Overall Rating for Kett KD-1495 Fiber Cement Shear *Cuts up to 5/8"
(based on 6 reviews)
By Bill H from Central NJ on June 6, 2012
This is by far the best way to cut 1/2" cement board. Takes about 3 cuts to get a good feel for how it operates than it's a sure winner. My workers today said it's the best tool I have bought in years. The job we did with the backer-board took 2 hours, completely cut and installed. The same job we would have spent all day without this cutter. True time and labor saver. Now I don't know why I ever tried to cut the boards with a knife of jig saw.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

I have been cutting cement board for 15 years. I purchased this tool a year ago and I wish I have had it for 15 years. This is hands down the best device for cutting cement board.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

I have worked with lesser versions of this type of tool, and they just couldn't hold out. Finally after some research I helped another contractor get a pair, and it was the workhorse of cement shears! So now I have my own pair! Just think about it, if it saves time, it saves money! Totally worth the purchase, I promise, and made the process easy.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
