Re: Kobalt Folding Sawhorse


Picked up a pair of the DeWalt horses last Friday, used em a little today. Couple of observations so far.

One, they interlock with each other so you can carry two at a time, but pretty much the only way to join and separate them is laying flat. Standing up on one end you have to flip the pair over after separating one end and they come apart as you're doing that.
Two, the legs lock in the folded position, which is nice, but the lock mechanism is a plastic spring loaded plunger, and depends on the plastic feet on the bottom of the legs to keep them locked. Once those plastic feet get broken or worn off, not sure how the leg lock will perform.

All in all, I'm happy with the purchase. They're light and strong. Setup is pretty easy. If they last the 5+ years that my Stanley set has, I'll be really happy.

Thanks for the review. My local HD was out of the Dewalt horses, so I ended up ordering a set.
I'll try and post back once I get a chance to use them.

Re: Kobalt Folding Sawhorse


Most of you guys will probably use yours more frequently and more heavily than I ever will. Mine are used as a stand for my miter saw mostly, which is permanently attached to a small wooden sled I made for it.

Re: Kobalt Folding Sawhorse


I used to use a lot of those tin ones. (I've still got about a dozen of them)

But am I the only one using this type?

They're pretty stout and adjustable and you can get them at just about any hardware store or lumberyard
