Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

Beautiful piece of equipment
Generac was recommended by a friend who is a contractor. I have been very impressed with the quality of the unit. We have utilized both the 240V and 120V to power the essentials in our home, and it has operated perfectly. I feel much better prepared for future outages. The only minor con was that the manual lists engine oil capacity at 1.5q, but the engine only holds 1q.

It's done it all
My generac has done it all and continues to deliver. From ice storm power back up for my homes to helping me build my new house this unit has delivered time and time again. No it isn't quiet but it always starts and has many hours on the clock and keeps on ticking. A great generator that has never let me down.

Scare at Startup, but Happy So far
Would not start or even kick over initially. Went to troubleshooter in manual, and checked to see if plug wire was removed at factory (it was on securely). Desperate, I pulled the plug, checked the gap and re-inserted. Well, it took quite a few more turns to get in that it was to remove, so apparently somebody at factory failed to insert the plug the whole way. After this fix and 1+ hours of shrugging and expletives and troubleshooting, this baby fired right up and I was extremely relieved. Please check your plug if you have similar problem.

Purchased this to get through the many power outages we seem to get. Will have electrician install transfer switch and inlet box (on backorder). Can't comment on performance until I actually use it to power up.

This warranty does not apply to units used for Prime Power in place of utility where utility power service is present or where utility power service does not normally exist. Once a generator has experienced commercial or rental use, it shall thereafter be considered a non-consumer use generator for the purpose of this warranty.


              All warranty expense allowances are subject to the conditions defined in Generac’s Warranty Policies, Procedures and Flat Rate Manual.


              THIS WARRANTY SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE FOLLOWING:

              • Failures due, but not limited, to normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence or improper use. As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and replacement to perform as designed. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
              • Failures caused by any act of God and other force majeure events beyond the manufactures control.
              • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.

              THIS WARRANTY IS IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, SPECIFICALLY, GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

               

              Any implied warranties which are allowed by law, shall be limited in duration to the terms of the express warranty provided herein. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to purchaser/owner.

               

              GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS ONLY LIABILITY SHALL BE THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF PART(S) AS STATED ABOVE. IN NO EVENT SHALL GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS, INC. NEGLIGENCE.

               

              Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to purchaser/owner.
