Two dryers on one 220v circuit?
Not only does the wire size limit the amperes rating (and the breaker rating) for a circuit but the kind (shape and prong arrangement) of receptacle and the appliance(s) itself (themselves) have maximum circuit amperage ratings.
The plug on the appliance cord also implies a maximum circuit amperage rating, and you may not cut it off and substitute a plug rated higher.
A definite no-no. "Each dryer requires a 30 amp circuit so I will run one 60 amp circuit daisy chaining to two dryer receptacles."
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
