I got 2 of them thinking they might be good for drywall and plywood. Do you think they'd work ok for that?

Never used one but I don't like the look of it. I think I'll keep all my body parts.

Why is this easier than a folding table? Most of the demonstrations it shows having a piece of plywood on top and using it as a table. If you have space to tote around a piece of plywood, you have space for an actual table

Are they also trying to claim that it's strong enough to support the bucket from a front loader (from the picture)?

At first glance I thought, "That looks neat." Then after a moment I thought, "No way I'm using any sort of power saw on top of that." As someone else said already, if you can carry that and a 2' x 4' panel, you can carry a folding table that will be 10x more stable. HD says none available within 100 miles of me anyway.

Pretty useless design. You can only use it as a table or work surface if you have a heavy piece of plywood. It advertises itself as portable? WTF. Who wants to carry a 2ftx4ft piece of with them to a picnic? A 2x4 1/2" sheet of plywood weighs 10lbs and has splinting edges. Plus the steel frame for this thing weighs 11lbs. Total that is a 21lb table to cart around, so weighs more than a regular plastic folding table. Also you have to try to fit a 2'x4' piece of plywood in your trunk.

This table is the same size, has adjustible height, includes a top, has convenient carrying handles, collapes for easy storage/carrying. It costs more money, but far more useful.

I can't believe this thing actually made it into production, and someone at Home Depot approved it for sale in their stores. No surprise it's on clearance.

It is not easier than a folding table.

A standard 62" bucket only weighs around 500lbs​. As long as the weight is pretty evenly distributed, the frame could support around 1500lbs.

Been using one for about 3 years. Use almost daily. Works great. Might get another just for a backup.

Wow, so many critical comments from people who haven't used one. For a different perspective, here is a Pro Tool Review of them: https://www.protoolreviews.com/to...iew/17281/

I think it's more of a material support stand than a table, like a traditional set of saw horses. If you are already pulling up somewhere with a truckload of lumber to build a house or 30 sheets of plywood or drywall you can unfold these and get to work. This isn't really something you keep in the garage for Saturday projects.

I also got this small sturdy Dewalt folding table for that sort of thing. $69 was $99. The legs are kicked out by a linkage to a pull handle in about a second

I'm not saying this product is overall bad, I just don't see the use as a makeshift table like most of the pictures.
