We all know you don’t buy a trailer hitch or a parachute from harbor Freight if they sold it and the list can be pretty long.
And we all know there’s been more than few times we have lost it with misaligned part or missing screw or 5 minute life span tools.
But then there are times like these when you are willing to forgive and forget and besides where else can a lumber jock hang out and even feel slightly in control of cash flow.
I found these gems few years back ( available online ?) and I must say these are Awesome.
Adjustable, Foldable, carry-able, and I mean. Solid as in 5 star….All is forgiven HF until next time.

Do your sawhorses have an item number on them?

OH, and I DO use the HF trailer hitch without any problems whatsoever and that is pulling a fully loaded U-haul tandem axle trailer multiple times.

Not a bad looking kit. I’d be tempted to attach a 2×4 to the top of the horse. I’d hate for a tool/blade to come into contact with the metal top.

I got the ones that Menard sells. Not saying they are better, but with a 2×4 on top they work too. Also they sort of nest together,even with the 2×4. I have had them for over 10 years, and they look brand new – no rust on ‘em either. And for the price they are a great value.

I have used mine on numerous projects and the HFs work great….......and yes they have survived an encounter with my circular saw. My bad. I plan on adding some 2×4s. I love the adjustable height and have even used the units as outfeed tables for my table saw with sheet of plywood on top.
