First try cranking up the tank pressure to the upper end of the tools recommended operating pressure.. Look at the labels on the tool and you will see the operating pressure range, usually 90-120 psi. Second, what diameter and length hose are you using. Less expensive pneumatics are not as efficient and often do not tolerate small (1/4") diameter and/or lengths over 50' for hose.
