The Durst 600 series was designed for advanced amateur use and shipped in a protective package. For those two reasons it is not uncommon to find a seldom used or unused M601.
I've not used a glass carrier and its expensive to convert one to inserts if not provided at purchase. Using the laundry room for a DR I don't have dust issues. My condenser LPL and Leitz 1c are excellent blocking out dust once the negative is positioned for projection.
There are user dust complaints when using glass carriers. I assume dust wipes off glass easier than a negative and once the carrier inserted the 601 blocks dust as well as my LPL???
I reviewed the instructions Durst does not specify if a 6x6.45 insert is available????
With inserts Durst recommends using the SIXCALO heat-absorbing glass. Is their recommendation overkill with a 75w bulb??
