Any can be put on casters. Any you can make flip up out feed and wings, so that is not an issue.
As I have mentioned several times, download the owners manuals and see how they are built. Yo wil then see about half of them are actually the same saw. Some contractor/hybrid have iron trunions, some aluminum.

The ols standby was the Delta COntractor. Old one. Not sure I trust new ones.

SS is a nice saw. I have a one generation old Ridgid ( no riving knife) and it is fine. If I can ever justify it, I would get a Saw Stop PCS or a Harvey cabinet 3 HP. Truth, with proper blades a 1 3/4 will rip 3 inch oak, so unless yo uare doing a lot of work with purpleheart or ironwood, the bigger saw is a “want” not a “need” . Only running a combo blade did I think I needed the bigger saw.
