US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Review

Designed to fit any miter saw or compound slide saw, this Trojan standis light, portable, and easy to set up. It provides 13 feet of overall support with both ends fully extended, and while we would have liked to see quick-release adjustments, it is a generous amount of room by most standards. The surface is not predrilled for mounting, so you'll have to drill and mount your saw yourself. Construction is rugged steel, and the welds are solid, as are the rollers on the extensions. In order to reduce weight, Trojan has kept the legs fairly thin, and as a consequence the unit isn't as burly as some models. But depending on the saw model you intend to mount, and where you plan to set up (indoors, outdoors, or in the shop), this may or may not be an issue. The wheels are 10 inches in diameter and roll well, and in terms of portability, the stand's relative lightness is a positive. The table measures 39-1/2 inches long by 16 wide by 35-1/2 inches tall. --Jonathon Tudor ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Heavy Duty Miter Stand
Last fall I purchased a 12 inch sliding compound miter saw. I soon realized I needed a place to set it up but give me the flexibility to move it out to a job site. The saw weighs 62 pounds. Thus, I needed a stand that could take the weight, easy to breakdown, and give me a work surface to support the wood I was cutting.

The stand has wing arms that extend up on each side to support the wood for cutting. The wing arms extend up and quickly adjust--I took a permanent marker and marked the location on the extension rod where the wing becomes level. This allows me to quickly lock in a level work surface.

I strongly advise getting the optional miter stop attachment. This is good for multiple cuts of the same length. However, I improved on the screw that attaches to the stand. I changed the screw to a thumb screw making it easier to move it around and make adjustments faster--hint to the Trojan folks. These wings are a real selling point in fully supporting your work. Other stands have these adjustable rollers which you have to adjust everytime you do a cut which slows you down.

When I received the stand the top board was slightly damaged due to shipping, I called Trojan--since that is what it says to do in the box. They quickly shipped me a new board. The box needed to have padding for shipping. I would suggest painting the board to match the stand or paint it an accent red color. This will keep it resistant to rain and the saw dust sweeps easily off a glossy surface. Not sure why Trojan does not paint it to begin with.

If you plan to use a big saw like mine you may need to mount the saw first to a 3/4inchx24inchx24inch plywood base, then attach the base to the top with self tapping screws. This was needed in order to allow the saw to sit back far enough to take full advantage of 12 inch wide stock on the rollers and wings. Also the saw needs the extra width of support. This did not create an off balanced stand.

Finally, if you put a heavy saw on this stand you may need a little help to fold the stand down. Just make sure the saw is locked down and can not slide.

Overall, the quality of the stand, its portability, and functionality make it a great addition to the home depot of tools.

5-0 out of 5 stars Trojan Rolling Stand is a great worksaver
I bought a rolling miter stand because the heavy DeWalt sliding double compound saw was too heavy to lug around; also, plywood on sawhorses makes a lousy stand, and using a miter saw sitting on the floor isn't as productive as a stand.

The DeWalt stays bolted to the Trojan, since it's so easy to roll and set-up. With the Trojan's large rubber tires, I can also move the saw up and down stairs by myself, even inside a finished house.


Trojan should use high-quality plywood for the table instead of ½" MDF. MDF looks cheap, the edges can break off, and you wouldn't want it to get wet.

It would have been nice if the folded-up stand/saw stored vertically instead of horizontally (which takes up more space.)


Initial set-up was straight forward, it came with all the parts, and it was easy to adjust the height of the end rollers to match the height of my miter saw.

Any miter saw should work on this stand.

I can open-up the Trojan with saw attached, in under a minute, and that's being careful. Takes slightly longer to fold it up. It rolls as easily as a hand truck when folded, although since I'm tall, I have to lean over to hold it up.

For cutting short pieces of stock, neither 32 inch table extension is needed. Otherwise, unscrew a T handle bolt to lift an extension in place. Align with your eye to get the level right, and tighten the handle. Takes about 20 seconds per side. The excellent extensions have cross supports that provide multiple points of support for varying lengths of work. For really long pieces, I use a separate work stand, not attached to the Trojan.

If you'll use the miter stand outside on soft (but level) ground, consider getting one with large tires that stay down when the table is opened up (Trojan MS2000 or the Rousseau 2950). Stands that rest on 4 legs when opened (HTC HP-575PK or Delta 50-155) might sink into a soft surface (such as grass) when setting it up - OR - tip over, once set up. With the Trojan, I put a piece of wood under one end for stability, as the tires are a firm base for that end of the stand.

Another benefit of a stand with tires that stay on the ground is you can then roll the opened stand. E.g., #1 - store the stand/saw set-up in a nearby secure location for the duration of a job. Then when starting work, roll the stand/saw where it's most convenient. E.g. #2 - if the stand isn't exactly where you want it, roll it there, without folding it up. Stands like the HTC or Delta are difficult to move once they are opened, especially if you're alone.

I'm 6/4 and find the Trojan's height perfect -- the miter saw's table is 39 inches off the ground.

Everything folds up into a single compact unit, so there's nothing else to carry or remember to take, and nothing pokes out (like the extension rollers on the Rousseau 2950).

Summary: A well-thought-out functionally designed product that improves productivity -- primarily because it sets up quickly and has large rubber tires that stay on the ground. I'd get the same one again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Crown Moulding Project made Simple
Bought a new house just recently and alway wanted crown mouldings up in the dining room. Paid to have it done initally and was surprised by how effortlessly the carpenter went about completing the project. It turned out beautiful!
Inspired by this I went about collecting the tools and knowledge to take on the other rooms in the house.
In my quest to tool-up, I found these customer reviews exceedingly helpful. Spent a generous amount of time studying my options and finally bought the Makita 12" sliding compound miter saw. Put this beauty on the Trojan platform but, this set-up in itself still required the purchase of the Trojan extension. With this I Now I have enough support to easily slide the 16 foot lenghts of crown stock from side to side pass the saw.
The initial Trojan unit was defective and Amazon quickly sent me another to replace it. I took the advice from a few of the reviews found here and replaced the mdf base with a piece of 3/4" hardwood plywood. Unfortunately, I could not simply attach the plywood onto the existing mdf saw base: That would have created a height problem with the wings, preventing the unit from folding back neatly onto itself when I wanted to break down the unit for transport. Since I definitely did not want to fuss with adjusting the height of the wings each and every time I wanted to do a project. I eliminated this tedious step by taking the mdf out altogether. Now I just roll-in and fold out the wings and everything is level with the surface of the Saw table .
I finshed the plywood base by putting a hardwood border around it to preserve the edge and to prevent things from rolling off.
The new saw base has a final dimensions of 26" by 40" which is securly attached onto the frame of the Trojan with 10 screws.
Other than that I followed the reviews and picked up a digital miter from amazon and a crown moulding book from Home Depot.
Follwed the instructions and made a complete set of Crown "Templates" as suggested which I would more that highly reccomend to anyone wanting to avoid crown "insanity."
Armed with the Makita, the Trojan platform and my Senco finish nailer I'm now on my 9th room.
P.S. To SAVE yourself alot of work, Buy the wood crown stock already primed, and give it 2 (TWO) coats of paint while it's still on the ground.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Stand - A Back Saver!
I'm a homeowner and word working enthusiast with a bad back. I have a very small area to store tools so I frequently had to carry a miter saw from storage to a work location. Without a stand, I was constantly bending over to use the saw. Although I have only used the Trojan MS-2000 for a couple of months, I have found it to be one of the most useful and back saving tools I own. With its large tires it moves easily over rough surfaces. It is a breeze to set up and tear down for transport. I find myself taking on projects I had put off for fear of transporting a 50 pound saw to the work site. With the Trojan MS-2000 it is easy and even fun. Bravo Trojan --- A great product!

4-0 out of 5 stars To a casual do-it-yourselfer this one looks like a winner
Well, based mainly on the reviews written here I broke down and bought a Trojan and then modified its table similarly with an enlarged sheet of 1/2" MDF, correspondingly shifting the base of my DeWalt 708 more to the rear of the unit to increase the useable width available for material to pass and still maintain contact with the wing supports. One caveat: this procedure does tend to create imbalance with such a large amount of weight in play, especially with the Dewalt's saw blade pushed all the way back on its rails. The Trojan in this configuration hasn't tipped yet, and with material loaded there should be no issue at all. But just standing there waiting for work it is a bit tipsy.

Having said that, the Trojan appears to be mainly well constructed. The exception is the flimsy pair of caps provided to hold the cart's wheels on the axle. A better approach might be to offer an axle pre-drilled at its ends to accept substantial cotter pins, but I don't know. I will say what we have looks and feels somewhat insecure.

Also, my table doesn't fold exactly right, with one set of folding legs binding somewhat upon collapse. This further causes the little locking hook to not meet its pin correctly.

I enjoy this work station's portability immensely--those pneumatic tires roll like a dream--and even with all that dead weight of such a large saw it has not proven difficult to set up and break down. I'd advise having a helping hand with your saw rigged. I did first time it in my garage with the help of woman with a strong back and it _still_ threatened to get away from us for a second. Alone on my work site it simply got away from me and down went the saw onto the deck with a hard thud! I would imagine that fatigue and unfamiliarity with the operation played a role there, but still, with a 708 on top the operation is dicey at best.

On balance, the Trojan enhances my saw. And just think--now I've got a Dewalt 708 on wheels! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars no nonsense horses
I met these horses when some hotshot framers from oregon showed up at the jobsite with a whole bunch of attitude and some fancy tools. Besides the titanium hammers, these were my favorite gadgets of theirs. These horses, once properly set up, will hold ANYTHING. We stacked forty 2X8X18s on them and started cutting them for rafters. Occasionally, two or more carpenters also climbed on top to nail above and these horses didn't groan. The rafters had steel c-channel sistered on them, and once the wood was up, we stacked almost a ton of steel on the horses and started working on them. They never gave any sign of stress. Any length 2X can be installed as the top, giving the opportunity to make a wider set of horses if need be, but the drawback is that once set up, they don't fold for transport, you have to break them down first. Made strong and simple, great for framers and siding guys. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Portability is what sold me.
I'm a residential contractor, mainly into remodeling. I use a compact truck and trailer to haul my tools and materials. Space is at a premium. I've tried a few types of portable horses and came to the conclusion that these leg sections are the best on the market. Super strong, light weight, space savers and a snap to operate. I'm writing this review just before I order 6 more pair. 4 pair of the 37" and 2 more pair of the 27". I use them for my mitre saw station, cutting table and scaffolding.

5-0 out of 5 stars Trojan Sawhorses
This sawhorse is absolutely the best foldable and portable sawhorse on the market, and it is also one of the most inexpensive.
The metal angle iron hinged legs with gripper teeth make these horses extremely strong yet easy to transport. Also, these leg stands can be used with any length of 2X dimensional lumber to make a sawhorse that fits any need.
For strength, durability, simplicity of design and flexibility and ease of use, I have not seen another sawhorse product that can match this unit. And best of all, it is made in the good old USA, by Trojan Manufacturing in Portland Oregon.
I would highly recommend these units to contractors and home users alike.

Trojan MFG. Makes some pretty impressive items . This is not one of them. The stop is not very sturdy. It does the job for repetitive cuts with trim but be careful with it . You can easily knock it out of whack with a 2x6. If you mount a back fence to the wheel side extention wing , a block and clamp work pretty good. For fine work , I prefer a broset stop. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Like a third hand.
I bought the 35" work center and I plan to buy at least one more of these to go with it. I think it would be handy to have one close to the saw and one farther away when I am cutting boards of different lengths.

4-0 out of 5 stars All around winner
I can't think of a more versatile tool which combines compactability and usefulness like this tool does. I have a floor standing roller, but sometimes it can get in the way when I have to transport it. I like the option of just clamping this one on to the miter stand support, or to another 2x4, and going right to work. On the other hand, if I am using a table saw, it takes some time to construct a stand to hold it. Over all, its a great tool, and when I can afford a few more, I think I'll take the plunge. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good value
Here's the deal. This base makes small table saws a lot more useful. It took about 1.5 hours to set up and tune. Quality and parts were ample - I added a few flat washers to improve connections.

It fit my saw ProTech 4006 even thought that model number was not listed. Fence and ruler are high quality - remember this is the reason to buy it - 100% better than stock fence on any small saw.

I trimmed a bit here and there but found it worth what I paid. Note - this makes the under table router mount much more useful too!

3-0 out of 5 stars Quality Control?
This stand has helped me out a lot. The only problem is that the fence cam did not work when it arrived the holes were drill in the wrong places. Infact it just barley fit over the rail. I called to get a replacement. Still waiting months later. So I ground the cam down and it works pretty good now. It is a shame thet don't care enough to send a replacement and don't check their product closer before they ship it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
I got this unit and was not thrilled from the get go. It took alot of work to make it fit my Makita saw, much more than the adds claimed. Had to drill new holes,shim up the table to meet the saw table, and really mess with it,alot.The "adjustable legs are just a friction screw, that looks like they may last a year.I am an contractor,who has worked in the trades for over 25 years.This isn't worth $200.00, not if you are working with your tools for a living.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny
This bad boy can take an ordinary bench saw and turn it into a high end cutting machine. I bought one for my Makita 2708 about six years ago. Let me tell you , it just made the saw so much more useful. Not only do you get increased capacity , you get increased safety. This thing is rock solid. If you buy this spend a little more and buy the outfeed table. The whole setup is very impressive. Sheet goods , even by yourself, are a piece of cake. Long stock is no problem. You don't have to push the stock half way and then hurry and jump around back to pull it the rest of the way through. Just safely and smoothly push it through from the front. After having one of these for so long , I can't stand using someone elses table saw.Unless they have this or a rousseau. Even the new Dewalt and Bosch saws are no match for this. When I got my new Makita 2703 I bought the rousseau instead of another Trojan. There are many differences. The advantages this has over the rousseau:

1 It's much easier to set up. 2 It's much easier to move around 3 It stores as one unit 4 It's lighter 5 It has wheels so you don't have to carry it

Now the advantages of the rousseau:

1 You're not stuck with the whole unit all the time 2 For small jobs you can use the saw by itself 3 It's more stable 4 It's built heavier 5 The fence is Wider and longer and operates more smoothly 6 The Table has formica on top and bottom , not melamine on just the top 7 The outfeed table adds even more stability 8 You can't lose the legs as they are part of the design

Either way you can't go wrong!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fits Most Saws
In case you're wondering if the RipMaster will work with your saw, it most likely will. It's universal design will attach to just about every aluminum top, direct drive, benchtop saw made (including the Makita 2702 and 2703). It doesn't fit the Dewalt 744, the new Bosch 4000 or the Ryobi BT3000, but Trojan makes a cart/stand model for those saws too(SC-744). Good luck. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars quick set up. but that is it
Yes it sets up in seconds..but the stabilty is the pits. if you own a dewalt 12 inch saw or any other saw that is other than small, stay away from this product. you will have to make some supports for the saw and also the legs bite into the wood so-so. the teeth on the legs bend as much as they bite. quality of this product is poor.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this stand
I have used most saw stands, but this is my favorite. It goes together in under 5 minutes and disassembles in under 2 minutes. It folds into a such a compact size, I can throw it behind the seat of my truck. I like the fact that it uses 2x lumber for the center support, rather than a special steel structure like some others. There is always a spare board around the worksight so it saves me carrying a center support. It is sturdy but I recommend assembling it with a 10 inch piece of lumber if you are cutting longer stock. The only drawback is that the legs do not clamp onto the stand for carrying- although the rest of the unit clamps together nicely. I jury-rigged two bar clamps to hold the legs for carrying and then use the same clamps to hold the saw tight when assembled. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money.
I bought the 35" model and I'm glad I did. I am six feet tall and far-sighted and I appreciate not having to bend over to get my bifocals to focus. Although the portability feature appealed to me when I ordered it I set mine up when I first got it and haven't taken it down since.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's too high, but I still like it.
I like the Trojan Work Center in general, but I ordered the 35" model and after useing it I wish I had the 27" model. All the parts on the Work Center work fine. I was a little uneasy about the sawhorse legs when I ordered this item, but they are very sturdy. It's also easy to transport. I would recommend the Trojan Work Center as a good value, but unless you're very tall get the 27" model.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Portable Work Center
I am a remodling contractor in Houston,Texas and do a varaity of work. I have been shopping for a new compound miter saw and have been trying to decide on how to combine the new saw with some sort of work station.

I looked at the fold up work stations, but since I have limited space to carry tools I need something more compact and a work center that could double for another use.

In the Tool Crib cataloge I found the Trojan model TWC-27 work center. From the description it sounded perfect. I placed the order and when it arrived I was very surprised at the quality of this product. For the money I was kind of expecting a much lighter duty design say for a homeowner-do-it-yourselfer. This is a professional quality work center at a very affordable price. It works great with a miter saw as well as a bench style drill press. I made a wise investment

5-0 out of 5 stars The best bet for a DeWalt 744
As soon as I saw a picture of the SC-744, I knew it was exactly what I needed - my shop is essentially an 8x16 tool shed. I received the stand a little before Christmas and had it unpacked and attached to the saw in about 10 minutes. I found the stand to be a well-considered design, very well made and quite stable when upright or on the wheels - when I paid attention to the principles of leverage. Everything fit together right out of the box except for the second set of legs that I tried. They didn't slide smoothly into their sockets, as did the first. A quick swap of leg sets front-to-back and they slipped right in.

In the last six weeks, the SC-744 has allowed me to move my saw from the shop to the back patio and to the carport with no trouble at all. Even up, over and down the 3 steps from the shop door to the carport was no problem.

If you need to make a "portable" DeWalt 744 truly "mobile", this stand would be your best choice.

2-0 out of 5 stars faulty handle pins
Assembly was easy but the spring-loaded anchoring pins that pop into the holes in the sleeves of the handle support were faulty. This is a dangerous flaw as the security of the handle in maneuvering the saw is essential. I have to attempt to file the inside "chads"(!) of the holes to allow the pins to more fully penetrate the hole and be secure. Otherwise seems fine.

3-0 out of 5 stars Convenient and useful, but one annoying flaw.
About three months ago, I added the Trojan SC-744 Portable Saw Stand and the DeWalt DW7441 Side and Outfeed Support to my Dewalt 744 saw. Since then, I've come to appreciate more the usefulness of my upgraded saw.

The cart (and the DW7441 supports) make it really easy to work anywhere.

At the peak of the summer heat, I installed a window air conditioner in the kitchen window. The window is over-sized, so I had to make a special frame to fit the airconditioner.

With the saw on the portable stand, I just rolled the equipment up onto the back patio, and set up for work right next to the window. There, I ripped my boards and plywood to size using the outfeed/side supports. The saw stand legs provided enough stability to work with large pieces using the outfeed/side supports.

Having the saw right next to my work, and at a comfortable height was really nice. When I finished, I returned the saw to the garage quickly and with ease.

Without the stand, I would have either worked with the saw on the ground; or, I would have schlepped a worktable to the patio and secured the saw to the table.

I almost gave the stand four stars... So, why do I still only give three stars to this stand? I continue to have occasional problems with the weight distribution of the saw -- raising/lowering the saw is a bit cumbersome, and I've twice banged the full weight of the saw against my foot.

Let me emphasize that the problem happens when I am setting the saw to the working position. The stand is very stable and safe when I am using it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised.
This portable table stand make it easy to setup my saw for work, and then stow it away when I am finished.

The fit-and-finish of the product is decent. The overall design is okay -- it does the job reasonably well. As advertised, the 36" table height puts the saw at a comfortable height.

There were a few things that annoyed me when I first got the stand:

1) The entire weight of the saw pivots on the wheels. I find the heaviness a bit unwiedly as I tilt the stand for transport and for setup. I think the wheels should have been placed a little "higher" to better balance the weight while pivoting.

2) One of the legs don't slide in/out smoothly from its mounting hole.

3) I have to attach small rubber bumpers to the table to protect the table from the ground during storage and transport. (The bumpers come included with the stand.) I would have liked a better scheme to protect the right side of the saw table (when the stand/saw is tilted onto the ground).

I've gotten used to these, however, and they don't bother me any more.

The set-screws to hold the legs are spring-loaded -- a nice touch.

The handle (to the left of the saw) extends and snaps into a locked position. (You can't tell that from the product picture.)

The setup is very easy. I spent about 15 minutes putting everything together using basic tools (two wrenches, and a hammer for the wheel axel nuts.)

3-0 out of 5 stars The best around because no competition
I have not seen DeWalt's stand, but remember it seemed a little pricey for a fixed base, especially after having dropped so much cash into the saw. It seems you could buy a cheaper base and adapt it easy enough, which is probably the way to go if you have little need to move your table saw much. If you work out of your garage like me though, and store the saw after use, the wheels save lots of effort. The DeWalt saw is great, but heavier alone than my skil table saw was with its base, and also larger in girth, so it is hard to move around. For me, the wheels on this unit, while disappointing, are the way to go. I say disappointing because the blue bar that you see going just behind the wheel in the picture has very little clearance from the ground, so that when wheeling it over any kind of hump the bar on each side scrapes. Poor design, and although the unit is strong enough, it appears put have been put together in someone's garage. A real company could have the thing made in China for 1/3 of the price. But since its the only thing out there, it's the way to go. Don't be dumb like me and buy the saw without getting this or some other stand at the same time. The thing does not work well on the ground! ... Read more
