Skilsaw SPT67FMD-01 7-1/4'' Sidewinder for Fiber Cement is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 68 and still working from Sidewinder saw Skilsaw brand I've been building for over 40 years and have tried a lot of different tools to cut concrete siding. Not one has satisfied my expertise. I purchased my sidewinder sliksaw and was really impressed with how well it keeps the dust to a minimum plus with good smooth cuts. Great purchase!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hobiemon from Just needs a blade brake! Great saw that would get a five star rating if it had a brake. Well balanced saw with a large base plate and great vacuum pick up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anguszorb from They Got it Right Dust collection works much much better if the suggestion made by the manual is followed i.e. have the depth of cut set a little deeper than the thickness of the material and have the blade cutting continuously into the material the Hardie is lying on. I used old celotex sheathing I tore off the walls of the remodel to back the cut. It was free and it gave very little resistance to the blade, unlike plywood or OSB which I tried at first. I would buy new fiberboard in the future if I had none on the job. It made that much of a difference. Saw and blade track very were and the cuts were cleaner and much more accurate than I expected. While dust collection is not quite as good as on my friend's Makita cement board saw, I could see my work much better with the Skil, and was able to get better cuts. Ripped 8'long 3/4 thick hardie trim pieces on a bevel, using a straightedge guide, and got a very good result. I prefer left hand and worm saws, but the righthand sidewinder format worked just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carpenter 70 from shocking Great saw, Skil makes a great product. This saw because it is attached to a vacuum and no ground, the static electricity caused by the dust traveling thru to the vacuum stays in the saw tell you take your hand off of the saw, then giving the operator a shock from the static electricity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Thew84 from There is no going back I am going to start out by stating I will never go back to using a sawzall or knife. The saw was everything I expected it to be in a fiber cement saw. It was hard getting used to having a hose connected to the saw, (since I have never used a saw with a hose before) however I got used to it. Also I noticed that having a good vacuum is needed to get the dust from going into the air. I ended up using several different types of concrete board and I never had an issue cutting. Angle cuts as well as beveled cuts seems to be just as easy as the straight cuts. There is no question that if you are needed to cut fiber cement to any amount of quantity then you should consider buy this saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rangerboat from One of the best methods for cutting Concrete Board Cutting cement board has always been a dirty job, couple that with the wearing of OSHA approved breathable devices, to prevent the inhalation of health endangering silica dust has created a unique problem. Skil has answered the call by producing the 7 ¼ in. Sidewinder Circular Saw for Fiber Cement packaged together with a Diablo HardieBlade. I will dispense with the usual “unboxing” chatter typically seen in a review and get to the two most important portions of evaluating whether this saw carries any merit on portability, and more importantly answer the question, is it able to re-direct the majority of silica dust away from the user and into a suitable vacuum system. Off the rear of the blade housing there is a nylon sleeve that successfully houses the vacuum hose and power cord. The saw is light and portable, as one would expect from lightweight magnesium coupled with the accompanying Diablo HardieBlade; no surprises there. What is impressive, during cutting, there is well over (in my opinion) 80% reduction in dust entering the immediate space surrounding the handler. I actually took the time to replace my vacuum bag in my ShopVac to measure the amount of dust captured. Inevitably, there is some dust that doesn’t make it into the vacuum hose but the system handles the majority of it. While cutting anything other than the smallest of slices off Durarock, or other brands of cement board, within the first 12 inches of the cut the user must pause to move the hose and power cord off the right side of the cutting stock otherwise it does grab the surface but there aren’t too many ways around that. A small sacrifice to breath relatively fresh air and not worry about the damage you’re causing to your lungs. My overall assessment is that Skil has developed a successful system to reduce the ingestion hazard of silica dust. Skil has produced a saw with great features; portability, lightweight, and effective for a specialty saw. If you’re cutting a lot of cement board, an effective weapon for the Pro, Professional DIYer, or the average homeowner on a mission!
