I cannot answer all of your questions, but can offer a few comments. When I purchased my 3hp PCS, they had one of their frequent freebie offers going and I chose the dust collection. That was four+ years ago and I do not recall having to spend anything extra for the necessary blade guard. Times may have changed. The guard/collection system works fine, but, like most, it is not a panacea and it will not capture every last bit of dust above the table.

I recently made a post about some upcoming offerings from SawStop. One of the new products is what appears to be a better overhead dust collection / blade guard system. I would suggest that you explore that before you pull the trigger.

You will absolutely love your SawStop saw.
