the DP is a bear to move (top heavy and wants to tip if leaves verticle). borrow a set of hands and get an old rug or sheet of cardboard under it then “scoot” it. I don’t know about having to anchor it (I’ve owned 2 and have never bothered). I have a Delta bandsaw (floor model) but I don’t use it as much as many people here so see if they chime in.

dust collection…a lot of people seem to like the Harbor freight unit with a chip separator and a better filter. If you’re thinking about a fixed unit with ducting you are probably going to need a larger unit and maybe in the cyclone category. I wish I could offer more but I am still suffering information overload on the subject. google “cyclone dust collection” and you’ll find a ton of opinions (with little concensus). But do keep that in mind in your shop design (minimize the duct runs).
