20 AMP Breaker and Power Tools

Looking at Installing a Dedicated 20 Amp Breaker with 2 separate Outside Recepticals solely for running Power Tools.. Curious just how many Power Tools we could have on at the same time before popping the Breaker..

Depends on the loads the tools draw and their startup current. Looks at the labels to see how many amps the tools draw.
