I plan on cutting the 48 wide Hardie 5/16 cement board. Should I expect a challenge?

You can mount your boards and cut them in place using edges for your guide to get perfect cuts very quickly. An oscillating tool (Makita, Dremel, etc.) with a square blade is a perfect compliment for cutting the corners square or cutting a triangle hole in the corners of a cutout to start a cut. Cuts are very clean if you don't push the blade too fast through the cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than expected. I`m doing a bath remodel, including new tile on floor and walls. I`m using Hardie Backer for the first time. The so called scoring method that they say to use just didn`t work well so I got out my saws. Had dust everywhere and ruined three blades. I didn`t like spending $ 240.00 on a tool that I won`t use that much but I`m glad I did. I was hoping that it would make simple straight cut but the truth is the shears will make about any cut you want and do it with ease without any dust.
