ToughBuilt Sawhorse/Jobsite Table Review TB-C700

Toughbuilt Sawhorse Table
PTR Review
  • Pro Rating 9.5

We used to roll our own sawhorses from 2x4s but after using the ToughBuilt C700, we like the options and adjustability it provides. It lets you do things that would otherwise be very challenging with a standard sawhorse.

Overall Score 9.5 (out of 10)

ToughBuilt Sawhorse Features Helpful Innovations

The sawhorse has been ripe for innovation for some time now, and it looks like ToughBuilt is one of the companies to take it on. The ToughBuilt C700 Sawhorse/Jobsite Table improves upon the traditional design of this unsung hero of the jobsite, making it more versatile, portable, and ultimately, more useful.


Pros

  • Individually adjustable legs
  • Very sturdy as a sawhorse or as a table base
  • Side supports pop out for extra functionality
  • All steel, no plastic

Cons

  • Heavy compared to some other metal sawhorses, though very sturdy (not an out-and-out “con”)
  • Folding and unfolding takes some effort
  • More expensive than some other sawhorses, but you get what you pay for

Recommendation


It’s easy to recommend the ToughBuilt Sawhorse/Jobsite Table. On the portability front, it folds up to a very compact package and transports easily. Functionally, it can support a lot of weight and it’s very adjustable. It even opens you up to some applications that can be challenging with a standard sawhorse. We love the table supports. It is a little pricey compared to other sawhorses, but in this case, the price feels justified.

A Supportive Sawhorse

The ToughBuilt Sawhorse/Jobsite Table has a lot going for it, but its bread and butter really is its stability in any configuration.

First of all, this sawhorse features 100% steel construction. ToughBuilt tells us that the C700 can support up to 1300 lbs. We didn’t test this claim—mostly because we didn’t have anything that heavy on-hand to place atop them. We can, however, believe it. Absolutely no part of the TB-C700 construction feels flimsy or cheaply made.


The Toughbuilt Sawhorse also features big, pop-out feet that self-level and offer a wide base. And we mean it—the legs touch down with a generous 25-inch wide separation. Compare that to the 18-inch spread on the DeWalt metal folding sawhorses. The flat bottoms also make the C700 an ideal choice for both hard and soft surfaces because the feet won’t sink into soft soil.

The downside to the “all steel, no plastic” approach, if you really want to consider it as such, comes down to weight. At 23 lbs each, the Toughbuilt Sawhorses feel kind of heavy. Still, with the stability they provide, we find it hard to complain.

A Variety of Configurations

One of our favorite features of the Toughbuilt Sawhorses revolves around its versatility. This starts with the individually-adjustable legs. These not only give you some options in terms of choosing your own working height but working on uneven terrain becomes much less problematic. You can just keep your surface level by adjusting each leg separately.

You also have the option of joining two of the Toughbuilt Sawhorses together to form a very sturdy jobsite table. Supports at the end of the sawhorse extend out to accommodate either 2x4s or 4x4s.

Your boards will fit flush to the sawhorse surface, or you can drop down another support to give yourself a sacrificial edge to work with. The whole setup locks into place, so any inadvertent bumps won’t affect the stability of your table.

The top of the Toughbuilt Sawhorse/Jobsite Table features a grippy, sandpaper surface. It also comes with pre-drilled holes for securing boards to it, should you desire.

Our Favorite Feature: Cutting Brackets

We really like the cutting brackets found on the C700. These extra material supports lay flat against the side and out of the way when you don’t need them. However, fold them out and you can easily support and cut PVC pipe, EMT, or more. We also liked using them to hang tools temporarily.

Further down, the Toughbuilt C700 has material support pegs on the legs. This is really helpful for layout purposes, or in a pinch when you need to stage some plywood or OSB for ripping and installation.

ToughBuilt also makes a C300 sawhorse which gives you only the most basic features without the table option or material support pegs. Honestly, given the similar pricing, it really makes sense to grab the top model C700.

Pack Up and Go

ToughBuilt did a good job of designing the Sawhorse/Jobsite Table for compact and easy transport, but there are a couple of caveats here. We mentioned one already: they weigh a bit more than your standard sawhorse at 23 pounds each.

Breakdown of these sawhorses also takes a bit of effort. The legs come together and fold up into the bottom of the sawhorse. In the end, with the top handle, the package stays pretty tidy and portable.

But, there is an order of operations that needs to be followed for it to pack up effectively. Despite that order being labeled pretty clearly on the body of the sawhorse, we found that the first time through the process took some trial and error. Of course, we don’t care for reading instruction manuals either, so maybe we’ve identified part of our problem.

At any rate, neither of these issues wind up as big detractors from the Toughbuilt Sawhorse/Jobsite Table, at least not for us. We pretty much set up our sawhorses, and they stay set up over the course of the day. If you’re likely to set up and break down multiple times per day, these might be issues worth considering.

Pricing

You can pick up the ToughBuilt C700 Sawhorse/Jobsite Table for $49.97 apiece. This feels a little pricey compared to other sawhorses on the market. However, considering the solid build quality and heightened functionality, the price seems appropriate. Plus, each one comes with a Limited Lifetime warranty. Unless you lose it or someone walks off with it, you’ll only have to buy it once.

Recommendation

It’s easy to recommend the ToughBuilt Sawhorse/Jobsite Table. On the portability front, it folds up to a very compact package and transports easily. Functionally, it can support a lot of weight and it’s very adjustable. It even opens you up to some applications that can be challenging with a standard sawhorse. We love the table supports. While you pay a bit more for the quality of these sawhorses, the price feels justified.

4x4uk wood will not fit in the end adjustable jaws. Miss-sold to the uk market.
Purchased 2 of these my self. 90x90mm max.

Bought the C650 because of the adjustable legs. However, if you adjust the legs to taller heights, (30″ or more), you cannot fold the legs into the unit – you have to then shorten the legs to fit back inside the saw horse. So, you will have to adjust the leg length each time you fold and unfold the legs. I have a Kobalt saw horse and the legs at 30″ fold inside of the unit. Also, inside ends of the C650 legs are sharp – first time I closed the camlock, I grabbed the leg and sliced my finger.… Read more »
