Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not I bought this a week ago. Changing the bits is very difficult with the lock button and having to take the depth guide off every time. Both bits that came with broke after barely any use. I will most likely be returning it and looking for a better corded one. I have mostly all DeWalt cordless tools and hand tools and have been very happy with all but this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Desalt 20v max drywall cut-out tool It’s garbage. The collet that holds the drywall cut-out bits doesn’t hold. Further, Home Depot does not carry the appropriate size bits( at least in my area). It’s a $150 paperweight

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good On my machine the depth gauge will not stay locked so the bit goes deep into electrical boxes at times... damaged a couple of wires
