Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DBCOOPER This product does the job Great !
Just got these after reading the reviews and looking at other brands. Put a 2x6 on top and got the 1/4" bolts with wing nuts to keep the legs open and was good to go ! I might drill a 3/4" hole in the ends to put a dowel rod in so I can have a place to hang the saw on. Best saw horses around !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Perfect for my needs
I went through and read all of these reviews before purchasing and was almost convinced that I should buy something else. I decided to go to my local store to check them out before opting for the more expensive choices. Due to the fact that I live in an apartment, I didn't want to buy anything too bulky, but needed something that was going to last. Many of the reviews on here that are negative are cases where this product just didn't make sense.
I read many of the reviews stating that these things are ready to collapse due to not being able to pin open the legs. Here's your fix - Walk over to the hardware aisle and buy 8 1/4x3/4 hex bolts. It costs $0.88, and solves the problem. After you open the legs there is a gap at the top of the sawhorse on each leg. Just jam a bolt in on each leg (I bought two sawhorses = 8 legs) and these things are solid, and it only takes a second to put them in. If that is too much work for you to make these things stable, enjoy having a tough life
I've attached some photos of the bolts I used to pin the legs, and also of 2 of the sawhorses in action. The desk that is setting on horses is one half of a very large L-shaped desk. The total weight on the horses is about 200 lbs in the picture, and I put all of that up there myself by putting one side on the right horse, and then lifting the left side up and sliding the other horse underneath. Without the legs pinned, these guys would have collapsed immediately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Sturdy; Folds away to almost nothing
A salesman at my local Home Depot recommended these sawhorses. He also suggested I add a 2x4 to the top to keep from cutting into the sawhorse top. I've read a few complaints about stability but I've had no issue thus far. When compared to plastic, space hogging designs or rigid non-folding designs, this product beats the competition hands down. I've tried the plastic ones, the put together ones, and the ones with the brackets where you add your own legs out of 2x4...nothing as good as these. If you must have rigid stability, these are not for you. If you care more about portability and ease of storage...make the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary So portable!
I bought these to serve as table legs for doing art shows. I needed something sturdy and nice looking. I love how these fold up, it makes them easy to store in my car on the way to the event and even easier to store in my house when not in use. I was worried that the collapsible feature would make them wobbly, and there are NOT! I was situated on uneven ground recently and the adjustable leg height allowed me the flexibility to stay in that location without having to shim the bottoms.
my favorite part is the velcro strip to hold the legs down when not in use as well as the carrying handle, makes life so much easier!
Would buy them again and recommend to friends.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DrJackpot not what you hoped for
Too heavy after you add a top board. The narrow lifting handles pinched my fingers when reaching over into my pickup truck to hoist them out. Unstable (as many have noted here). That beautiful paint job fades to a very dull creamy yellow if left outside extended time. If the legs become slightly out of alignment after use it becomes difficult to get them to fold in. My set got bent beyond repair when a large oak tree fell on them during a rain storm. OK for occasional use but not what a pro needs. I've done a lot of planning and think I have a better design. Just need to get it up and going.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYJoshua Heavy Duty
I purchased these Saw horses as a spare/back up pair to my first set (too many projects for one set). They are very heavy duty and I know I will get years of service from them.
The good: The adjustable leg height is very time consuming, but very strong the way it is designed.
Once folded, the horse has a carrying handle that makes transporting them very easy.
The Bad: I do not like the fact that you cannot lock the legs open. This can lead to problems when moving projects around on top of these horses which could cause the legs could collapse.
Overall: Heavy steel construction, and very compact when collapsed for storage. Great for those who lack storage space when these are not in use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pierre Some point to make it better
I have 4 of them. This is a good product, but some modifications can make it excellent.
- Only three position for the legs is not enough. Continuous incrementation would be much better
- Total height 34", this spells 2" too short in my book. 36" will make it much better and compatible with table saw height for outfeed.
- Paint stains wood. I use these sawhorses to handle large sheets of plywood and the yellow paint stains them.
But these are minor complains compare to how useful and sturdy they are. They will last a lifetime and can support the worst abuse.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOMMADONNA19 Perfect for all jobs!
This is the second set that I purchased. The first set was for my husband. He loved them. My dad needed to borrow them and he fell in love with them. I couldn't remember where I got them and told my mom the wrong store. When she came home with the wrong ones he just said oh well and used them but kept saying he wished he had a set like ours. I recently decided to get looking and found them again! He loves the fact that the legs are fastened to the frame. The other set he has don't fasten and when you lift them you never know if you will have all the legs to set it back down again.These are compact and solid! They are the last set of sawhorses you will ever need to buy! (unless you need more than one set)
