Full Answer

Smaller compressors are typically used for basic home operations, while professional operations such as contractors or mechanics will often have much larger and more powerful air compressors for bigger jobs. The tank size is typically between 1 gallon and 15 gallons, though commercial grade pneumatic compressors can be even larger. Numerous specialized tools can be attached to the air hose and powered by the release of air. Impact wrenches, pneumatic hammers and brad nailers are just a few of the items that can work in conjunction with an air compressor to accomplish certain tasks.
