The metal reinforced shaft lock, metal bearing plate, and aluminum front housing withstand heavy use. View larger.
Lightweight, 7.5-inch-long body is ideal for overhead jobs or tight spaces.
Weighing in at only 2.8 pounds and measuring 7.5 inches in length, the DR1 drywall-specific router is easy to hold and packs a significant punch. Custom created for drywallers by drywallers, the DR1 is 20 percent shorter and features a smaller grip diameter than its competitors, providing enhanced cutting capabilities and control while minimizing user fatigue.
Even with its small size, the DR1 doesn't skimp on power. In fact, at 33,000 RPM versus the competition's 30,000, the DR1 is the fastest spinning drywall tool on the market. And, its six amps of power deliver up to 45 percent higher speeds under load than other models, providing more power to cut around large areas such as windows and doors. And thanks to overload protection, you can be sure the DR1 will operate smoothly every time you use it.
Chock-Full of User-Friendly Features
The DR1 is packed with user-friendly features to help you complete your cut-out work efficiently. To start, a handy on-tool wrench storage compartment simplifies bit changes, and replaceable motor brushes and available service parts reduce downtime. For further convenience, the DR1 has a smart venting system that keeps dust away from you for a healthier, safer working environment.
Additionally, the DR1 features revamped XBITS that are capable of cutting more than 2,000 feet of drywall, a redesigned depth guide that allows for maximum visibility, and a durable, hardened steel lock pin encased in solid aluminum to prevent the shaft lock from breaking.
The DR1-1100 Kit comes with one 1/8-inch collet and nut, one 5/32-inch collet and nut, and 1/4-inch collet and nut. The drywall router can also be used with Zip Bits.
Durable Construction Withstands Tough Jobs
The DR1 Drywall Router is built to last. For starters, a metal reinforced shaft lock, metal bearing plate, and hand polished, die-cast aluminum front housing ensure optimum durability for longer life.
Also, a low-profile hardened steel depth guide and fiberglass stainless steel reinforced body combine with a contractor-grade high-strand rubber cord to stand up to rough-and-tough conditions. A heavy-duty on/off switch is dust sealed to protect the tool from damaging particles.
RotoZip was founded in 1972 when a professional drywall contractor sought a better, faster way to cut drywall. Focused on saving time and money while improving his results, this single vision soon spawned a complete line of high performance professional tools, accessories and attachments for cutting a wide variety of building materials. Today, RotoZip continues to build upon the same strong foundation established over two decades ago as the world's number one Spiral Saw system.

The thing makes a huge mess as well. The inevitable drywall dust blows EVERYWHERE because there's a fan inside the saw that blows dust away from the bearings. The sliding bracket that controls cut depth leaves black marks all over the surface you're cutting. They came off easily enough, but really?
The thing that drove me crazy was the fact that the attachments that RototZip makes DO NOT work on this saw. I bought a circle cut guide that said it worked on every RotoZip spiral saw (read the fine print, dummy!). But not this one.
I see that Dremel is coming out with a multi-role device for $99. So far it looks like the best deal. But if you're just looking to make quick, not-so-straight cuts then this will work for you.
If you're looking for precise cuts in drywall, use a hand saw. You should think of this as the chainsaw of hand held devices. It is best used by plunging the tip through the drywall and cutting inside the box as a previous review opined. However, I've used it enough now that I have been able to master the ability of cutting on the outside of the box. Hint: plunge a hole inside the box to find the edge first, then cut on the outside. Another hint: Move the saw quickly and most of all: WATCH THE WIRES IN THE WALL by setting the depth gauge correctly. And if you have the opportunity to buy extra collets, do so. I've been through at least 6 since buying it. Admittedly, I used it a lot when renovating my home.
RotoZip makes a muli-tool that will cut tile, wood, etc... and I've used it. Better make sure the bit is fully in the collet and is straight otherwise the bit wobbles, which makes the thing dangerously unstable. It has many of the characteristics of the DR1. I frankly think the Dremel looks like a better tool and is generally comes with more accessories that RotoZip charges extra for.
To me, this is a don't buy. Buy a tool that does much more than just drywall. These aren't cheap. Oh... and I agree with the noise being so loud it scares the kids...four houses down. Wear eye and ear protection with this tool. You might want to think about Kevlar just in case one of the bits snap.
I am a contractor who works in hospitals. I've built about 3 dozen fire and smoke walls since owning this rotozip. This rotozip is still going strong after cutting several miles of 5/8" drywall. One 4'x12' sheet above the ceiling can and does have over 100 lineal feet of rotozip cutting to cut out for pipes, ducts, lines, med gas, sprinkler lines, data cables, bar joists and the pan deck.
Very smooth as if it has better bearings than the other models.
I also like the soft start.
Very good tool that seems like it's going to last quite a while for me. Much longer than those cheaper homeowner zips I'm so tired of burning out and/or the bearings blowing out.
