I'm honestly not sure why they even make them with the outriggers anymore since they serve no purpose. The Trojans do look great, but have no place on a finish phase project... Thanks for all the help and conversation, its really appreciated guys

That is the only thing I don't like about the Trojan's. You really can't set them up on finished floors without putting something underneath them to prevent scratching and gouging. Set up on subfloor, out in the garage or outside they are great.

Re: Recommend Sawhorse's


Wow! You finish guys really like the expensive horses. I am still a huge fan of the foldable Ebco saw horses. Menards marks them down to ten bucks a few times a year. I think I currently have 15 or so. If it wasn't for us setting them up in the mud often, I am sure they would last a lot longer. As it is, I probably get about two years out of each set.

Buy the Trojans but get the 27" high ones because once you put a 2x10 or 12 to have a 20' or so horse its not too tall. When framing I like to have a 20 foot setup,

I have a few sets of the Lowes Blue Hawk's. They are made by Stanley in the USA. Not that fancy. I have put large commercial doors on them thinking they might collapse.

I use these- they are easily the most stable folding saw horses I have ever worked with, and that includes a number of the ones recommended here. I made mine 6 ft wide, so they still fit in my truck easy, but give lots of working space.

just came across these on amazon. like the yellow that lean over but better.

I don't think they are as heavy duty quick in / out they look pretty good.
