Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by andio99 A great tool that requires patience and a learning curve
Sometimes it is better to spend the money on the specific tool you need. I bought this thinking that it's multi-use functionality would defray the cost over several projects. And it will, eventually! Just not wood projects.
This tool is limited and if you already have a Dremel maybe you should get another cutting tool. If not, buy this

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cissy disappointed in this
I was disappointed with this item. It looked like a saw that would be easy for a female to handle and use for small jobs. The directions were so confusing and the illustrations not at all clear that I spent several days trying to figure out how to assemble it properly. I finally took it to the store and had an associate try to assemble it correctly and he could not figure it out either. I ended up taking it back and buying the Dremel one like it. No trouble at all with the Dremel, instructions were clear and the tool is very easy for me to use. This one had better reviews than the Dremel but for me, the Dremel is much easier to assemble and use.

I've been using the RotoZip tool for years on anything from drywall to tile. I can go on and on about the various things you can accomplish with this one tool and it has the power to get the job done too!

I couldn't decide between a Roto zip and a Dremel, but other reviews made me decide to go with the,Roto zip since it's heavier duty. I was trying to cut a section out of a bathroom vanity shelf, and it worked like a charm. This will be handy to have around!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flyddon A very good investment
I purchased this Rotosaw for a bathroom remodel. It has performed excellent. I cut trim, sheetrock, tile, cement backer board, it did everything I wanted it to do. Spril cut holes for water pipes, it cut through the Marble threshold with ease. I would buy another one without a second thought. Switching from saw to Spiral is no problem.
Now for the not so great things...
It's a little bigger and heavier than I thought. Not bad just be aware.
It's got Power, it will pull away from you, so I would say , this is not for the weak or small.
The flat cut saw blade does throw out debris a bit, even with the vacuum attachment. And while I am on that, ALWAY use vacuum attachment when saw cutting Sheet rock, if not you go into a whiteout storm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YoTee This is a great tool, wish I'd bought one sooner.
Great little tool with multiple uses. I especially like the flush cut saw. Easy set up, easy use, does the job.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by weld387 Powerful Saw in your hand
The are many things I like about this large Roto Zip saw. Also just a few things that did not sit well with me. It has the size and power to make cuts with out slowing down on certain material EX Drywall, Thin Plywood. Using the added attachment I was able to cut thru 3/8 bolts very easily. The side cutting attachment also made short work with PVC pipe. This is a perfect tool for a Do it yourself home owner. The plastic guard did not sit well with me. The intense vibrations created by the tool made this part loose at times when it needed to STAY tight. The Arbor set up can confuse you if your not used to this also. In summary it has the POWER. Just lacks in intense use with being able to hold itself to initial set up.
