They really should have gone with a different lightweight material rather than plastic(polypropylene) like maybe aluminum cast. Not a fan of plastic, especially if its used to hold a load.

Not sturdy at all. Was expecting to be able to mount a miter saw on it but ended up making a table out of it. Still not very sturdy with a top on it.

I purchased this workbench to replace a very old metal-wood portable workbench that was very heavy and somewhat difficult to set up. The new workbench is lightweight, sets up easily and is fantastic for small-to-medium sized projects. It also stores in a minimum amount of space, especially handy for condo dwellers like me. I highly recommend it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WarrenMI Good value but some side to side play
I purchased the Husky X-Workhorse Workbench to hold a Wen 8" drill press.
The drill press weighs in the 35 pound range.
Assembly of the workbench was a breeze - the top is attached to the center post when the workbench is in its "collapsed" mode. Pull the top off of the center post, spread the workbench into its "X" shape and place the top on the top of the "X". There is a locking dial in the center of the top that secures the top to the bench.
There is a small amount of play (in my example, anyway, YMMV) in the top. It will wiggle just a touch if pressed upon. For my purpose this isn't an issue - once the drill press is set down on the top there is no play at all.
However - there is play in a rotational direction in the workbench. That is, if you twist the top in either direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) the legs themselves flex. Not optimal but it's the price one pays for having plastic legs on the workbench.
This doesn't impact the downward stability of the workbench - it has no problem supporting my drill press and one of the legs has a "leveler" built in so an uneven floor isn't a problem. Of course the drill press force is up/down - one might have an issue when, for instance, mounting a vice to the workbench and then beating on material secured in the vise (in any direction except beating down).
I bolted the drill press directly to the table top using two carriage bolts and wing nuts (4" x .5"); the bolts went through pre-drilled holes in the drill press base and then into pre-formed slots in the workbench top.
There are several pre-drilled holes in the workbench top, good for holding screw drivers, being used to secure tools with bolts, etc. However the underside of the workbench has a 'ribbed' construction so using clamps to hold things might be problematical. The drill press has two additional mounting holes but they did not line up with corresponding holes in the workbench top. Drilling into the top is an option, but I feel that two 1/2" diameter bolts will keep the drill press from vibrating when in use.
There are four threaded holes that can be used to screw a larger wooden bench top into place, and instructions are on the cardboard plaque that is attached to the workbench when purchased.
While I have no plans for frequent tear down/reassembly of the workbench, it's quite easy to do (unlock the top, remove the top, close the "X" legs, clamp the top to the center post, done!). The entire deal folds flat in less than 60 seconds.
For the price range I find this workbench quite acceptable.

Really like this product. Quick setup and easy to store. This is the best product I have seen for when you need a quick table to work on. Just wish I could still find them in stock in a Home Depot store.
