18-Volt Cordless Cut-Out Tool (Tool Only) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for first few months! Powerful cut out tool for drywall,bit heavy but not heavy duty! Batteries don't last long! Used almost daily for Drywall. Have gone through 2 of these in less than 2 years and feel Dewalts quality has slipped in power tools last few years! First tool caught on fire, second just stopped dead,tried fresh and brand new battery,still nothing. Just bought the Ryobi cut out tool tonite! Figure if I'm going to throw these out in 10 months ,better to waste $40 than $100 each time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tool Far superior to the Ryobi I had, but finding compatible Li-ion batteries has been a chore. Tool works well, but front guide wobbled about some (I shimmed it and its fine now), and "tool-less" bit change collar makes watching the cut line a bit difficult - but it is far-and-away the best battery-driven rotary saw I have see, and works about as well as my corded Zip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy With Purchase I bought this one because I currently have 18V DeWalt tools and I wanted cordless operation. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the stop is just a clip-on so it wiggles a bit on the frame. This poses no issues when I'm using it and pressing it against the drywall. I have cut out new construction recess lights and electric utility boxes with great success. The RotoZip bits fit just fine and it comes with a larger chuck as well as 2 bits. Some may like the no tool chuck, some may not for it does take some dexterity to press down the chuck locking button on the frame and pressing down the chuck collar button and rotating the collar to lock/unlock the bit. The only con is that battery life is a bit low, but I don't mind for the power is good and I have lots of batteries. I'm giving it 5 stars across the board for ease of use, portability, and performance.
