Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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
