The Wide Range of Mobile Air Compressors
Pneumatic (air driven) energy has long been recognized as one of the most efficient means of operating machinery as it produces a lot of power and torque with very little waste. Further, air compressors tend to be more efficient than other types of machine power, like direct electricity or hydraulic power.
Pneumatic machinery has long been the standard in heavy industry (factories, plants), extraction work (oil, mining), and heavy transport (trains, ships). However for much of the history of pneumatic technology mobility was a major limiting factor.
Most mobile air compressors in Sydney large enough to serve their functions were simply too large to tote around except aboard giant ships or trains.

All of this has, of course, changed today. Now one can find a wide range of mobile air compressors meant for many different purposes: from operating heavy logging machinery in the wilderness to tiny hand-held units meant to inflate your bicycle tire.
Improved technology and improved materials has led to the development of many types of mobile air compressors that are now being used in many new applications. The same benefits that heavy industry has always seen in pneumatic energy are just as alluring to many other industries that require these compressors.
The majority of money made through the selling of mobile air compressors remains in the industrial sector. These are particular used by loggers, miners, and constructions workers. Construction in particular has become a dramatic growth market over the last couple of decades and many of the most successful manufacturers have designed their own line specifically for construction applications.
