Product Description

Amazon.com

In recent years, rotary cutout tools have soared in popularity, due mainly to a series of television infomercials promoting one brand. Though it doesn't receive the TV airplay of its main competitor, this DeWalt model uses a durable 5 amp motor--the most powerful motor yet in a cutout tool--making it a great tool for professional drywallers, electricians, and carpenters. To help battle dust infiltration, the tool features a sealed motor and switch, a must for any serious drywall tool. It also sports a quick-and-easy, tool-free bit-changing system and comes with both 1/8 and 1/4 inch collets. We really like the bump-off switch for quick tool shutdown and the simple and effective tool-free depth adjustments. Like other rotary cutout tools, this one uses spiral cutting bits, which work equally well plunging into a cut as they do laterally. In our test we found the DeWalt to be smooth running with low vibration. We had no problem plunging and cutting through 1-1/2 inches of solid birch, whizzing through drywall, and tearing through tile. In fact, this tool has more power than you'd expect from something of its size, and if you aren't paying attention, it can get away from you--an easier to live with problem than lack of power. Some extraordinary claims have been made about rotary cutout tools, and while DeWalt's cutout tool is as versatile as any we've tried, and a bit more powerful than most, it's most effective at what it was designed for--quick cutouts in drywall, tile, and plywood. --Brian Trinen

I hang drywall for a living and have accustomed myself to using the Rotozip for cutting out outlets, vents, etc. and got used to its lack of power and durability; until last week. I purchased the new DeWalt Cut-out tool and can't believe the difference in power and comfort. DeWalt really did their homework on this one. It also has a tool-free bit change which is awesome. It makes changing bits quicker and easier and I never have to have a wrench around. Drop whatever you're using and get the DeWalt.

The rotozip revolution is a lot of hype and not well constructed. I returned it for the DW660. This is a powerful and smooth tool in comparison. I think this is one of the better DeWalt products that I own. Hold on because it can take off due to the power(not a complaint). I wish the base was a little better constructed for use in cutting wood and plastic. There is no circle guide either, otherwise I would give it 5 stars.

I make a living with DeWalt power tools so I had high hopes for this thing. As several reviews have stated, power and speed is not the issue - in fact, the RPM is so high it is in danger of igniting any combustible material you might be cutting. I noticed smoke roiling out of a piece of MDF and I think the bit may have started a fire had I not let up. Included bit is garbage, replace it/ throw it away and don't waste your productive time while working. Also you are better off using a wrench to tighten the bits rather than this Rube Goldberg-esk "tool free" bit changing system - also garbage. Mine was broken within the first twenty minutes of using the tool out of the box:

Both buttons have to be depressed simultaneously and then rotate the plastic collar to tighten the chuck. I did not notice that the button on the plastic collar (closest to the chuck) did not spring back up the third time I tried to use it so it was still engaged on the shaft. When I plugged it in and turned it on it made a HORRIBLE sound as the shaft nut ground its way into the plastic collar and spring loaded built-in metal spanner wrench. The collar shifted and froze and will no longer move, however the tool is still functional. Bits have to be changed with a wrench only and the plastic collar is just a decoration now. I am NOW ACTUALLY READING THE REVIEWS much more carefully - as I purchased this on the nearly five-star statistic rating. Contemplating returning for another one, but not sure at this point.

Excellent impressive tool -- but I expected this from DeWalt and I wasn't disappointed. Years ago I had purchased a rotozip brand tool and it burned out on first use. I had to finish what I was doing with a regular single speed Dremel Tool. So I was turned off by rotary tools. However I had a lot of cutout work to do -- carpenters lace type trim work for the porch and gable trim. I hate a scroll saw because of the pain of having to unhook and rehook the blade every time you start to cut in a new area; and I did not want to pay the expense of a band saw; I just would not use it often enough to justify and my jig saw just wasn't maneuverable enough in tight patterns. So I went to Amazon and asked for rotary saws to see what was out there and BAM -- there it was DeWalt! I don't care what anyone else says I LOVE DeWalt tools; they have never let me down. From my 10" table saw; 10" compound Miter saw; drills; sanders; planner; table router; trim router and now rotary saw my DeWalt tools have always served me well.

This rotary saw cut through 3/4" hardwood and 3/4" treated exterior pine plywood -- yes folks, like a hot knife through butter. With the first cut I knew I had hit the jack-pot. There was no strain on the tool, it handled the wood effortlessly, and I had no trouble controlling it as I cut freehanded through the wood. The ring guide kept the blade perpendicular to the wood and the cuts were clean and smooth. I cut a lot of scallops; circles; scrolls; curls and whatnots through several pieces of 7 - 8 foot long boards and with this saw I did it fast. I bought just the saw because I did not know if it would work but I would advise people to also purchase the D-handle attachment you can get for it.

Had this for a couple of years now. I really like this tool for it's power and versatility. So far I've used it to cut drywall, cut out squares and rectangles in thin wood, cut metal with the proper bits or abrasive wheel bits, etc.My gripes, are the no tool lock system of theirs. The cheap plastic piece that says # 2 on it broke off and is not fixable, so basically, I just use a wrench to tighten it down now. Also, this tool gets hot. Especially when I'm using bits with the abrasive cutters on the ends. Maybe that's not it's proper function, but regardless, it get's pretty hot.
Besides that, I really like it's power and versatility.

I purchased this with full intent of putting it in, through, and around almost every material imaginable. It powered through my drywall installations with ease, and accuracy ( my keyhole saw hasn't been very dusty lately). But hold on to it, because it can get away from you. Yet, needless to say I would rather have this "issue" than having it be underpowered.
This tool has great balance, bit changes sans tool(s) is very convenient and one less thing for me to lose on the job. The depth gauge adjustment is easy to get to and simple. The bump off switch is a nice, it didn't seem like an overly important detail at the time of purchase, but the time you fire it up, do your business, and shut it down, its a very handy.
The reason for only 4 stars instead of 5 is that I have yet to put any cement backers, or tile under it. I really feel that if I run into any problems it will be with the bits and not the machine.
Its made my life, and my work more efficient and better.
