"I'd wanted a sturdier pair of tresses after my flimsier ones had collapsed once or twice having probably been overloaded. Read the reviews in these and bought them, cautiously because of the bad reviews about the plastic arms that stop the tresses collapsing. They don't seem as weak as has been suggested and if opened with care I can't see them breaking. I've tried them with load on them and they don't even wobble. With a plank on then I can comfortable walk on them. They are available cheaper else where but I paid the extra because through experience if anything breaks (within reason) I've never had a problem with a refund or exchange with screwfix."
"Adaptable flexible useful Easily collapsed for storage Easy to assemble Liked so much went back for another pair! Something's don't need to be all dancing and singing....just practical and user friendly These items have enabled me to build an extension Money well spent"
"These Stanley Saw Horses are top drawer, the working height is perfect, they are a lot stronger & more stable in comparison to lesser models but most of all the storage system with the fold up legs go away neatly into a compact space great buy!"
"Although a pricey product in comparision to other saw hourse this really is an outstanding product by Stanley. Once errected they are very stable, with large woring surface area, feels very strong and easily take my weight (13 stone) although not recommended for standing on! Clamp on an 8x4 sheet of ply/mdf and you have yourself a sturdy portable work bench. Plastic looks and feels strong, metal legs look the same. They neatly fold away and incorporate handy carry handle on both side (carry strap included, but not likely to use). Overall great product for the money."
"Yeah good horses. Was surprised to find them so good, both clamp together for carrying, which is an excellent feature.Then the individual locking on each horse and legs are very good quality for the price. Nearly bought the £75 set of horses but this have more than done the job."
"Bought these saw horses few weeks ago as i needed to make a make shift bench for a job i was on. Have to saw there amazing much better than the plastic type which I've used before but always found them unstable and not that supportive.These on the other hand are very supportive as they have a wide platform for the workpiece to fit on.and the metal legs are very stable.The best feature in my book as how compact they fold up for large saw horses the legs fold up inside and then the two saw horses clip together to make like a long case and they fit perfectly into the boot of my estate car.Also if you want to clamp to the saw horses you can just fit a block of wood in the recess on the underside without worrying about clamping to hard and snapping some fragile plastic bits.Well worth the money in my opion ."
"needed a temporary worktop to cut some sheet materail with my plunge saw in a loft conversion, these legs are easy to carry lightweight yet when put up create a very stable support, they lock together for easy storage a fantastic simple alternative to wooden saw horses"
"I think these are pretty good. Some of the plastic parts would break if used every day on site, but they seem good for DIY use. I've welded some pretty hefty steel frames on mine with no trouble at all, but I did use some 1" x 2" wood to distribute the weight across the tops. So if you look after them, and only use them occasionally, I would recommend them."
"Really pleased with these trestles I have been a professional carpenter/builder for 22 years and had many saw horses and trestles over the years but these are the best I have ever owned I particularly like the central handle which means you can pick them up with 1 hand to move them around, very useful, also very light but very strong they fold away nicely to and dont take up to much room in my van"
"Bought these to save space in the van. Sturdy and easy to manhandle. One oversight in the design however means you can't clamp your materials to the horses! A pretty major failing if you want to cut anything. This is a SAW horse after all."
"In principle the design idea is good, but if you need to use every day, look elsewhere. the plastic end clip broke after a week, and you cannot put anywhere near 340kg on them, mine broke straight through the middle with a few lenghts of 4 x 2 placed on them. - I had to purchase a all metal fold away pair. £50 straight in the skip"
"Clever fold up action and rigid when unfolded, but they are harder to fold up after they break. They don't work as saw horses because, as others have mentioned, the surface is very slippery plastic and the ribbed underside does not allow clamping the work piece. So how to use them? If you put your weight on one to hold the timber, it can easily break. Mine did and I'm only 10 stone (65kg). Definitely not fit for purpose; even cutting balsa wood with a junior hacksaw as it would just slide around. Got less than one week's use out of this product. Now looking for proper saw horses. No problems with Screwfix service or prices."
"Many of the glowing reviews here reflect exactly how I felt when I first started using these saw horses. I could elaborate on their many fine qualities but the fact is they simply don't last. Internal clips to hold the legs lasted a week! The end clips that hold the two units together lasted longer but now one has failed and they have simply become annoying. One of the key features is their compact state when stored or transported, with the clips broken they no longer hold together and the legs fly about. A shame really as there are few other options that are as handy and compact as these."
