    Q:Can this tool be used to cut metal roofing with the right bit?
    by|Aug 3, 2022
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  I am not aware of a bit for the Dewalt Drywall tool that would cut metal roofing. I've only used a grinder with a metal cutoff disk or there are metal cutting blades for circular saws.

    by|Jan 27, 2023

      A:  No, you would use the tool for cutting drywall, acoustical ceiling tiles, and plywood

                  I needed a tool like this for cutting a plastic mower chute opening and the big battery made this a great deal because I could swap the battery to my other DeWalt tools.

                  DeWalt Quality
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When it came time to renovate my basement, I knew I would need to update my old DeWalt 18v tools. My wife gave me clearance to buy every tool I would need. I’ve always been a fan of DeWalt, so it was an easy choice. I loaded up on DeWalt 20v tools. This tool makes cutting out drywall for can lights, outlets and switches as easy as can be. Be sure to wear eye protection because it will get dusty. If you are reading this, just buy it. You will not regret it.

                    Lightweight and cordfree
                    Screwgun works great for driving screws straight, fast, without overdriving. But not at angles. Also, forward and reverse switch is directly opposite of my Dewalt drills
