Can you put bolt on breakers in a main lug only subpanel?

If its a panel that accepts bolt on breakers.

You are going to have to be much clearer in your question/situation. Are you asking if there is a way to have a breaker feed a mail lug panel?

Just a quick question on this topic. How bout the ground and neutral wires coming from the circuits? Do they go on the same lug or do they have to be separated? Sorry to bud in...

It would be better if you stated a new thread, but to answer your question, it would depend on if this was a sub panel or a main panel.

If you are talking about a main breaker it would depend on whether or not the panel is field convertible to accept a main breaker.
