If that’s the case, then the Worx Pegasus work bench could be right up your alley. 

As a strong yet portable work bench, the Worx Pegasus is one of the best options on the market. If you aren’t convinced yet, keep reading to learn all about why the Worx Pegasus work bench is one of our favorites. 

Worx Pegasus Folding Work Table: A Quick Summary

Although the Worx Pegasus work bench is built from plastic, it’s very durable and stable. It’s on par with more expensive work benches that are made from stronger materials. Most users love how it can hold anything they need it to without feeling unstable.

As a portable work table, it’s lightweight and versatile, folding up for easy transport and storage. It comes with extra accessories such as clamps, dog pegs, and link locks that increase its usability. Whether you need a work bench or a sawhorse, the Worx Pegasus can do it.

It is worth noting that the underside of the table is rather rough, which makes it difficult to clamp onto. There’s also no carrying handle, and it doesn’t have a lock to keep it securely closed. Fortunately, the table is light enough that it’s easy to tuck under your arm and walk with. 

The Design

When folded up, the work bench measures 35” x 25” x 5.5”, and when unfolded, it has a workspace that measures 31” x 25”. It stands 32” tall.

Reinforced and Strong: The Worx Pegasus is built with plastic, but reinforced with aluminum to make it stronger. The work bench can support up to 300 pounds without difficulty, remaining stable without wobbling or tipping as long as you set it up properly.

When the Worx Pegasus work bench is used as a sawhorse, the maximum load capacity is increased to 1000 pounds. The work bench won’t be any more unstable as a sawhorse than as a regular work bench.

The plastic is also strong enough to withstand most marks. You can saw, cut, and drill on it, and it’ll hold its own pretty well. Even if you scratch, dent, cut, or hammer into the table’s surface, it will continue to do its job without difficulty.

Versatile: When it comes to versatility, the Worx Pegasus work bench outdoes itself. It can be spread out to become a full work bench or collapsed into a sawhorse. With extra features such as dog pegs, clamps, and link locks, you have even more options. The link locks make it easy to connect the work bench to another surface or table to expand your working surface area.

On the table surface of the work bench, you’ll notice several holes. These are smartly designed so that you can drill into the table without ever harming it. Align your wood and drill and power right through. Your table will be undamaged, and you’ll have a perfect hole. 

The Worx Pegasus work bench only weighs 30 pounds. For its strength and durability, this is impressive. It’s portable, easy to store, and not too heavy which is great given that there is no carry handle. 

The work bench also comes with a storage shelf at the bottom to hold the extra accessories. There is a smaller tray at the top that has little sections for nails and screws. You’ll also find a tape measure built into the top tray. While it’s not super extensive or fancy, it can certainly be helpful.

Assembly

As a portable work bench, there will be some assembly required every time you want to use it. However, with the Worx Pegasus work bench, you barely need much actual assembly.

When you’re ready to use the work bench, all you need to do is unfold it. Grab the table wings and pull out. That’s it! You don’t need to tighten any bolts or click any locks into place. The table is ready to go as quickly as you can pull it open.

Collapsing the table is just as easy. Each pair of legs has a button that allows you to unlock them. Once the legs are unlocked, fold the work bench right back up and carry it off to your next destination. 

Included Accessories & Information

The Worx Pegasus work bench comes with an instruction manual and a warranty brochure. The instruction manual answers any questions and reminds you how to fold and unfold the table. When you open the box, the table is already fully assembled and ready to go.

Just recently, the warranty on the Worx Pegasus work bench was upgraded from 3 years to 6 years, but your warranty brochure will make sure to clarify. 

In terms of accessories, this work bench comes fully equipped. It has four peg dogs and two clamps. On the table itself, you’ll find eight spots for the clamp dogs. The two clamps come built into the table and have rubber tips on both ends. If you need to remove the clamps so you can use them on another project, you can do so easily.

Each clamp can reach up to 18” in a horizontal or vertical position, and put up to 300 pounds of force on the clamped material to prevent unwanted movement and wriggling. While the table does remain pretty stable, you should avoid clamping especially long pieces of wood to it. This can start to throw off the table’s balance and make it less steady. 

Affordability

In terms of affordability, the Worx Pegasus work bench is amazing. It’s a budget work bench that exceeds expectations. Portable work benches can run pretty expensive, but the Worx Pegasus doesn’t. Since it’s built mainly from durable plastic and reinforced with aluminum only where necessary, you’re not charged an exorbitant amount for it. 

Final Verdict

The Worx Pegasus is impressive and affordable, so it’s no wonder that the overall consensus is pretty positive. We love how stable this work bench is even when we’re working on it, and the included lock links for connecting it to other tables.

Another favorite aspect of this work bench is its lightweight design. Even without a carrying handle, it’s easy to transport. We simply fold the table up and tuck it under the arm. We could easily carry the work bench like this by holding onto one of the wings. 

This portable multi function work table is a great addition to any garage or workshop. Designed for effortless transport and convenient storage, the sturdiness and features of this impressive work table and sawhorse will make the job of any handyman that much easier.
