I had pretty much the same experience as Kazooman when I bought my PCS 5 years ago … I got the over-arm dust collection and mobile base during April of that year when SawStop has their freebie deal.

As for the over-arm itself, I like it. It does a decent job of collecting dust so long as the blade is buried in the workpiece. The exception is when I am trimming the edge off a board (e.g. trimming a 6-1/8” board down to 6”) ... then it makes the same sort of mess my old Jet used to make.

FWIW, I have never even mounted the stock guard (it is still in the plastic wrapper).
