probably not. what it probably means is that at full load, the unit can draw over 20 amps. that would mean a 30A line would be the safest thing to install for it. but if you’re not going to overtax it, a 20A line will probably be ok. when i ran my unisaw and DC together on the same circuit, the combined FLA (full load amp) rating of the machines was 22A (16A unisaw and 6A dust collector). never tripped a dedicated 20A 220v breaker on 12/2 gauge wire. just my $.02.
