Lifetime 6 Foot Folding Table Review


I know: “Why are you reviewing a table on a music blog?” Well, when I was setting up for a show last Sunday I realized how much easier packing my car is with this Lifetime 6 foot folding table. This thing is a folding table plus, since it also folds in half!

I have used this table for about 3 years now, and it has been awesome. It has a blow molded HDPE top that does not scratch easily and has not turned weird colors after being used in the bright sun. The legs and frame are 1-inch tubular steel that is powder coated for corrosion resistance.

The size is fairly standard, as it is 72 inches long, 30 inches deep, and 29 inches tall. When folded in half, it is a very manageable 36 inches by 30 inches by 3 inches. It only weighs 26 pounds, yet the manufacturer says it can hold up to 469 pounds. I am a little skeptical, but if you spread the weight over the whole thing it might work. All I know is that I can pile a couple of road cases and 12-inch powered speakers on it with no trouble at all.

Like I said, I have been using this table for years, and over this time I have not had any issues with it. Nothing has broken on it, it folds and unfolds easily, and there is a even a padded handle for carrying it around. Given a choice, I would prefer a smaller overall size, as I never need quite as much real estate as this one takes up. Lifetime has a 5-foot fold in half table that is only 27 inches wide, which would be a better size for me, but nobody local to me seems to be selling them.

Anyway, if you are looking for a highly portable table for gigs, I would highly recommend picking up one of these Lifetime folding table. They are only around $45 each, and you can find them at you local Lowe’s or Home Depot.
