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.

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.

Spent some time researching between this and the comparable RotoZip model. The RotoZip had way too much marketing with it (infomercial type of advertising) which is why I went with this. The multiple attachments for the Rotozip sort of scared me as I've seen these kinds of tools come and go. It may well be just as good or better.

Just received this tool yesterday. Wanted to test on a piece of 3/4" plyboard to assess the power, speed, etc. Used 1/8" RotoZip multipurpose bits. Just a note on these, the Dewalt ONLY takes 1/8" OR 1/4" bits. Be careful when buying bits as the Rotozip line of bits also comes in a 5/32" bit, which will NOT fit in this drill.

Not sure if I understood the directions on how to insert or remove a bit using the lock and unlock buttons. I found it easier just to get an open ended socket wrench to do these functions. Will go back and read to see if I missed something.

Tested a cutout for a low voltage install. Overall, very pleased with the power, and speed at which I was able to make the cutout. Did two cutouts and each took no more than a minute, which was very nice considering the thickness of the board. Would imagine that it would go even faster on thinner material.

Did notice that the dust did go all over the place, as noted in other reviews for this product. HOWEVER, given the power that this has and the speed in which it cuts, I'll gladly spend the extra 2 minutes with a shop vac instead of getting a shoulder workout with a handsaw.

Overall, very pleased with first impression and test.

Pros: Solid durable unit, plenty of power, cuts wood very well, good price for power and durability.

Cons: hard to control, vents blow dust directly in face when cutting drywall, not ergonomic.

Using primarily for a 800 sq foot basement drywall home project with lots of cut out work. If using for the first time you better practice, I find it hard to control. It is not very ergonomic, I think that has to do with it as much as the power. It easily runs away from you. As a couple of other reviewers have noted the vents are in a terrible position and literally blow dust directly in your face, extremely annoying. This thing creates an amazing amount of dust when cutting drywall, makes me appreciate my old fasion drywall saw. can't compare to any others so I don't know if they all do that.
I do like the bit change system, it's pretty easy and holds the bit very well. I don't like using a wrench, it's just another thing I can lose.
to do it again I would try another one. I can see why many professionals use this unit because it is very solid. For me the negatives outweigh the positives.
