Answer: 
The Makita 6.5-Amp Fiber Cement Shear Kit (JS8000) has a cutting capacity of 5/16 in. Therefore, this tool will not be able to cut 1/2 in. Hardi Backer. To cut thicker material, we recommend the Makita 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw, w/ Dust Collector (5057KB).

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect cutting tool This is the tool to have and use when cutting and installing Cement fiber boards such Hardi Backer or cement siding. You can use it indoors with minimal mess. It leaves 1/4 ribbon cutting debris for easy cleanup. It is accurate and easy to use January 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent cement board sheer I have cut a lot of cement board using a miter saw, but have always had a problem with the dust, which you have to be careful not to breath. The Makita cement board sheer has completely eliminated this problem for me. This is one of the best tools I know own. March 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This thing cuts like butter! I have used the shears to cut the cement board panels and lap siding. A friend of mine used it once without me being there and it had jagged edges. You have to let the tool do the work. He was pushing it too hard along the piece of material. When I used it, it left beautiful clean edges. I am very happy with this purchase. October 2, 2012
