"Quick Action" Carbide Tipped Hole Saws
Available in 19 sizes to get any number of jobs done fast! Aggressive carbide tipped teeth with deep self-cleaning gullets easily cut thick or layered building materials including wood, wall tile, fiberglass, plastic, ----- even fiber-cement siding (including popular James Hardie and CertainTeed fiber-cement products).
Quick-change pilot drills with a built-in, tight gripping hex shank are available in both high speed steel and carbide tipped designs. The extra length of these pilot drills allows the drill point to extend 1” (25 mm) beyond the hole saw's teeth for cutting uneven surfaces like lap siding. Cutting a hole in the wall plate area of a house clad with fiber-cement siding is a breeze! A generous 2-1/4” (57 mm) hole saw cup depth is also versatile for cutting through a variety of other wall cross sections.
A quick-connect/quick-release arbor design easily attaches or changes out the pilot drill or hole saw. The unique quick release feature ejects saw plugs with ease!

What materials can the hole saws be used on?
Malco’s carbide tipped hole saws provide quality cuts in fiber cement siding and backer board material. Other varieties of materials can also be cut, including wood, wall tile, fiberglass and plastic.
The hole saws will cut thick and multi-layers of material as all sizes have a generous 2-1/4” (57mm) saw depth.
Are there kits available?
Malco offers a custom kitting program that allows you to pick and choose products to build your own kit. Malco’s carbide tipped hole saw sizes of 3” (HF7) and 4-1/8” (HF10) and HHA1 arbor/pilot will allow you to have essentials needed for completing a fiber cement siding job. We also suggest adding Malco’s FCC3 hand nibbler, FCFG facing gauge, FCG2 overlap gauge, fiber cement turbo shear (TSF1 for Fiber Cement, TSF2 specifically for backerboard for Kitchen & Bath), and FCN notcher to your kit.
Why are the Malco carbide tipped hole saws different from others available?
This set of hole saws will cut into fiber cement and other backer materials to make holes for water lines, electrical conduit, outlet boxes, lights, lamps, water hose taps, dryer vents, stove and furnace vents, copper and plastic pipes, electrical boxes.
It cuts through multiple layered materials faster than competitors. It is aggressive and therefore cuts many layers quickly.
The quick change adapter and ease of removing the bit make this attractive to the contractor who changes sizes regularly. This adapter system also makes removing the plug material from the saw very quick and easy.
What are the benefits of having a hole saw “carbide tipped”?
Carbide tipped hole saws have a much longer life compared to conventional type hole saws (Bi-metal style) when cutting Fiber Cement siding or Backer board. They can last up to 50 times longer.
Faster cutting speed is another benefit. The saws have a aggressive cutting action with deep gullets to keep the hole saw teeth clear of chips and sawdust, which allows the teeth to cut, helping to give the hole saw it’s fast cutting speed.
