The Best Folding Sawhorse

Last Updated on May 14, 2020 by EditorWe sank over 40 hours of research and hands-on testing to find the best folding sawhorse on the market and to us, the Stanley Model 060864R Folding Sawhorses are the best value for your dollar.  When space is of importance but quality is equally as important, these Stanley Folding Sawhorses fold to a slim 2 inches (4 inches stacked together) but comes with the perks of stationary sawhorses.  What that means for you is a versatile sawhorse and workbench that hides as well as it supports your work–and at a price that is below the average prices of all our options.

All of the best folding sawhorse models you see here were selected based on their ability to impact tiny home, apartment, or even standard home living.  Space is something that we never have enough of and the less our lives are cluttered, the more effective we can be in our everyday lives.  

Best Folding Sawhorse Picks:

Stanley 060864R Folding Sawhorse (2-Pack)

Stanley Folding Sawhorse (model 060864R)

  • Material: Plastic
  • Folded Dimensions: 27″W x 4″D x 32″H
  • Weight: 6 pounds
  • Weight Capacity: 1,000 pounds
  • Perks: Hangers, v-grooves

While you might say metal would be more sturdy, these folding sawhorses knock that out of the conversation.  These plastic sawhorses are lightweight but have great stability.  You can see these (each order comes with 2 folding sawhorses) have v-grooves built into the support bridge, giving you a place to hold materials for cutting.  The sides also come with hangers for either keeping cords out of your work space, or for hanging other tools on them.  The tray connection in the middle is also nice because it can act as an area for storing tools as well.  The connection also adds to the overall stability but if you need any reinforcement that this is a great product, look no further than the Stanley name!  But to us when it comes to a value-added, quality folding sawhorse we have found our winner here.

WORX Clamping Sawhorse Pair with Bar Clamps, Built-in Shelf and Cord Hooks - WX065

WORX Clamping Folding Sawhorse

  • Material: Plastic
  • Folded Dimensions: 27″W x 3″D x 33″H
  • Weight: 8 pounds
  • Weight Capacity: 1,000 pounds
  • Perks: Hangers, detachable bar clamps, cutting grooves

Our next overall pick for the best folding sawhorse on the market would have to be these clamping sawhorses from WORX.  Like the Stanley Folding Sawhorses, the WORX Clamping Folding Sawhorse can support 1,000 pounds when used together.  They fold to a slightly thicker 3 inches deep but make up for that size increase with the detachable bar clamps included.  No other folding sawhorse on our list of the best folding sawhorses comes equipped with clamps for holding wood securely while cutting.  You of course can use them for anything else you’d clamp in a vice like this.  Then, much like the Stanley Sawhorse, you also get the equipment hooks and leg connection in the middle which also holds tools while on the job.  The only reason we feature the WORX folding sawhorse is the simply fact of a slightly higher price point.  To us, it’s not a major deal for having the detachable clamps but to the workhorses out there, it’s a heck of a nice upgrade from standard sawhorses.

Other Great Picks:

  • Material: Plastic
  • Folded Dimensions: 24″W x 2″D x 31″H
  • Weight: 6 pounds
  • Weight Capacity: 500 pounds
  • Perks: Hangers, etched ruler

Kicking off our best of the rest is a bit of a low-key option for potential buyers.  The EZ Travel Collection Folding Sawhorse comes with the (so far) stock hangers for tools and cords but it also has a nice etched ruler in the support bridge of the sawhorse.  “Measure twice, cut once” they saw and this folding sawhorse does just that.  The dimension are very accommodating for space-conscious individuals and will be sure to get whatever job done that you need.  It may not be atop our list of the best folding sawhorse models, but it’s an interesting choice nonetheless.

  • Weight: 13 pounds
  • Weight Capacity: 1,100 pounds
  • Perks: 2×4 support/jobsite table

If you’re targeting the best folding sawhorse but don’t have a concern of price, perhaps the ToughBuilt Folding Sawhorse is best for you.  As you can see, it’s also known as a “jobsite table.”  You can see the two slits on the sides, those are made to slide 2x4s into which creates a work table from just a single sawhorse.  Pretty incredible when you think about it!  And not only this very cool feature, the tabletop portion is sturdy!  Alone, the single folding sawhorse and jobsite table can hold 1,100 pounds!  If you add a second sawhorse, that number doubles!  These are easily the strongest folding sawhorses on our list, however, there is a price tag that comes with it.  It’s not a startlingly large number, but it’s the highest on our list for a combo set.

  • Folded Dimensions: 34″W x 6″D x 24″H
  • Weight:12 pounds
  • Weight Capacity: 1,000 pounds
  • Perks: Non-slip caps, custom bridge

The next two options on our best folding sawhorse list have two things in common; both require wood for full assembly and therefore, are both very customizable.  Starting with the Target Precision Folding Sawhorse Legs, you can see how all you receive is a set of legs.  The sawhorse bridge is completely up to you.  You could use 2x4s for a standard sawhorse, you could use a 2×12 for a small work table, and more!  As you can see in the display, this “sawhorse” can collapse into a very small profile, being no more than 6 inches in thickness needed to hide it.  If you’re looking for a folding sawhorse that can double as a table (pending the job), then you’ve got an excellent choice here.

Budget Picks:

Kicking off our budget picks, and picking up where out last choice left off, is the 2×4 Basics ProBrackets Sawhorse.  This may not totally qualify for our list of the best folding sawhorse options (mainly because it lacks “folding”) but it is something that is compact and can be hidden with ease.  Disassembled, the brackets can fit in a small storage bin.  Once assembled with 2x4s (you can only use 2×4 lumber, unlike the above model), the sawhorse can be as tall and as wide as you like.  So for those of you looking for the widest possible sawhorses, you may want to look into these ProBrackets Sawhorse.
