Customer reviewsWell designed and made.
My Rotozip died after a lot of years of service and while looking for a replacement, I found this. I was on the fence buying this as the Rotozip worked so well for me and it s not a cheap tool. Now that I have used it for the last few months, it was a good buy. This tool is great. All the power I had with the Rotozip in a cordless. I use it for Sheetrock, ceiling tile, and paneling mostly. All of the Rotozip bits fit perfect and the tool doesn t need tools to change the bits. The switch is a little tricky at first as mine was very stiff.I actually thought there was some safety at first as I was pushing so hard and it didn t budge. After the first day, the issue of tightness was gone and it s been just right since. The battery it comes with is the smaller version of what Dewalt offers, but it will accept the bigger one from the drills and impacts if you have those. The small battery get s me through about half the day when hanging Sheetrock all day and cutting outlets and can lights. The odd part about the battery is when it s dying, it s seems to be going near full speed then all of a sudden stop. Not really any warning that it s low like some of the older tools. The big battery goes all day. I still haven t run that out so I don t know if it does the same thing. The tool is also pretty light which is nice when working overhead all day. It s not too loud either. I really like it and wouldn t change much other than it needs a clip to hang from my tool belt. Even an accessory clip would be nice. Now I just take a long HVAC zip tie and tie it loose around the tool and hang it from a hook on my belt. Not perfect, but works. Haven t dropped it yet.
