I need to cut "hardi-back" that is 1/4" thick for floor overlay and I also need to cut "hardi-back" siding. The siding is maybe 5/16" thick.
The "hardi-back" is standard item from Home Depot with silica-cement structure.
To cut with blade creates a lot of dust and there is warning to not breathe the dust.

So is there a Makita tool you would recommend?

It doesn't have to be cordless as power is available.

BEST ANSWER: I would recommend the Makita model JS8000 Fiber cement Shear Kit for that job.

Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

Each NEW Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained

In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product.
