Power tools utilise a power source mechanism, which is different from the ones used for manually operated tools. Power tools are used for construction and gardening, household tasks, for drilling, cutting, shaping, sanding, grinding, routing, polishing, painting and heating. Power tools are categorised on the basis of power source into electric power operated tools (circular saws and drill machines), pneumatic power tools (jack hammers, chippers and compressed air guns), liquid fuel (gas), powered tools (saws), hydraulic power tools (jacks) and powder-actuated tools (nail guns).
