The only criticism I can levy is that I wish the cutting head was 90 degrees to the board--as it is on their cordless model. As it is, the power cord has a tendency to get caught in the kerf of the cut. The flatter you hold the tool to the blades, the cleaner the cut; unfortunately, doing this tends to press the power cord against the board and drag the cord into the kerf. Small nit, but fixing this would make an otherwise excellent tool perfect.
This shear cut 1/2" hardibacker like scissors cut paper. It was easy to cut straight lines and subtle curves. Tight curves took some creativity. (like the hole for a toilet) I cut the backerboard for my most current job in the kitchen of the house I was working on. A few minutes with a broom at the end of the day was all the cleanup I had.
I can't speak to its durability because I have only owned it for two months. The shear, however, seems to be well made and is quite hefty. Before I bought it I called the customer service number at PacTool. I spoke with a very nice lady about the warranty. She informed me that once they receive the item they have a two day turn around on all repairs. That in itself was enough to convince me to give it a try.
