Answer: 
I would not recommend it. Stucco is very hard and porous, it's a mixture of mortar and concrete. You should always use a carbide blade when cutting through Stucco! If you only have a couple holes to cut, I'd recommend buying a inexpensive blade and throw it away when you're done.

Answer: 
Milwaukee® recessed light hole saws are manufactured using carbide grit for cutting through drywall, plaster, acoustical tile, wood and stucco with mesh. Made with a continual rim, these saws wont' tear material and will leave a clean finish.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Time Saver This makes cutting out recessed lighting a breeze. The holes are extremely tight to the fixture and allow no light bleed. I have used this for about 3 dozen fixtures so far and have no real complaints. Much easier then a rotozip/cut out or punch saw, plus the holes are very clean. Please be aware that you will need an arbor, preferably one that has pins to hold the saw in place. June 10, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Non Standard Why on earth would Milwaukee make a hole saw with a non standard hole for the arbor? It's going back for me and I'll stick with the boys who can follow the standards. December 28, 2012
