I have a pair of wooden saw horses that I like the best, and a set of plastic saw horses that fold flat, that are OK. I also have 4 different roller stands that are easy to adjust their height. 90% of the time, I work off of my tailgate. But sometimes I'll set up a tool on a sawhorse and use the roller stand to support material out far. Right now I'm doing a lot of Hardie Lap Siding. I cut it off of my tailgate with a roller stand set up to support what hangs off of my tailgate. The most common "big" tool that I deal with is my chop saw. It fits perfectly on top of my wood sawhorses when I put them close together. There is no moving it around once it's in place, but it's very handy when set up. Since I work on other peoples homes for a living. it's important for me to be able to set up and get to work quickly. Hauling around a cart of some kind seems like it would take up a lot of room, and take more effort to set up.
