As I continue to learn and dial in the electrical plan for the garage

I wanted to run some things by everyone and get some opinions.

I think it is ok to put a link to The Home Depot of the breakers I am talking about, figure it would be easier to show some links so everyone can really see what I am asking about.

60 amp 2 inch double pole circuit breaker

100 amp 2 inch double pole circuit breaker
http://www.homedepot.com/Electrical-...atalogId=10053

- Ok to recap the situaion, have a main panel with 200 amp breaker going approx. 125 feet to a detached garage, have not determined yet if I want to put a 60 or 100 amp sub panel.

Question:
At the main panel would I put on of these breakers in and then run # 3 awg thwn to the sub panel?????

Has anyone used these is this the way you would do it, if not what would you do and why?

Thanks,
Mike
