Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cement shears a most have. The Dewalt variable speed cement shears are a must have. We live on the Gulf Coast in a beach house on piling. We recently remodeled the grade level room after Hurricane Ike. Instead of drywall we replaced everything with cement board 1/4" and 1/2". The shears made the process painless. One of the many benefits is the fact that they create absolutely no dust when cutting he cement board. So they're is no dust all over the room and your not breathing in any of the harmful cement debris flying in the air. Installing the cement board and cement siding is a snap. Instead of measuring you can lay out full sheets of cement board and cut to fit. The shear head acts as a guide when cutting. You do not need any experience in carpentry do use this tool. I recommend this tool for any any every contractor or do it yourselfer that will install tile or siding in the near future. Amazing tool to have. January 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dewalt shear Shear works great less dust than other methods easy to use March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Durable, safe, and easy to use I have rented this tool on many occasions and now am going to purchase one. It is very easy to use, very safe, durable as I have dropped it several times and nothing happens to it. Great for straight cuts, curved cuts and more. Does not kick up dust like a saw. Highly recommend for do-it-yourself and professionals. August 31, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robust dependable tool The cement shears have performed well throughout the project. The plastic housing shows little sign of wear. It appears to be a quality tool. I'm wondering if they will cut metal or will they require a different set of blades. September 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by price is right good price for a fiber cement shear but it has more vibration than the others i have used July 10, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lots less dust. It is definitely the fastest and easiest way to work with concrete fiberboard siding. October 23, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cement Shear If you have a large amount of siding to install this shear is the perfect tool. No dust, fast cuts and easy clean up. November 19, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Corners break at end of cut. Did not perform as expected. I purchased this tool so that I can quickly cut cement boards. I based that purchase on the existing customer reviews. Too bad every cut I made ended with the corner of the board breaking at a 45° angle at the end of cut. I purchased it to cut 7-1/4" wide cement boards.I practiced on three boards, ended up throwing those away. I returned the product. Did not perform as expected. June 20, 2012
