Several sets of these Crawford's have endured four years of heavy use by me, almost always set up for stud cutting/header assembly or for panel cutting. No failures, no corrosion, just a little paint fading.
I NEVER use these bucks on soft or unstable ground. I imagine the legs would punch into the soil around a construction site. If I had to, I'd adapt my leg wedges, describe below.
They are always cheaper at the local home centers ($20/each today) because of weight effect on shipping costs.
ALWAYS short screw a 2x4 or 2x6 top plate on to keep blades away from steel (notch one end of top plate with 1-3/8" recess and the other end with a 1-3/4" recess to support interior and exterior doors - consider lining with felt to protect door finishes).
FABRICATE a wedge to brace the legs. I never use these leg wedges with heavy loads, which keep the sawhorse stable and safe by gravity, alone. But with light loads, you need leg wedges, which can be metallic or dimensional lumber or even plywood trapezoids. With these in place, the legs can't close and the assembly remains rigid.
If you go plywood, you can make a trapezoid which comes to within eight inches of the cross bar. Use a rectangle of plywood to join the two trapezoids and you have created an under-table frame on which you can set up a shelf to store additional tools (saws, squares, straight-edges, etc.). In doing this, notch the plywood trapezoids and cross panel to interlock (like a knock-down eggcrate). This gives you parts which store flat, but which provide a foundation for the sawhorse when set up.Read more ›
I have found these metal ones to be stable and have not had a problem with them collapsing. I have had one set up outside holding siding and materials for months without a problem. If, you have problems with people or material bumping into them that is a separate issue. A simple fix for it is to cut a 2x4 to the desired width and put it inbetween the spread legs. I took one set and drilled holes in the top and ran a stringer across the full space to form a rigid platform. Easy to take back apart. Simple solution.
Again, great items for their purpose --1) Ability to fold these sawhorses into a compact size that takes up very little space, 2) Ability to easily transport them as they have a built in handle, and most importantly, 3) Ability to hold a lot of weight.
They are indestructible. That's a plus with wooden or plastic sawhorses but a negative with this sixteen pound steel monster. They can damage things because the ends can have the force of a sledge hammer when folded and moved for transport or storage.
They are clumsy and hard to open because the legs have to be folded out and spread while the thing is unsupported (you can support the second one on the first to unfold and spread the legs). Take care when unfolding the legs, because you can get a nasty pinch by the "ears" that are supposed to stop the legs from folding inwards.
The instability is the worst fault. There is nothing keeping the legs spread apart except friction with the floor and the weight of the load. If the load get bumped, the legs on one end can and do come together. At that point, the little ears stopping the legs from folding back into the base no longer engage and the entire load falls in an unpredictable manner. You can see that situation with the far set of legs in the picture. This doesn't happen with a couple of 2 X 4's but is a big problem with a stack of solid core doors or wooden panels. It's happened one time too many with me in spite of care. The damage caused cost me far more than a set of stable, lightweight, quality sawhorses would have.
I think these sawhorses should be taken off the market as unsafe. They deserve a zero star.
