Joe, as you know, I have a detatched garage and the pwer is a 3-wire feed off a breaker in the house panel to the garage sub-panel. I think it is 60 amp. There are four breakers in there, 15amps ea.
I just do not want to add another meter head, which I do not think is needed...
I have 200 amp svc. to the house.
If you only have 3 wires running to the new garage, It is probalby only 110 volts. 220 volts is run with 4 wires. You would need to pull an additional 110 volt wire, that would add up to 220. They are different 110 wires. Most auto lifts are less than 20 amps, so a 20 amp, 220 volt breaker would work.
