Default Rotary tool with dust collection

I unfortunalty already bought a Dewalt kit that includes both the drywall drill and the rotary tool . I want to cut out outlets in drywall , so I thought a rotary tool would be the way to go .

But I wish I would have though of dust collection when I was buying the rotary tool , as drywall dust has to be one of the worst things you can deal with in a house . Can't take the other one back as I bought it last summer .

I just googled it and found out that Rotozip does have dust collection . Does anyone have a preference for rotary tools for cutting out outlets in drywall and does it have a dust collection option?
I may have to buy a Rotozip and do this twice ,
or hold my hose up to the wall as I use my Dewalt and catch what dust I can . I can't seem to find any other rotary tools with dust collection

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I have one of the original rotozips. I bought the dust collection attachment for it and also the jigsaw handle. The dust collection works well. If you're nearby you can use it.....I'm in MA where are you? As you know, the rotozip has specific uses and sometimes it is the only tool that will do the job.

should have gotten a multimaster and moved to the head of the class....
their dust extraction assembly really works...

Bill that's pretty funny lol, but I'm tired of measuring outlets and missing my mark so I wanted to try cutting outlets out with a rotary tool . I know most drywallers use them

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .

Rick,, you're still going to have to measure......

cutting the opening is the easy park. I'm a one here, one there kinda deal. Occasionally I'll do a room full. I've used a rotary
and found em to be pretty slick, just not my cup of tea....

Rick...I'm with Bill on this...if you're only doing boxes the saw is phenomenal...not a lot of dust flying around.

Rotaries have their use as do the Multimaster types...Multimaster can't cut circles but rotaries can't do any of the cuts one would buy a Multimaster for.

Don't know about rotaries but Feins have a real good dust attachment...

If you already have a rotary I would suggest buying a Fein next...you won't look back...yes, it's a little pricey but worth it...
