Answer: 
In the specifications listed below the price, it shows "Accepts #8-#2/0 AWG Cu or or #8-#2/0 AWG Al Wire". So, it looks to me like 6 ga. wire falls in that range. I have one of these breakers and it really does look like it could take up to a 2/0 wire.

Hi sparkyy,
I would have to recommend that you speak to someone in the electrical department at your local Home Depot or consult a professional electrician. I don't want to give you bad information without having all of the details.

Answer: 
Hi mikefl,
This circuit breaker can be used as a main breaker to a subpanel downstream as long as the panel is rated for 70 Amps. It depends on the application you are using the breaker for. I would recommend contacting a professional electrician.
