Because you are running a sub-panel if think it is not a mater of what you want but what you can have. I would run as much juice as you can. Today you might not need 50A but then you get a new dust collector and now you cannot run that and the TS as the same time. (yes I know you do not need 50A for both those in a 20×16 shop)

What can you pull from your main? Can you have a separate drop from from the pole (that is what I did but the pole is next to my shop)?

Good point, I’ll be awaiting getting an electrician onsite to determine capacity and options.

This is residential and all electric is buried.
