What is the decibel rating of the DEWALT Chop Saws and Multi-Cutter Saw?
Declaration for the DW871 and DW872 (Chopsaw / Multi-cutter) per EN61029:
Declared Noise Emission Values
Sound Pressure Level at Operator's Ear LpA =95dBA
Sound Pressure Level Uncertainty KpA = 3dBA
Sound Power Level LwA =108dBA
Sound Power Level Uncertainty KwA = 3dBA
The sum of the emission value and the uncertainty is the limit below which there is a 95% confidence that the value of a single machine will perform when the machine is new.
This declared value was obtained by laboratory type testing in compliance with the stated standard and is not adequate for use in risk assessments. Values measured in individual work places may be higher than the declared value. The actual exposure values and risk of harm experienced by an individual user are unique and depend upon the way the user works, the workpiece / accessory interaction and the workstation design, as well as upon the exposure time and the physical condition of the user.
We, (Black&Decker Corp.), cannot be held liable for the consequences of using the declared value, instead of values reflecting the actual exposure, in an individual risk assessment in a work place situation over which we have no control.

I just purchased this saw and put it to the test. I am very impressed. Best cuts i from a saw. Cut through 4" square tubing like butter. Leaves clean and square cut on a material. Love this saw paid for it's self.
Two things right off the bat. The fence is not flat. I tried to use a square to set the fence to ninety degrees to the blade, but the fence has a 1/16" curve to it, so an accurate cut is out of the question. Luckily, there is enough meat to the fence to grind it flat, which I will have my neighbor do on his surface grinder. Second, the fence lock handle has a pretty good bend to it. It still works, but I worry about how long it will last. For the money, I expected somewhat better.
Pros: Cuts like hard butter through steel if you take your time.
