We have a ton of super cheap-ass plastic folding sawhorses around the Toolmonger shop, and we use the hell out of ’em. They’re awesome because while they’re pretty limited in what they’ll hold, they don’t cost much so you don’t feel bad if you get paint all over them or accidentally break one from time to time. We also have a couple of Stanley’s FatMax Mobile Project Centers, which we like as well, though we’re a little more careful with those. That’s why these otherwise-pretty-blah sawhorses caught my eye: they’re cheaper than a project center, but they look significantly stronger than the all-plastic sawhorses we currently own.
Assuming Stanley’s load capacity ratings are accurate, these must be pretty sturdy, rated at a whopping 2,900 lbs. each. The legs themselves are aluminum while the top and bottoms of the horses are polypropylene. Grooves in the top assist you in holding lumber in place, and rubber inserts on the feet help stabilize the whole thing on hard surfaces. (My plastic sawhorses slide around like mad on my epoxy floor.) The legs adjust individually for height, too, so you can dial them in for stability on uneven surfaces.
While they’re cheaper than project centers, they’re not cheap. Expect to pay around $50-$60 each for these, depending on where you shop. That’s too much to own a bunch just for the hell of it, but I wouldn’t mind having two of ’em kicking around for more serious work.
