This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Whether you're a professional builder or a weekend remodeler, you will quickly find a pair of sawhorses to be indispensable, though they can be tricky to carry and store. These foldable models, however, go where you need them to easily and, when you have finished working, won't take up too much room. Some can even double as handy tables. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best folding sawhorse on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 11, 2019:

There are plenty of foldable sawhorses available, but we looked specifically for sturdier models that can handle regular use, which omitted many of the flimsier plastic choices. That said, we did add the Bora Portamate; although it's not plastic, it's not known for being ultra-rugged. It's not overly expensive or large, however, making it okay for casual users. For the tougher side, we selected the Hide-A-Horse Folding and the ToughBuilt Steel. The former features all-wood construction while the latter is steel, materials that should last well into the future. The Goplus Adjustable is another good metal choice, but note that its weight capacity is on the lower side. Finally, we added a model from Metabo HPT, which is Hitachi Power Tools' new name. This recently rebranded model has the same features as the old Hitachi model, but it remains to be seen whether the hinges suffer from the same durability problems, as they aren't yet tested for the long haul.
