There are variables brother.

the distance from the breaker and wire size used on that circuit is just one of them.

A 30 amp line, would be a better choice.

We tested these with an amp meter and found starting amps are 15-16, but can develop 20-21 in extended runs once the pressure gets to 4500 psi.

This is on a non dedicated circuit, in the shop using 12awg wiring, so bear that in mind.

The longer and/or lighter run of wire you have, the more amps they will pull.

This is the reason light duty extension cords are not advised when using the compressor.

Hope this helps.
