    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No cords for drywall stilts When using drywall stilts on a jobsite, I hated having cords from cut out tools and strip fed drywall screw guns. This had the same power as the corded and along with the cordless screwgun and strip magazine attachment, I enable to maintain capacity and capability while keeping a cord free floor. The quick change feature was an issue until we changed our method to hold the twist lock stationary and turn the tool instead (works with old fat fingers but strong full hand grip). The guard is the same as ever other style, so no wow factor for comparison. This tool NEEDS to be sold with a hook since cordless is meant to be with you for convenience, especially for stilt walkers, lost a star for that having to be separate purchase even when sold as kit. Had it for 4 years with no issues, cleaning it off daily before going back in the work bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good on drywall, not on wood! This tool works awesome on drywall. But some of the reviews I saw said it would work on plywood and composite decking. It is very hard to control when cutting anything but drywall

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well with wall applications but not for ceiling. I... Works well with wall applications but not for ceiling. I bought it for both and found out very quickly that using for recessed lighting cuts is very messy with drywall dust blowing in your face. If you stand further away you can't see the cut line and the tool gets squirrelly.
