So glad I bought this. It made cutting large logs very easy. Some logs were at the manufacturer's specified 13" diameter limit and had no problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HoosierMadness Excellent Product, Well Thought Out, Easy to Use, Heavy Duty
Pleased with this log saw horse. Heavy duty, sturdy, portable. Allows one to stand rather than stoop too much when cutting. Used on 5 dead ash trees so far. Great find, best price on Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by woodman can use this almost anywhere
I heat my home with an outdoor wood furnace, and cut alot of wood. When I found this sawhorse and ordered it in Feb. the snow was still 3 ft deep, but I knew it would work for me when the time came to put it to use. I dought I will ever exceed its weight limit of 600+ lbs. I cut mostly oak, elm, maple, hickory, and some boxelder with real crooked branches..The saw horse works great for all.
The assembly instructions were alittle confusing at the beginning..found it easier to assembly from the end of instruction to beginning. The little black plactic end caps are not very usefull, they don't stay in place, lost one already. Over all very satified with capabilities.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whiteshu Well made, nicely finished. I even like the metric Button Head screws. Awkward to use at first.
As i am using it, I am getting more efficient with it. I still have to bend over to lift the logs, but I stand up straight to saw. This means less bending down and it keeps the saw out of the dirt.

It's hard not to mention the initial setup, it took me nearly an hour to put it together, but it'll make up for that time soon enough. Save yourself a few trips to your toolbox and get all the hex keys you'll need and an adjustable wrench before you start. M6, M8, M10, and M12 bolts. The instructions also reference "front legs" when they mean the short legs. Then for the arms connecting the V thing (pictured) there's no "front/back" so when it says "right/left" it's not deterministic, it's easy to face the teeth the wrong way.
It's solid and heavy and strong, I have no concerns about it lasting and holding up, it folds up nicely. The weight of it keeps it steady, and it's easy to pop a log up and lock it with the chain. Elevates the log for quick cutting and keeps it in place, no need to keep rolling the log.

This is a great time and back saver. It's rated for way more then I will ever try to pick up and place onto it. Assembly was not too bad. Just be ready to use Allen heads, adjustable wrench, and some patience. The directions are almost useless. I mainly went by photos in them. It works great for cutting kindling wood. Or anything I can place in it. You MUST BE ON FLAT SURFACE to use it. (You need to be careful not to hit the supports or the holder with your chainsaw). The chain holds the wood well and in place while cutting. It also doubles as a way to lock the saw horse for storage. The only con I could see was the small bolts that hold the jagged metal brace the wood to be cut rest's on. I used blue loctite on them and will be watching them closely. This saw horse works GREAT for cutting my kindling wood. Or any odd branches that are a bare to cut up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mixmox Very nice!
I am very happy with this product. It really makes cutting logs very easy.
Assembly: There was a tiny issue with the assembly - I think it was painted after drilling the holes and the thickness of the paint made it hard to get one of the bolts through. This was quickly remedied by inserting a suitably sized drill and removing the excess material. Assembly diagrams are rather small for those of us with older eyes.
You will need a selection of socket sizes and hex ‘Allen key’ to assemble the product. Assembly is pretty easy and all the parts were present.
Operation: Lift the end of the log into its cradle, drape the chain over the log and insert the ends of the chain into the chain holders below. Raise the log to just more than horizontal and the chain ends slide further into their holders. Release the log and it settles back into position firmly held by the chain. Cut the log with your chainsaw!
Since you are now cutting logs up in the air, it is way less strain on the back but you do need to watch out for falling and rolling logs as they get cut off.
Tip: You may find it useful to paint the middle link in the chain a different color so that it is easy to drape the chain over the log evenly.
Storage: The sawhorse folds up and can easily be carried, even through the woods. There are two pins that hold the folding leg in place when in use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by goodreason The Srong, Sturdy, Ultimate Sawhorse
The Ultimate Sawhorse is just that, well constructed, sturdy, folds nicely for easy carrying and storage. The red paint is baked on to prevent rusting. Nice height when the log is in place which minimizes stooping and prevents the chainsaw from hitting the ground.
The assembly instructions must have originally been written in ancient Greek and translated into English and Spanish. In reading and following the instructions and diagrams I ended up redoing 75% of the steps in trying to assemble the product. Whatever you do, don't tighten the nuts because it will render the nylon nuts useless. Some of the bolts are short, so as the product gets used pay close attention to that. There are no tools included, sizing is metric. Again, instructions said that one particular size would fit a unique bolt, not so. It was missing a nut and bolt and utilized a grade 1 nut and bolt for the replacement. In step 1A, I substituted the (2) M6 bolts with (2) 1/4”x 3/4” bolts with wing nuts for quicker assemble and disassemble.
Once assembled put the log in the cradle, run the chain around the log and thru the unique locking device and cut away. There are some safety precautions that should be taken before cutting. The sawhorse should be positioned on a level piece of ground to prevent it from tipping over, tilt the end of the log down just below level so the chain can lock into the device which will reduce any slack. I also tried multiple branches in the cradle and for safety reasons wouldn't recommend more than two.
Looking beyond the instructions, the equipment will give the owner many years of service.
