Lifetime Products 2970 5 Foot / 60" Round Lifetime Folding Tables with White Granite Molded Top, 1.25" Round Gray Hammer Tone Collapsing Frame – 982218.
The Bottom Line: Lifetime Round folding tables - 60" round are constructed of high impact polyethylene and are stronger, lighter and more durable than wood. They will not crack, chip or peel, and are built for indoor and outdoor use. The patented steel frame provides a sturdy foundation and is protected with a powder-coated finish to prevent rusting. Lifetime 60 inch round folding tables are manufactured in the USA and backed by a ten-year warranty. 60" round folding tables are approximately 29.5" tall and weighs about 45 lbs. Yes, you can seat all the way around the table comfortably.
The table top plastic is polyethylene which is much stronger and more durable than simple resin and vinyl. The plastic includes ultra-violet protectants to prevent fading or discoloring with prolonged outdoor use. The waffle frame on the bottom provides a much stronger physical weight capacity.
Once you go with a polyethylene (plastic) Lifetime Table you can never go back to wood. These are so much lighter and stronger. We have found that customers prefer a light weight design that can be transported by one person. This table can be transported by the average adult carrying it or rolling it into a storage place or for setting up for a banquet. Whether you are considering these for your church, your rental or catering business, or for family gatherings, you will be thrilled with this table. No need to worry about staining from juice or foods. These are a breeze to clean. Softscrub cleaner is what we recommend when cleaning these tables. We do have similar tables on our site, but the 10 year commercial warranty on this table is very attractive, especially if they are going to be used often. These are excellent for Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Years Feasts, Camping, Boating, Fishing, Picnics, Sporting Events, Recreational Activities and More! This listing is for a 12 Pack. If you need less or different quantities, we also sell these in 4 Packs model 42970 and 1 Packs model 22970. Keep in mind any quantity you order over 12 is free shipping within the 48 states. There is also a table cart model 6520 designed for these tables and it holds 10 tables.
During Lifetimes stain testing, Motor oil, ketchup, mustard, blueberry syrup, spaghetti sauce, blue permanent marker was applied to the top of a granite style picnic table. The substances will sit over the weekend. The stains were allowed to sit on the table for three days. After three days the ketchup, blueberry syrup, and spaghetti sauce stains were completely removed with a paper towel and warm water. The mustard dried hard and easily peeled off. The motor oil did not stain the table but required a degreaser to clean its residue from the table surface. The permanent marker did not come off with warm water or Clorox but came off with soft scrub and a green 3m scratch pad. The green scratch also cleaned embedded dirt from the table. The green pad scratched the marker from the table without scratching the surface of the table. Grape juice, crayon markings, and red Kool-aid punch were applied to the table and allowed to sit for three days. At the end of the three day period the stains were easily removed with a damp cloth. The crayons took a little rubbing--not because they stained the table, but because their waxy consistency stuck to the table. Their marks did come off the table with minimal effort.

Signature required. Someone must sign for the product. Although damage is very rare on pallet load quantities it is helpful for us to note any damage with the driver.
Inside delivery. Do they do inside delivery? Yes, it is possible but it does cost extra. The free delivery does not include inside delivery. The freight carrier unloads it off the truck and most customers bring the tables inside one-by-one.
Orders for the 2970 Lifetime Table generally leave the warehouse within 2 business days. This product ships directly from Lifetime Products in Clearfield, UT. Please keep in mind that these are too large to ship via a normal carrier such as FedEx or UPS. Hence, they ship through an LTL carrier such as Roadway or ABF on a semi-truck. Don’t let that intimidate you. They do call to schedule a delivery to make sure someone can be there to sign for it. If you don’t have a loading dock, no worries. The freight company will schedule an appointment and we include a liftgate at no extra charge so they can unload it off the truck for you. They don’t bring it inside or around back, however. We also email you the tracking information shortly after it ships out so you can track the status of the order.
Can I seat all the way around the table or will the frame get in the way of people’s legs with the 2970 table?
Yes, you can seat all the way around the table comfortably. If you have a tall adult they may bump their legs, but the table legs are recessed enough that it isn’t a significant problem – nobody will be straddling a table leg.
Can I really seat 8 comfortably?
Yes, you may squeeze another chair in, but that takes away the “comfortably” aspect.
Can I set hot cookware on the table top?
Yes, you can set food on the tables, but you do have to be careful. Hot pans fresh off the stove, for example, could melt or warp the plastic. As a rule of thumb if your own hands can stand the heat, then so can the table.
Can one person move the tables around?
Yes, the average adult can move a 60” round plastic table including model 2970, lifetimemay, and item 982218. Once you go up to a 72” round table it’s difficult to move around with one person (unless you are planning on rolling it).
How do I clean a Lifetime Folding Table? What cleaners can I use?
For regular cleaning, mild dish soap and a damp cloth is all you need to keep your Lifetime table looking as good as new. For greasy food residues, a mild abrasive, such as Soft Scrub and a non-scratching pad will do the trick. Still, there are some stubborn residues that just soap and water can’t handle, so we’ve done some informal testing to see what works the best on what.
We gathered five different substances that are known for causing stubborn stains and applied them to a Lifetime tabletop: spaghetti sauce, mustard, coffee, ink, and an industrial marking crayon. We let them set undisturbed on the tabletop for 24 hours. After 24 hours the coffee and the mustard wiped up easily with just a wet paper towel without staining. For the rest of the substances we decided to try simple Baking Soda, Clorox, and the latest cleaner on the market, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. As per instructions with most cleaners, we let these set for a minute after applying to loosen up the substance before scrubbing.
The Baking Soda was mixed with water to form a paste. While it faded the spaghetti sauce stain a little bit, it only managed to smear the ink and the industrial marking crayon, and caused no fading on those substances whatsoever.
The Clorox spray worked very well on the spaghetti sauce, even with just a paper towel. While we didn’t test its effectiveness on fruit juice or wine, we suspect that you would have just as much success with the Clorox spray on those organic stains as well since they are similar in make up to the tomato-based sauce.
The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser performed amazingly not only on the spaghetti sauce, but the ink and the industrial marking crayon as well, which is impressive considering that they all have very different bases. With the Magic Eraser and just a little bit of elbow grease, the tabletop looked as good as new. The magic eraser is actually a scrubbing sponge that has been pre-treated with a powerful cleaning agent. For this reason, it is not recommended that you use it in combination with other household cleaners (especially Chlorine). After using the Magic Eraser, the surface of the tabletop should be rinsed before coming into contact with food.
