The Makita® fiber cement shear has a powerful motor with variable-speed and precision machined blades to cut straight and contour lines quickly and quietly with less dust. The JS8000 is engineered for cutting fiber cement products and select exterior siding products. The JS8000 features a 6.5 A motor that delivers 2500 spm for faster cutting. It has a 1-piece cutting head machined from precisely milled aircraft grade aluminum to a tolerance of 0.001 in to ensure blades are consistently cutting at the optimum angle. The solid steel center and side shear blades cut straight and contour lines faster and quieter, with up to 5/16 in cutting capacity. The 1/2 in protected spindle withstands heavy torque loads from the powerful Makita® built 6.5 A motor, while the lightweight cast aluminum gear housing and durable body casing make this tool jobsite tough. The JS8000 weighs just 4.8 lb with an ergonomic, well balanced rubberized pistol grip for better control and comfort. Other features include a variable-speed trigger for controlled cutting speed and a lock-on button for continuous use. The JS8000 also has a retractable clip to hang on a tool belt. The JS8000 is a powerful yet compact fiber cement shear engineered for a range of applications including drop-ins for sinks, flooring and showers, as well as exterior tasks like cut to length siding, gable angles and window openings.
