested in Milwaukee 18 V battery impacts [1/4" , 3/8" and 1/2" ] and hammer drills also a reciprocating saw, extra batteries and all is well for portable tools with no air line to drag around. heck they even make a 12 amp hour battery for these now , mine are 5 amp hr.

Welding supply shop close by. For my needs it is ideal, commercial application would suck! Just makes more sense than installing a air compressor, plus my impacts are all air powered. Really works great for traveling!
