Electrical 60 double pole

When it says 60 double pole does that mean 60 amp each let or is it 30 amp each leg?
Thanks in advance Chris

If you are talking about a common house breaker, then it is 60 amps for each leg. Assuming that is the case, it would take a 60 amp (or over ) load to trip it, or 60+ amps to the neutral or ground from either leg if a 240 volt breaker.
