An angle grinder has a ton of power, would work better, but the air tool should work, I see them on some of the 4x4 shows, they seem to have lots of power, but I can't tell the brand...

Weco, those air tools need great gobs of high pressure air. Your small portable compressor for nail guns and such doesn't have the capacity to drive those tools at speed for longer than a few seconds. A garage or shop is going to have a large compressor with a huge reservoir. The larger the reservoir, the better with motorized air tools.
