will this cut 1/2 inch hardiebacker

Asked by lou December 1, 2018

Answers

Yes. I bought one because we re-sided the whole house with Hardy planks. Hardly any dust is created because it cuts about an 1/8" swath so waste is curled pieces not sawdust. Great tool for this use.

Again, the questions is, will it cut 1/2" hardibacker?

Does this fiber cement shear cut a clean edge on both side of the cut?

Asked by AlaskaMountains March 27, 2017
3
Answers

The cut is not as clean as you will get from a circular saw. However, there is NO dust when you use the shears. How clean the cut is depends on your skill level. It takes some practice to get proficient at using them. When you are, the edge is about the same on both sides of the cut.

Does this tool have replacement blades for it?

great tool
only thing I might change is making it fit in the case with the cutting head turned around backwards so the handle is facing up when you cut.
