Running out of air

I have a 26 gallon air compressor, if I use a cut off tool or a grinder it runs out of air really quick is there something I need to do different. Or is compressor to small?

Water?
by: Carl

How often do you drain the water (condensate) from your air tank? Make sure it isn't full of water, otherwise you no longer have a 26 gallon, you have a 13 gallon.
