Bee, Good point about higher pressure and tool power, I know that most air tools are supposed to run at about 90 PSI but on heavy equipment like large bulldozers a lot of mechanics run 175-200 PSI(I never recommend more than 175) to get more torque from their tools. It's hard on tools but something like a Caterpillar D11 dozer needs all the grunt you can get! That pressure I am talking about often runs at 150-160 PSI at the tool!, That too is not recommended!
