Pneumatic air drills employ compressed air to exert pressure on the piston, which moves with the pressure and makes repeated blows to the drill bit. The drill bit is then used to cut or tear through heavy-duty materials, like rock and concrete. Pneumatic air drills offer additional torque, making this tool ideal for excavating or drilling in tough materials.
