Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimIII Unbelievable results and quality... You get what you pay for!
This is no cheap tool, but it yields amazing results. I used it to cut a 5 3/8" hole in my garage wall for venting a portable NewAir air conditioner hose through a galvanized flapper/dryer vent. This tool went through the stucco, metal mesh, wood and drywall all with a perfectly clean cut. It took steady pressure, and a bit of patience to get through, but the results are perfect. Don't forget to pick up a Milwaukee Arbor bit if you don't already have one. It's not included.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocky Hard to kill hole saw
I had used other hole saws against stucco and the results were not pretty. This carbide rimmed hole saw took a long time to grind through a couple 5" stucco holes (the stuff's like cement!) but it still looked/felt like it was ready for many more. Suggestion: forget that old 1/2" drill you have been using and rent a 3/4" drill from Home Depot ($7) for a 4-hour period. It saves your equipment that would burn-out against the stucco anyway. Also - remember the ear-plugs and eye-protection!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by h1944 It worked perfectly
I had to drill for 12 lights, through sheetrock and then 5/4" floorboards that were directly above (it is an old house that has undergone a lot of remodeling), and it never dulled. The fit was perfect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Plumber Works well in drywall
It is one of the only cutters available for five inch cans I have one just like it I use for 6" cans they work well in drywall and a little in lath and plaster but not in wood. I havent been able to find a really good one in 5". This one works well in drywall if thats all you have to do.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mcplu too small
5-3/8" is too small for industry standard 5" housings.
It needs to be between 5-1/2 and 5-3/4
we needet to enlarge every hole to make fixtures fit.
