Is 10/2 wire ok for a 125 foot run?

by Robb   Last Updated August 13, 2019 21:21 PM

Previous owner of house ran 10/2 to his outbuildings which are 125 feet. He has lights and would run power tools like a mitre or smaller air compressor. At the breaker is a 20 amp for each run.

Is this ok? I won't be running anything other than what he had and I don't plan on doing anything more intense like awelder or IR heating. Just smaller power tools and lighting.

Or should I re run with larger guage?

The 10-2 with a 20AMP breaker is ok. The 10-2 could go to a 30 amp breaker. Just curious, are the runs in conduit or direct buried cable?
