Kett Tool Company designs its KD-1495 Fiber-Cement Shears to provide a faster, cleaner alternative for cutting fiber cement and backer board. The shears cut using a shearing action that curls the waste strip, minimizing airborne dust left behind. Its 500-rpm variable-speed electric motor handles fiber cement board up to 5/8 in. thick, cement siding or backer board at speeds up to 26 in. per minute. The hand-held shears feature a steel head, have a cutting radius of 10 in. and weigh 4.5 lbs.
