Cut Off Wheel In Dewalt Track Saw?

Anyone ever put a cut off wheel in a dewalt track saw?

I am trying to cut some vinyl fencing and chipped the ends a bit with a dewalt fine blade. I was thinking about swapping the blade for a cutoff wheel but wondering if anyone has ever tried it before.

Vinyl? Try reversing your blade.
