  1. pneumatic drill

    A pneumatic drill, also known as an air drill or a jackhammer, is a heavy-duty power tool that uses compressed air to generate a rapid hammering action, typically used to break up hard materials like concrete, asphalt, or rock. The compressed air is supplied by a separate air compressor connected to the tool via a hose. The tool's reciprocating piston converts the air pressure into forceful thrusts that drives a drill bit or chisel into the material being worked on.
