I don't think it's that you CAN'T do it with all the
front end attached, for me it was much easier to do it
that way.  With air tools, the front end comes off in
no time.  If I was outside, in inclement weather or
was really pressed in some other way, maybe I would
try it.  For me it's just not worth it.
