The DeWalt 551 cuts effortlessly through not just drywall, its biggest customer, but a long list of other surfaces you might be clumsily using a jigsaw on: ceiling tiles, paneling, solid-surface and laminate countertops, plastic, cement backerboard and even light-gauge metal. Its light and handles beautifully. It is superbly balanced and is a lot easier to maneuver than a jigsaw or a hand-powered drywall saw. It plunges smoothly and doesnt fight you as your blade travels. At 26,000 rpm, its got surprising power for a cordless. Two collet sizes give you a whole range of flexibility, and the tool-free bit change is a breeze and takes only a couple of seconds. Just take off the depth guide, hold down the spindle lock and collet lock and turn the collet grip, and in goes your bit. Its a contractor must-have.
